Life Changes – How to handle retirement_Question
Posted on Tuesday, July 28th, 2015 at 7:37 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?
