Bear market lesson. Put in stop losses.

35 year old investor who only really knows the bull market. I had a lot of growth stocks and didn't consider how quickly my portfolio could drop. Up $30k to negative today, and easily could have locked in gains in many positions. Obviously not the end of the world, but a good lesson for others. I'm a buy / hold investor who obviously doesn't keep up well with the market. Transitioning to index funds and taking this as a lesson.
