Retired - It's not all what it's made out to be...
I waited my whole life to get to this point, I dreamed about it, I visualized the great times to be retired, I would truly enjoy my time and space without work.
You know what, It's hell.
Yes, that's right, it's not all a bed of roses.
I feel depressed, lonely, anxious every day and not to mention constantly thinking negative thoughts throughout the days. This is horrible.
At the age of 56, you would think it would be o.k., NO! No!, not true.
If anyone that is going through an uneasy retirement please say something on line.
Words of encouragement would help! Wendy here:
Hello! I just retired on Friday and I pray I don't fall into whatever has taken you down. Right now, I'm happy -- but it's too soon to tell.
I do have a Retirement Transition Group, emails from folks who akso have anxiety on retirement... some are recently retired, some aren't yet retired, all thinking about their options. Look under Email Groups to the left - or contact me at the bottom left.... and I will get you into the group. I think we can help you evaluate the blessings you do have!
