Life Changes – How to handle Retirement_Question

Posted on Sunday, December 6th, 2015 at 7:29 pm.

Dr. Beth, I just turned 66 and finally decided to retire from my job.  I have worked all my adult life and I’m really worried about retiring.  I have been in manufacturing and held a variety of positions over the years, finally getting into management.  While my job was stressful, I made good money and also really liked the challenges.  I have met all my guy friends through work. Most of them are a little younger than me so they will still be working after I leave. I’m afraid I’m not going to know who I am since work has been almost my whole identity for several decades and I am worried that I am going to be bored and lonely. Any tips of managing this change?
