On the subject of personal relationships, things really change when you retire!
Work provided a social network of people with a common interest.
For some, it was their predominant network next to their immediate family.
When you retire, that work-related social network is gone and often leaves a big hole in your life
in terms of sharing ideas and feeling a sense of belonging. The solution? Get out of the house!
Volunteer, develop hobbies that will enable you to make new friends based on that common interest,
or join a community group or gym – there are lots of ways to become part of a new social circle.
