I'm not ready to get rich

I know this might sound like a very good "problem" to have, but I think most people here are pretty smart and will get it. Some of you will even be in a similar situation soon if not already. Long story short, I feel like I'm not ready to get rich. My crypto portfolio is now around $400K and it seems sort of inevitable that it will reach millions, if not tens of millions, in the coming years. On one hand I'm happy about it, of course. The chance to never have to work for money again, focus 100% on creative pursuits, etc. On the other hand I'm scared it will be sort of like a lottery win and I will do something stupid. I think my life might become too good for some friends and we'll grow apart / not have much in common anymore. You know, the average struggle of time, money that 90% of the world has. Also, I'd love to spread knowledge about Bitcoin with my friends and family, but I don't know if it's wise to let them know I'm hugely invested. Am I getting paranoid? Has anyone else experienced something similar?
