Not to psychoanalyze, but you did bring it up: I think what you are experiencing has nothing at all…

My fear is not for myself. I have been a chicken for a long time. If the market crashes, I will lose very little and will treat it as a buying opportunity. I fear for those who will lose their jobs and homes when we have the next recession and I fear it will be another bad one because of mismanagement of the financial markets.

Recessions bring the suffering closer to home. That hurts.

Oh, do you really believe it is important to “stay fashionable?” What does that even mean?
