Energy and ambition do fade as we get older. And retirement makes it worse, since there's no motivation to get up and do things. But passion needn't go away. Could you do some kind of volunteer work? Do you have some craft you like to do? We all need to do things that validate us and make us feel useful.

Personally, I am in my early sixties and have no intention of retiring until I am physically or mentally unable to do my job. Retirement would bore me to tears and kill my self-esteem.

My ex-husband was forced to retire last year at 65 and he is now bored and at loose ends and looking for some kind of paid or unpaid volunteer work. He's very handy and is thinking of a part-time job at Home Depot. He's very sociable and the amount of time spent alone is driving him crazy.
