If this is your first >50% dip and you still managed HODLed, then congrats and welcome to the diamond hands club!
This is especially for all the newcomers to crypto during this cycle. The FUDs didn't get to you and you stood strong! It has been really hard on me too as I am one of the newcomers too! I have been in this crypto space for not too long and after I initially invested the price started to dip. However, as I am in for the long run, I did not let those FUDs sway me into paper-handing my cryptos. Although as of now my portfolio is still pretty much in red, I strongly believe in the utility of the crypts that I purchased.
If you DYOR, you would be more confident with your purchases and less likely to paper-hand them. Thus, I also believe it is crucial to do all the research needed before buying into different cryptos. Either way, give yourself a pad on the back!
