Retirement Fund

A couple weeks ago during the worst market crash, I wanted to see how bad it affected me and my savings. Not sure if it was a good thing or bad thing. But, I had trouble logging into my account. Normally, I don't look online. I just wait for my quarterly earnings statement to arrive in the mail. I always remember the balance in my head for some reason. I was pretty happy with my 2nd Quarter balance. It didn't look that bad to me. Today, I tried once again. I figure that if didn't it fall negative from 2nd Quarter, I'd be in good standing. I know I shouldn't have looked into my 401K. It would only depress me. And that it surely did. My jaw literally dropped and was like F**K! I'm shocked of the significant drop. What a huge difference! I feel like someone robbed me! With the money that I lost I would've spent that and had my dream vacation to Australia!! It would've been a down payment for a brand new SUV! Oh D-D-D-DEAR! A little while after our HR Manager was in our department. I wish she had came sooner to stop me from looking. We asked jokingly if there was anyway for her to adjust our balances in our retirement. She just laughed. She was all, don't be an idiot like me and look. I made that mistake yesterday. I cried out, "It's too late!". She kept emphasizing to think long term. Damnit...How can I now if I was just robbed from at least one year's worth of money I contributed into my retirement plan. My advice to others. Don't be a stupid person like myself and check your balance. You're an f**ktard if you do.
