i systematically destroyed my life redirecting the stress of roundtripping generational wealth from $50, which i KNEW was the top. all the time spent researching, fudding, making memes, dreaming, basking in a 3 year head start on the rest of the market, the completely real prospect of retiring my entire immediate family, down the drain. i can't even muster anger, sadness, or self pity. i'm just a catatonic freak with shitty unpumpable bags and a completely btfo investment thesis.

I'm there with you, anon. The past 2 years have been a seriously brutal, massively destructive catastrophe for me. I distracted myself last year with fitness and hobbies, but you can only run away for so long from the bleakness of knowing you were standing at the door of financial independence, which is all you ever really wanted, and it vanished and it doesn't have to come back and probably won't. So here I am without it.

For the last few months I've gotten blackout drunk almost daily. The fitness I'd built by year end is now fully undone. I stopped therapy because it couldn't do anything more for me. I don't post here much anymore. That has been positive. It has helped my brain produce thoughts that aren't tinged LINK like every thought I've had has been for so many years. After all, it was my One Big Hope. I bought LINK in my mid-20s when I was a young man on an upward trajectory, ahead of my peers, with a good career and a quiet inner confidence in myself, belief that I was going to do it. Now I'm in my 30s, still renting an apartment, with not enough saved, watching on uselessly as my friends marry, buy homes, and start families.

2) made it to mid 7 figures from a loan
3) is massively overleveraged
4) has a completely lower mid-tier job
5) has a family to feed

I never wake up feeling like this, I actually wake up happy every day to have the privilege to have any Chainlink at all. 99% of people have literally zero Chainlink, and I have a shitload.

Maybe someday I'll give some LINK away, but I won't be selling it. These posts are obviously fake and gay. The older I get, the more I think there is some sort of sinister illuminati who LOVES telling people that investing is scary or will ruin their lives. It's probably the same people telling you that eating meat is bad, or that having no kids is amazing.

Same boat. Part of it has to do with that my work situation is fucking misery, and I would have uncuffed these chains had I sold. If I was happier at work I'd probably feel less desperation over waiting it out further.

I wasn't sure it was the top, honestly. It felt like LINK never got a full pump, probably the only reason I didn't sell on the way down.

I am basically a shell of my former self at this point, and selling at $50 was my only chance to escape this fate. It is compounded by the fact that I had chance and blew it.

My family keeps telling me to see therapists, get medicated, etc. But nothing will change the truth.

You seem disingenuous, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and say this - everybody is different. We are all going to react to this shit different ways. You should feel lucky you're not caving under the anxiety like we are.

All any of us can hope for is that the time for LINK isn't too far away. I think for a lot of us if it takes too long it'll be too late, we'll have destroyed our lives in other ways that money can't fix.

Even though on paper Link seems on an upright trend, all of us are desperate and depressed.
I was 21 when I first discovered Link, now I’m 27 and I have nothing to look forward to in life. And no me getting a slightly good wageslave position or more fit, doesn’t count. And the worst part is that I have given up on ever hoping we’ll climb out of this price range.

Checked quads, keep a positive outlook. If your early alpha into Chainlink and it’s potential, let alone blockchain tech itself, was an easy rags-to-riches proposition, there would be millions upon millions of normies jumping into it.

They will say you got lucky when LINK hits $500. Then they will resent you and your “fortuitous timing” when it surges past $5,000. At $81,000, you will have so much wealth and influence that you can make a positive change in your community and give back how you see fit.

Stay positive anon. It’s coming, and most can’t see the potential.

Why I didnt sell "generational wealth" (only 3 million dollars):

1. Because even with the dump, i know i Will never be a hobo even if i Lost my job for some years
2. Because when i was 6 I had an autist moment where i told my parents to invest in Google, and when i was 16 in BTC. My autism was right and It happened again in Etherdelta release, but this time i had a 10k to go all in without getting approvals.
3. Because since 2017 i have worked on myself to protect my linkies. I made exercise to make sure if i lose my job i could get money by picking fruit in the fields or be a bike delivery Guy. I also studied a lot and in the span of 5 years i managed to get promoted and double my salary, all with the motivation of being strong enough to protect my linkies
4. Because I know I can stay deluded FAR more than what the market can stay solvent. I just dont want to be inmense rich, but also to make sure the world of lies and shadows Burns while me and a selected group of hardheaded badass anons ascends to the world elite.

