I feel your pain!
What people do not realise, sometimes, is that by the time you are hooked to trading in your
after-work hours you may start making life choices that may not sit well with you and those
around you (e.g. family): imagine leaving your family/partner at seven in the morning for work
and then, being back at six in the afternoon, you had dinner quickly and then plonked yourself
in front of the computer for the next three hours to do trading... Would everybody accept it?
Some partners/families may oppose it and/or make emotional pleas to your heart because
they want more time with you...
Also, what we may not realise at the start of the journey is this: with the best intentions, how can
we possibly trade effectively and in a focussed manner when things in our full-time work get very
busy, or stressful, or difficult? We may come home and have absolutely no energy or focus to get
trading, whether it is actually setting up trades, or doing your journal/analysis, or managing your
account (or being on BabyPips/MeetPips)!
There is no easy answer: we alone must deal with our trading goals and our trading-life balance!
I wish you well, and I hope that things will get easier for you!
