Cannot trade items due to recently changed password

Hello, I'm CrazyKilla

I have two accounts, one i use everyday and another i don't really use, both have portal 2 so i thought i'd play portal 2, get all the cards and trade them into one account, but i forgot the password to my account, so i said i forgot it and i changed it, it claimed that i must wait 5 days until i can trade because i just recently changed the password, i thought thats resonable and i waited, FOR TWO WEEKS...
Now it just displays
'You have logged in from a new device. In order to protect the items in your inventory, you will be unable to trade from this device for 0 days.
You recently forgot and then reset your Steam account's password. You will not be able to trade until about five days after the most recent password reset.'

It has been two weeks since i changed my password, what is wrong with steam?!

If you reset your password, you will be restricted from trading for 5 days. If your account has not had any activity for more than 2 months, you will be restricted from trading for 30 days. We do this to help protect users who lose access to their email account. Note that this does not affect password changes, only password resets.

Alright, thankyou.
Why can't steam make accounts so secure that ONLY you can get into them and there would be no need to be treated like a hijacker.

That's how it works actually. Only YOU can access your account.
