Gay and desparate.
But his point is real. I am, just like a lot of us, fighting the urge to just be depressed and blow my brains out (not literally, so please dont PM me and try to talk me into putting the gun down). Its getting harder each day. But his point is, none of this is because of us, none of this was caused by us, we cant change a f***ing thing, and we need to take it from here, and seize the day.
I keep saying that to myself. Some days it works and some days it doesn't

i like it.   makes me feel better   u tough guys are full of crap   im scared

All the "love" crap in there is pretty silly, but I think the overall message is right on. We need to stay focused and keep our eyes on the prize (which is that the market will stabilize and the general public will once again feel comfortable investing). And hope that the changes being made in our industry are for the better and not detrimental to our ability to pay our mortgages.

About feeling comfortable...in the 20th Century, investors saw two downturns of 40% or more and they happened a generation apart. So far in the 21st Century, clients have seen two declines of 40% or more and they happened 6 years apart.

I certainly hope you are right with the idea that they will feel comfortable with investing, but I'm not sure that trust and confidence will be so easy to recover.

You are probably right, but I believe that it is part of our jobs to make our clients feel comfortable and have faith in us and in the market. But it won't be easy. You are very right about that.

I wonder what the source was -- sound like something you'd get in AA, or from the Kabril Gibran? I hope you didn't spend all day writing it when you coud be out knocking on doors?

Mar 9, 2009 6:56 pm

Ohya, after many hours of research, I found "the source":
