Riddle me this people

What am I supposed to say to my grandfather when he says trading is PART OF MY MENTAL ILLNESS and that I belong in an INSANE ASYLUM for even thinking I can make a living off it?

What, I still can't call him a fucking twat for that little remark? Please.

I don't give a fuck anymore I'm just doing what I need to do to get this thing off the ground.

But the last thing I'm gonna do is kowtow and say "ohhhh you're so right oh wise old man" when he tells me things like this.

Call it foolish, call it arrogant, call it what you want.

All I know is that it's SO IRRITATING and I can't deal with views like this regarding trading when I have spent 100's of fucking hours working out a trading plan, strategy, screen time, etc.
