Basically I enjoyed my position as a part time elementary school teacher until our beloved principal was moved to another school. Our new, and younger, principal is a micromanager who holds everyone’s feet to the fire.
After my mother’s death and receipt of my inheritance, I decided I was done. As a teacher, we need to submit our retirement intent by Feb 2 for the next school year. Who knows how they’ll feel 7 months later at the start of a new year?
Anyways I retired, and rescinded it, then retired again. I feel totally out of control not knowing what I am doing. The angst is worse than the anxiety when working.
To compound things, if I had worked another year, my pension would be larger. I feel like I am throwing money away. Can anyone offer suggestions on how to find peace of mind regarding the money?
I can’t sleep with this anxiety and it’s only March. I’m still working until June.
