Backstory: I have a friend who got laid off from her white collar job. She ended up having to get a job at a restaurant to make ends meet. We were talking about how insanely difficult it is to have such a physically demanding job and only to earn less than minimum wage from it.
Then I thought about the traders, crypto, stocks or even forex and how they’ve been raking in $$$ within the past year just from the craziness in the markets.
Those who’ve made a good chunk of money from trading, do you ever feel guilt that you’re in such a privileged position that you can make money from just being on your comp or maybe just buying bitcoin or something? If so, how do you “balance” that out? And if you don’t feel any guilt at all, why not?
