Not in terms of money losses, but psychically?
I’m going to suggest that suffering is a necessary part of the process for becoming a great trader, for mastering any difficult task, really, and maybe even for succeeding in life.
I’m reading a great book right now - Man’s Search for Meaning by Victor E Frankl. The first part tells the story of being in four different Nazi concentration (extermination) camps and losing his entire family but being one of the few survivors (only 1/28 prisoners managed this). Frankl explains how he managed to survive. Part of it was luck, but most of it was that he was able to give his life meaning through suffering nobly. While many of his fellow prisoners, tortured by hunger, cruel guards, and Typhus fever, lost hope and died soon after, he was able to see the purpose of his life as one of suffering, while trying to encourage his fellow prisoners, so that he could eventually help others to find meaning in their lives.
The second part describes his psychotherapeutic theory called ‘logotheraphy’ that heals by assigning meaning to life. There are 3 ways to do this, according to Frankl. 1. Create a work or deed. 2. Experience pleasure or 3. Suffer with dignity. In a concentration camp options 1 and 2 are not possible so only 3 remains. However since suffering is universal it means every life can have meaning.
Learning to trade can feel like torture sometimes, and the easiest thing to do is to simply quit and try something less taxing, but I suspect if you can suffer and keep a sense of humour, or help out another trader you will find that it is bearable. Anyway, it’s a quick read and highly recommended. Check your library.
