If possible you need to emotionally let go that you had that money. Easier said than done.

It’s going to be hard – but there is someone out there with the same job and same amount of assets as you, who isn’t unhappy because they never had the higher amount and lost it. Logically you can be as happy as that guy.

How you got the money in the first place may have a bearing here. If you worked hard for it or it is inherited there could be anger/guilt attached. It’s worth thinking about and processing that.

Work is kind of a separate issue and probably totally fixable. A separate ASK HN or StackOverflow question might help there get you in the right direction.

Get a financial adviser is a good point mentioned below. Also if you are in financial difficulty you should get advice about that too (debt consolidation etc.).

Should you hold the coins? I don’t know. I’ve lost a bit of money. Not trivial but not devastating amount. I will probably hold it for a few years. I went in knowing I could lose it though so I thought about “what if this happens” already.
