(besides my political views).
hard to take it mentally to earn nowadays 500 times my average income of the last years, feel like i've got the financial midas touch - in reality it's been over 20 years of surviving hard times and crashes and reading day by day + learning by trading nearly everything under the sun.
just very few of my old friends had the same experience before - and are still the great persons i knew for a long time.
i'm not into the usual status symbols surrounding many nouveau rich ones, try to give financial advice to very close friends, who'd like to live a similar independent life without a senseless work.
just feeling more secure, it's easier to get up in the morning having a worry free day ahead, but generally i'm not any happier than before the silver rush in april, where i made a (small) fortune with just my trading account.
the general problems all around our planet are far from solved.
