Like everything else retirement has a learning curve. Most men get their identity from their ability to provide, protect their family. And retirement leaves us feeling unneeded and unfulfilled.
A few men can replace the loss of working with hobbies and travel or other selfish endeavors. But you probably will not be able to do that.
If you feel useless after you retire and you have enough income to live comfortably in retirement without a side job. I’d suggest volunteering at something you might do to make others lives better, and by so doing find a new reason to feel needed, and fulfilled.
Visit shut ins, nursing homes, hospitals, elderly folks in your church, Big brother, volunteer at the local Y, at a school reading program. Think about it And pray, and God will lead you to what he would have you do.
