Looking Back One Year Later
by Canadian Retiree
Well I’m retired now almost one year to the day. I remember last September 11 when I picked up the phone and told the HR lady I was retiring. I may as well used the word “quit” because it feels more like I quit instead of retiring It’s been a rough year.
I still have mixed feelings about the whole retirement thing but I’m doing better. My anxiety is gone and my depression is lifting. Im able to move forward better. I’ll always miss my job and friends because they were like family.
At least my husband and I are getting along better and used to being around each other more. Watercolour art lessons are helping.
All I can do is hang in there.
