This is totally correct. In 2013/2014 I played around with ripple WCG/Fidor/Trading/Meetups/Set up my own coin etc etc. The more I got involved the more I got frustrated with certain things, like for instance the strategy of Ripplelabs, so after the closing of the XRPtalk-forum I just forgot about Ripple for a while and focused on other things in my life.
Than in the beginning of this year I sort of picked up where I left... In those 2 to 3 years the price of almost all the coins I have/had are up and I have a fresh outlook on things. So unless you are a daytrader, take @Ripple-Stiltskin 's advice and take a break and move on or just HODL if you can afford it.
If you want to trade don't get to involved emotionally, because most things that happen in the market are out of your control (unless you are a whale of course).
