I need to let go of that money because it is in someone else’s pocket now
I got the Robinhood app a year and a half ago just after lockdown to give myself something to do, however it was one of the worst financial decisions I’ve ever made. I’ve been saving cash from my online teaching job and managed to save over $13,000 in the bank in a few weeks. Sadly, I took that cash and purchased some cryptos with it and now my cash has dwindled down to zero. It almost seems impossible that you can lose all of your money but trust me, it’s totally doable. I’m impatient and greedy and that cost me dearly. I could have taken that cash and purchased a nice heating and a/c unit to save me energy costs in the house since the winter time was so cold the last two years. I worked so hard for that cash and just threw it all away with my bad habits, I guess life can be a bitter pill to swallow sometimes. Now I have to work part time at the air conditioner store stocking shelves with smart thermostats and heat pumps and think about all of the cash I wasted. I need to let go of that money because it is in someone else’s pocket now. My cooling representative told me she made the same mistake and that she is a cooling expert and not a financial expert for a reason. I guess we just need to stick to what we are good at and let the other people do it for you. I’ll just focus now on the indoor air quality in my house instead of cryptos for a healthier mind, body, and bank account!
