The best way to handle situations like yours is to be honest about why you were terminated. You cannot justify or blame, but will need to show how you have learned from the mistake. Unfortunately, it may not be easy to overcome, eventually there will be a company will be willing to give you an opportunity. When you fill out an application, instead of putting HR as the contact, you should try putting your direct supervisor. This may help your case if the reference is given directly rather than the generic response from HR.