And this is why, despite all the fud I read, im not even selling my linkies, but buying more at these proceso. Thank you for reading, my dear pennyless fudsters

The amount of times I've thought "this is the bottom because I have hit rock bottom" over the last year are enough to tell me the bottom may not even be in yet. The old "The market can stay irrational longer than you can stay solvent" quote has never rung more true for me.

Hmm I think it would have been enough but the problem is you go from basically $0 to 7 figures in such a short time span you kind of lose sight of the value of that money. People who haven't experienced it think it's greed, but it's something else. Naivety maybe... just like, your brain can't quite process how much money you really have in the moment, and then you lose it and all of a sudden it all sinks in what it was actually worth.

It's hard. If in a year or so from now we still haven't budged, or worse, dropped more, I have no fucking idea how I'll cope. Getting through this last year was really, really fucking hard. I don't know if I can do another.

CCIP is imminent. Also instills great confidence to hear him discussing a prioritization of security over what many short-time-preference holders chasing price would want instead.

i guess that makes sense. i remember when i was get gains and it was certainly overwhelming.

but i stand by my statement that there is an addiction element to this. seeing those gains (at least for me) was fucking intoxicating. i never wanted it to stop. and that intoxication for me was driven by my greed. i could have made so much more money if only i didnt want it so bad.

Another late 30s (39 yr old) checking here boys. Also roundtripped from my holdings in 2018 and hardly took any profit, but I'm still alive and kicking and still have plenty of great years ahead of me. My unsolicited advice to some of you is to force yourself to workout. It works wonders on an idle mind. And try to force yourself into some social situations on weekends even though you may not want to.

Agree with >>55011111 we may never see $50 again, but imo definitely back into the $20s within the next two years. That should leave with really nice profit levels to at least take some profits as a down payment on a house or to roll into other investments. And then you hang onto the rest just in case we hit it big.

We are almost out of this shit bear season. The worst is behind us. Just keep moving forward and you'll look back at these days and laugh in a few years. The journey is all about the struggle. Stay strong and pump iron and take some boxing/mma classes. Try not to drink a few weekdays and then reward yourself on the weekend. Don't worry about what your peers are doing.

I listened today, yea. He sounds relatively optimistic but I don't get the sense that we're just around the corner from anything.

I hear you on the Amazon/Google argument buuuut also honestly no fucking way I can hold that long... it took like 15 years for those companies to finally see their dues. That's 9 fucking years from now. Got to just pray for another near term speculative bubble so I can at least cash out SOME and ride that out.

Everyone and their mother thinks we're about to be back in a bull market. I just don't see it. Macro hasn't changed really other than inflation coming down some, but jobs market isn't great, salaries are down, nobody is spending. This will hurt industry and lead to more cuts. Without US going back into QE mode so companies can borrow and hire again we are probably in for more pain... and Jerome seems set on no QE for the near term at least.

I don't think we're on the verge of a bull run either since IMO we haven't hit the bottom of the market yet (I mean the overall economy, not specifically crypto). If we're in for a depression then we may not see a bullrun for another 6 years but if this is just a 'normal' recession then we could possibly already be passed the half-way mark and bullrun could resume as early as next year. I think it's a cointoss though whether it's recession or depression so not really good odds...

That’s my point, anon. You need to expand your time preference.

In your inability to hold onto an asset that you know you’re early on, you’ll inevitably end up chasing perceived short term gains and at best make a little profit and at worst (and most likely) lose money as well as lose out on the greatest asymmetrical return you identified years earlier.

Patience is fucking hard but I urge you to find it. Same as working out, it takes dedication and consistent pain tolerance. You need to realize these principles make you stand apart from the pack. Both in physique, mental fortitude and wealth.
