Fear that I failed
First, my retirement will start January 1, 2018. I'm happy and am trying to focus on the freedom and possibilities that retirement will bring.
I've worked for the same place for over 20 years and yet I'm worried about leaving a negative impression - only because the last several years have been difficult in the sense of personality issues (I'm perfect of course ;o). Most of the time there was fine - I am/was a good employee, like to work but I'm with a different group - have tried to better the situation to no avail. IN the big picture, I believe that it won't matter after December 31 (at least to me).
So while I'm anxious, I do believe that once I give notice in one week, I will feel a great deal of relief. I'm fortunate that I am 65 and am able to work part-time to supplement SS and pension. I am truly looking forward to a fresh look at life. All in all, my retirement anxiety is temporary.
Good luck to all contemplating this big change. Freedom!
