I was given $100K five month ago plus now it is down to a whopping $12K from poor choices with trading stocks plus just a sizable downturn in the market.
Most of it was not our fault as the whole world is seeing the pain of inflation plus whatnot so I can’t totally blame myself.
But I should have listened to our mom when he said to just drop it in the bank where it will be safe. I didn’t tell anyone about losing so much currency because they would undoubtedly just scorn me or know sorry for me. My a/c plus heating company I work for luckily keeps me afloat each month with a wonderful daily workload. Hopefully our $12K will turn around a single morning plus become the $100K it once was, even though I suppose it is going to take some time to get there. But then again, all I got is time. I’ll keep toiling at the local company plus hopefully save a little buffer in the bank so I don’t have to touch what is left of our inheritance. I’ve made some mistakes in life plus have to forgive myself for them or I will end up a bitter plus regretful person, which I promised myself I would not become. I can also do some service calls for our HVAC shoppers in their homes plus make some extra currency if I want to. I actually don’t mind toiling as it gives me a sense of purpose plus keeps our mind sharp. I have the HVAC industry to thank for that.
