It's less painful if you've committed to development targets instead of monetary ones.
The price now doesn't matter at all if you know that you aren't selling your first bag until 12 months after the launch of real SAFEcoins.
If you ever feel stressed by it just look back at BTC charts and imagine yourself as a big holder back when it was yoyo-ing from cents to the $1-$3 range. Folks who held 50k BTC back then must have found it pretty stressful seeing their notional wealth jumping to 6 figures and losing it again in days.
I'm not saying MAID is certain to succeed and follow BTC's footsteps, but whatever boat you're on will have its stresses. Investors get holding fatigue and it wears the nerves for most people to see huge changes in their situation over short periods of time.
All this volatility is fairly meaningless though. BTC could have failed or succeeded and none of that price 'noise' from the early days was really relevant to what makes it a success or a failure.
I've resigned myself to this bet and to waiting for utility and real value, not speculation. I still enjoy watching it go up and it still hurts a little to see it go down, but it is easier to swallow knowing that it doesn't matter. People's emotions and sentiment are meaningless. The market is naive and ill-informed. Meh, nowt else to do but shrug it off. It's a great time to buy if you're liquid enough, otherwise it's a time for distractions and focusing on other things I reckon
