I am preparing to retire in a year, and while I have been blessed with many friends, a loving husband and fulfilling work, I worry about isolation and loneliness. I have worked for nearly 40 years–and have always found great meaning in helping others. I am feeling afraid that I won’t find anything else and that my days will be empty and long. Letting go is hard and trusting the process is even harder. Thank you all for your comments today.
