I've been a long time 'mostly' successful trader, started more than 20 years ago (some years off in between). Some years were very successful years and over time I've grown and adapted to stay in the game. I used to have a lot of trading 'courage' and never let the butterflies and fears get to me. However in the past number of years I've gone thru some very difficult personal experiences that tweaked me and practically made me afraid of fear. I'm no longer fearless. Butterflies get to me now, which used to be simply an awesome sign of a good trade. I no longer have the strength to overcome the butterflies and have in general become afraid of taking risks. Even positions I know are good but temporarily ticking away from me are too tough to hold. For the most part I have a very good system, but to survive, I need to learn to overcome fear again so that I can actually stick with my system, something that used to come naturally. I've tried trading much smaller, but that hasn't worked. I've still had to reverse the smallest trades when they tick against me. Overall, I'm honestly ashamed and embarrassed of the weak ways I've been trading. Any suggestions to help get over the inability to sit with fear?
