Unwanted Retirement Advice
(Long Island, NY)
I too am suffering from a very difficult adjustment, or buyer's remorse, as another blogger had called it.
I retired primarily b/c of some chronic health issues & am considering applying for disability. I'm finding, however, that everyone I know or meet wants to know what I'm doing with my time, and has advice for what I should be doing now that I'm retired.
Join various groups, travel, volunteer, find another job, etc... If I were able to do these kinds of things, I probably would have chosen to keep working. I don't like discussing my personal situation with others.
What can I say to politely decline their suggestions - I know they mean well.
