I mean that’s pretty much it but if you post about your problem in your marriage or with substance abuse or difficult parents for the love of GOD get a second opinion from an actual professional - who will tell you that, fun fact, your husband not making you a sandwich is not spousal abuse.
EDIT: thank you for all the awards! I really appreciate all the feedback too. A ton of people have pointed out that professional help is expensive and hard to come by and I 100% agree - if anyone’s interested, I use these videos to check myself before I wreck myself when I can’t physically go see my therapist in person. https://youtube.com/c/TheBartonBlueprintforEmotionalIntelligence
Also, I see a lot of people are offended over the fact that I said 23 years olds in the title - this is because I am literally 23. I for some reason assumed most people on those threads are around my age, but the truth is I have no idea how old the average Redditor is.
EDIT 2: I am not the husband who didn’t want to make my wife the sandwich.
I feel like with /u/deepfuckingvalue being positioned as the figurehead of the $GME movement and the 'if he is still in I'm still in' crowd that some people may feel betrayed if he decided to sell his whole position and take profits.
Just remember that when DFV was buying $GME at prices as low as $4 per share he wasn't signing up for the 'diamond hands never sell' club and he never got into the play for reasons like smashing hedge funds, curing cancer etc. That stuff has all come about from us and people jumping on the bandwagon.
WSB before this crazy week that has changed the sub forever was all about taking on risk to try and make money fast. DFV has achieved that on a scale we haven't seen before and if he decides to take profits we should support him doing so and not get upset that it may affect the price etc or say he betrayed a cause he never signed up for.
If you've watched the guys youtube you will know he's an extremely nice and likeable guy, would hate to see people calling him judas or whatever if he decides to sell.
It is the first time that the financial market is being used against the same monsters who bet on the failures of companies and enjoy manipulating the markets and impoverishing investors.
At least, it is the first time it is happening in front of my eyes and I can actively be part of it.
What is happening has become very serious, but it is experienced with that romanticism and irony that is not often seen in the world of the stock market.
The thing that no one mentions, however, is the incredible contribution that the GME affair is making to global financial culture. Not only are the videos of youtubers explaining what's going on increasing exponentially, but the incredible thing is that even influencers and youtubers completely outside the stock and financial game are talking about it.
The consequence of this is that a lot of people are getting informed, they are trying to understand what is happening, why it is happening, and what are the rules and mechanisms that are permitting this situation.
This wave of information is spreading at lightning speed financial concepts that have always remained obscure to most people.
In short, ordinary people are opening their eyes. Financial education, albeit minimal, is beginning to be part of the cultural baggage of young and old alike. And this will have huge consequences in the future.
This meme, and the whole GME situation, is opening the eyes to the world. I could compare it to the boost that the first trips to the moon gave to space engineering, or the boost to Karate gyms after the success of the movie Karate Kid, or the boost to medical culture that the pandemic that's hitting us is giving.
gentlemen, ladies and gentlemen, is the major event that is revolutionizing economic culture from the ground up. And each one of you is a part of it. And each one of you will be able, one day, to proudly say "f**k money, that time we were the protagonists".
Be honest: who else would have had such an opportunity to use money as a tool against the powerful market manipulators without GME?
This is why what is happening is not a meme anymore. The world will be different afterwards.
The GME Affair is changing the world's financial culture forever. No more financial ignorance, no more "under the mattress" investments. No more underhanded economic power plays.
I am not native English speaker, and in my country "gentlemen" is an ironic way to say "my dears" without any gender reference. M... keep reading on reddit ➡
