I was up my average winning day yesterday, and hit my stop. Got down today, fought back like a beast and got up about half my winning day, and then got wrecked. I am so furious right now I could kill, ok? But I am not going to trade.

Whelp, the market broke me yesterday. I completed the slow motion blow up by finally raging out. The market really is a magic mirror, and it created the conditions for me to finally get me what I wanted: the emotional relief of ending the pain of consecutive losing days by destroying the account. SUICIDE TRADING. You just kind of watch, glassy eyed, with this "f*ck it" feeling, as you finish yourself off.

I will say that I am grateful for these funded accounts. God only knows how much money I would light on fire if it wasn't for them. Good for them for capturing the value of my broken ego.

I'm a middle aged guy with real responsibilities, so I can't do this every day, but if I ever do it again, I will come back here and post my images.

Every experience we create is a mirror of our own consciousness! And so... what will you choose to create and reflect?

You are never in the wrong place... but sometimes you are in the right place looking at things in the wrong way.
