Retired: Lost in myself
by Lost and Scared
I retired 2 years ago. I was a teacher for 27 years for children with special needs. I wake up every morning and all I think about was the job I left.
I watch my children get ready for work and I start having regrets about retiring even though I found a part time job in a preschool.
My children told me that my workplace was my identity and that's why I am feeling so lost and confused about being retired.
I can't get that old job out of my mind. Nothing makes me happy anymore . I don't know how to overcome this, it is making me sick.
I want to be happy but don't know how to.
Can anyone help me?
