How shall I classify this? A reflection post perhaps?
First of all, to my followers: don't follow me, at least not blindly. I'm not here to lead you. But if you want, you can walk side by side with me and we see how we can learn from each other. Someone asked me for my age because I seem experienced (you know who you are), but don't mistake old age for experience. There are many people, at half my age, who is twice as experienced as I am. Experience is an accumulation of past mistakes, reflection and rectified actions. You can have the experience of doing the same thing for 20 yrs yet have the experience of just 1 solid year. Age means nothing in a non-labour intensive vocation.
Second: If you don't know my style, I prefer the hard truths spoken in 10 mins rather than talking about the weather for 10 hrs. I can take the criticism, and am expecting it because that's the reason I share my trades. I'm here to learn from you as much as you might be learning from me. I'm not a trading guru, so don't treat me as such. It's a hat that I know I can't wear. But if you want to talk about academic subjects that I teach (I'm a tutor), bring it on. I'm a subject matter expert lol, so in a way, I'm a academic exam-busting guru literally. We all have different views, and there's enough room to disagree yet be friendly with each other. Investingnote is a sacred place for me, and I love it so much because of the happy 'online memories' of serious chats and nonsense banter. Don't make this place a slug-fest of insults and finger pointing and ruin the experience for everyone else. I believe kindergarten is way beyond our age already.
Thirdly, life is too short to hold anger. Sure, sometimes shit happens and you let it out. Rant for 5 mins, scream and shout profanities all you want. But after that, move on. That's a trick I read about. If you're the victim of a mud fest, just ignore. Eventually the truth will come out. How you react to a situation reflects more on yourself than the perpetrator. If you are nonchalant, the perpetrator is just doing a monologue, a soliloquy. Just watch the show and clap at the end of the day. Takes two hands to clap. If you want an eye for an eye, the whole world will be blind. I don't know about you, but while I can't control others, I can definitely control myself. Be better than this.
