Lately I have been feeling very over worked underappreciated, ignored.
I am told that I am trusted and need minimum supervision, which is true, but I also need to feel that I can discuss my work and how I am getting on more so in the last few years. I have voiced this and other issues to my employer as a reason for handing in my notice in but have not handed it in in writing yet. Now, I am feeling more than a little worried about retirement and what it means. I have enjoyed the challenge of my career have filled my days and my head with it, been an active mother doing most things for the family with little and sometimes no external support. Now if I continue on the path of resignation/ retirement I can take my time and do things at home to my own pace and do things I haven't ever had the time to do. I am not sure now whether I should continue overworked and at times stressed or step into the abyss and just try to fill my life with new things. I have never had many girl friends where we live now and as work revolves around mainly a male dominated world not much continuity there. I worry that I won't be able to mix or make new friends that I have become so self sufficient I don't know how to not be that person who copes, who doesn't need other people other than emotionally. I think I have forgotten who I am any advice.
