As I write this, I’m still trying to comprehend the enormity of my mistake.
I recently made the mistake of gambling during the Chinese New Year festivities. I was feeling lucky, so I thought I’d take a chance and try my luck and play big with my relatives.
Little did I know, it was a decision that would cost me dearly. I ended up losing an enormous amount of money. It was so bad that I had to sell my Rolex watch to cover the debt.
At first, I felt embarrassed and ashamed. I had been so successful in my business and was used to having money to spend. This was the first time I had ever been in a situation like this. I had been so careless, so foolish, and I felt like a fool for my mistake.
But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that this wasn’t the end of the world.
Sure, I had lost a lot of money, but I was still alive and I still had my health. I decided to accept what had happened and move on.
In my family, it’s different, its not just $2 per hand black jack. It’s $200 – 500 a hand.
The first thing I did was to come up with a plan. I knew that I wouldn’t be able to pay off my debt with my Rolex, so I decided to sell it and use the money to pay off my debt. This meant that I wouldn’t have any money until I had paid off my debt, but I was determined to make it work.
I sold the watch and used the money to pay off my debt. I was relieved to have it off my back, but I was also a little bit sad to be without my watch. It had been a part of me for so long, and I felt like I was saying goodbye to an old friend.
After paying off my debt, I was still without cash. I will have to make some changes in my lifestyle to make it through the next few months. I had to cut back on my spending, and I had to be smart about how I used the money I had left.
Never ever gamble in my life again.
