What a great quote:
“If you are too scared to look at your portfolio, you are a sucker in the investing game.”

Why are you too scared to look? You don’t want to see how much money you’ve lost?
Maybe you’re looking at the wrong metrics?
Shouldn’t investing be fun?
If it’s torturous, are you going to participate?
That’s exactly the point. You have to have an investing blueprint that allows you to understand how to make better decisions. When the market is volatile, you don’t react. You stick to your plan and everything ends up ok.
And, you can look and not be horrified.
