You are exactly right. That's how I felt. I used to have dreams back in the day about unobtainable high end equipment. It would be amazing. The equipment would be set up in the woods where I would play when I was a kid. All the dream gear was there on display and it was so vivid. I would wake up in such a good mood. But when I finally had it for some reason it just wasn't what I thought it would be. That's why I kept buying and selling. But none of it made a difference. I just never felt the way I should after finally obtaining my dream system. That's when I knew. I just kept putting it off not knowing what I wanted to do as a hobby anymore. I love the water and have wanted a boat for a long time but with such expensive gear sitting in my house and being in debt from that it just wasn't feasible. So I finally just put two and two together and realized that this hobby wasn't satisfying me anymore. It might just be time to move on. I was worried at first that I might get depressed but really it has been a weight lifted off my shoulders. The more I sell the more I pay off my credit cards. I will almost be debt free after it's all gone. I was actually paying over 900$ a month for this stuff on credit cards. Most was zero interest but the big ones were ending soon. The ones that the promotion had ended on we're going to kill me. It's not that I couldn't afford it. It's just that I didn't want to have to afford it. And when it's all said and done I will just be relieved. It is going to feel good. My wife has been a saint. But has secretly been stressed out over the whole thing because she promised me when we downsized I would get my dream system. And she let me get it. I just had to wake up and realize that the stress that came with it was not worth it. And the fact I was never really satisfied with it really made it a no brainer. But sometimes it takes me a while. Lol
And yes I already know boats are expensive to have. But I am looking to pay about 200$ a month on a FIXED rate loan. That's a far cry from 900$ with the interest going up soon. I was potentially going to be paying over 1,000 a month. That is more than we are paying for our house. WOW!
