because the market's not complicated.
it's uncertain, but at the end of the day you have in your hands (or account, rather) the effects of what you'd sown. so you sold on the low. that's what you have. so you got out early. that's what you have.
with people, sometimes you do all the right things and it still doesn't work anyway. sometimes you're the most beautiful, wonderful girl i know, and you've never been truly kissed. no one deserved someone more than her. but that doesn't matter because that's not how it works. it is completely arbitrary.
what's more? the market's not selfish, and i never, ever lost respect for it.
so that's why. because if i had any sense at all, i'd grow up, give thanks, and find something to preserve. i have no use for anything useless.
