In times of adversity and when the market turns red, we do well to remember our "why." Why are we doing this in the first place? Why am I trading or investing and why am I in the holdings I am? Of course were all here to make money, but am I doing it for my family, myself, to pay for things, or to chart the future...going back to our "why" reminds us of why we are here and why we will persevere through the tough times.

I know as a father to three boys, I want to leave them with a legacy...something they can start off with when they become of age, and perhaps leave in them a sense that they too can become financially independent and can be the master of their own fate, with hard work and conviction.

Green day or red, your "why" is the reason you are here. Our "whys" are own to have and to hold, but they have all brought us to this app and these stocks. Bring your "why" to the community and let's lift each other up in spite of all those who would see us fail.

My mother was and is still pretty financially irresponsible, so I grew up learning some of her bad habits. I spent my 20s learning the basics of finances and I’m now in my 30s hoping to learn even more with the stock market. I want to build up a nice little nest of cash for myself and continue to learn how to properly invest 🐣 My initial reaction to all the red this morning was sheer panic and horror but chilled out after reading reassuring comments like yours. Thanks!

Always here to stay positive and reassuring!

My why- i sold my soul in a crappy job so i would have a pension after 30 years. well, 32 years in and i can’t afford to retire yet. My family deserves more than i can currently give them, so i am here, trying to get just a lottle bit ahead. Nothing grand, i just want to atop struggling financially.

Why do we have no other choice but to invest in a 1 sided market where the market makers are sleeping with all the brokers and we can't even see their dark pool trades. where's the transparency. I feel like a slave Investing. that's my Why. Why do we have no choice but to be a part of this slave system where almost everyone fail.

Thanks for your post, I'm currently down $17k and needed to read this! My "why" is to help pay for the care of my mom who was recently diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia and my mother-in-law who was recently diagnosed with Alzheimers. Both are now in assisted living homes which isn't cheap. Selfishly another "why" is to be able to retire early and pass on some wealth to my boys.

My why is for my son, To have the money to help him get a great start to adUlthood. Also selfishly to have a more comfortable retirement for myself and my wife. Down days or discount days as I like to call it is what I dream of, usually. however not having cash to invest on these days is painful, just as painful as the losses.

Awesome...a great why!
