We’re not robots, it’s human nature to be emotional. Unless you’re a sociopath it’s a difficult feat to completely detach from your circumstances.
I see so many people get down on someone who’s feeling emotional about their portfolio, or their situation. “You’re too emotional man” should not be the response to someone having a hard time.
I’ve been investing for a few decades now; stocks, real estate, crypto, and while it gets easier to detach your emotions from investing, there’s definitely days when it stings more than others. And that’s ok.
We’re all looking to better our lives through our investments, and if they don’t work out, that’s something we have to process. Don’t suppress it, it’s ok to feel.
You will learn to make your emotions work for you, you’ll learn to let them flow through you when it comes time to make a decision, you’ll learn that certain emotions lead to FOMO or panic selling. You’ll learn, and then you’ll grow.
