Daily-life interrupted

July 2016 Daily-life interrupted

At beginning of July, I was going to write about subject such as “Loss of Identity” or “Who am I?” Those kinds of things really bothered me after retirement. People in late adulthood (60-85 years) had already experienced many disrupted life events (such as divorce, retirement, illnesslosing a loved one). The main crisis in the Late Adulthood Transition is a person fears that their youthfulness is disappearing, and only an old, fatigued, boring person will remain. 

I always wanted to be “somebody” not “nobody”. I went out places in SF Bay Area often during last few years. It is important how others view me, my feelings of confidence, are dependent on external factors. As a result, I seek reassurance and praise from others to feel OK about myself (Note: I am not a self-centered, however).
 
Just recently, a man sent me a email from my website. I never, never thought to go out with any men. However I did. He made me realize that important to develop my own mind (inner-sense, self-knowledge, & self-affection) I am going to stay calm and check off my bucket list from now on.
