“Those who love deeply never grow old. They may die of old age, but they die young” – Dorothy Confield Fisher
Research shows that people who have fulfilling relationships with others live long and happy lives. Since feeling a part of something is vital during retirement, it is ideal to interact with people to build a network from various sources.

Often when people retire, they do not interact with people as often as they should, and, as such, they start to feel disconnected and despondent. Never downplay the importance of feeling connected. As a retiree you have to replace the sense of community that work provided, and generally speaking, that community consists of your work friends who are actually acquaintances that you spend a lot of time with. Retirement however is your opportunity to change that; you can now start to develop a network of meaningful relationships from various sources, and you will have the time to do it.

“Friendship with oneself is all important because without it one cannot be friends with anyone else.” Eleanor Roosevelt

Making space in your life for you is important, and daily solitude should be your goal if you want to achieve self-understanding and self-acceptance. Once you establish a meaningful relationship with yourself, you are able to build strong, healthy and lasting relationships with others.

Your wealth lies in your relationships with others – so make your retirement a rich one by creating a wealth of relationships in your life.
