Feeling productive: If you re retired you still need to feel like you are a productive member of society and giving back in some way. If you have special skills, perhaps volunteering you time and skills is a good way to accomplish that. Volunteering is a great way to help and for you to feel good about yourself.

Self-esteem: Self-confidence is closely tied to self esteem. A person with high self-esteem recognizes and trusts her worth as a human being. A self-confident person feels good about his inherent value and is willing to take risks and set achievable goals. Self-confidence is not always absolute. It can be relative to the situation or task at hand. So find what you value now and set goals about achieving this.
Dr. Arthur Ciaramicoli

Self Esteem: Many seniors and retired individuals lose the meaning they had in life if they don;t remain socially connected. Find ways to give to others as giving provides meaning and consistent self esteem. Best.
