Start running and not stop....
My mom used to say this to me growing up. She would say, " Do you ever feel like running and never stopping, never coming back?" She suffered from depression and so do I.
Why did I think retiring at 60 was such a great idea?
I wanted to be available for my daughter and my grandsons. So I retired sold my house and moved north. I left work friends, social friends and church friends and now find myself completely alone a lot! (Divorced)
I do have a dog but he just stares at me at times like he is saying, "are we ever going to get out of this house?"
I have a retirement income and now collect my SSA. It pays the bills but extra for fun money, vacation, eating out! Ha! Who wants to eat alone anyway.
I've gotten a library card😀 and just started going to a new church in hopes of meeting people. I'm an introvert so it is hard. I am not attractive according to world standards and don't have anyone who will give a second look. So the sadness gets deep at times.
I have tried part time jobs that did not work out. But plan on looking for another. I am good when I am surrounded by my daughter, son-in-law and grandsons but try not to consume all their time because that would just not be healthy for their marriage. Wow! Had no idea that retirement had the same process as mourning a death but it does.
