Retired Men: The real nature of retirement
Retirement from my perspective.
My best friend is me.
Don't look beyond that.
Your kids love you but they don't want to understand you... they have their own lives.
Your son or daughter in law, tolerate you or they are openly hostile.... either way you will never be accepted, so it best to not even try to be a friend, mentor, or anything to them.
Your spouse, if you are a man... is done with you. It was easier for her when you went to work every day and went out with your friends all weekend.
Retirement is time for YOU. Don't look for "you" in anyone else, they will NOT be there for you.. the moment something is less than their perfect vision of retirement.
SO.... men out thee... step up and don't ask you wife for anything.... she is DONE with that S**T for so many years.
Learn to be your own best and only friend you will have from now on. THis is the best and most speedy way to your personal happiness.
