And it needs you need to find something new to spend your time to do. Yeah. And also the socialization aspect of it. Yeah. Most people as they work at a company their best friends their closest friends developed from work. It's the guy they have they have lunch with everyday that the group of guys they have lunch with whatever you do that. You have the commonality of theme of something in common. You're all working at this company. Accomplishing something you can either. It's either the the something in common where you gripe about the boss, or you whatever you have in common that that you do. And what happens when people retire is that set of friends it gets cut off it changes. You may think will you know, me and Joe Jim and this group were against a friends, even though I'm retired. And they're still working, and you do stay friends nothing happened. But the things you have in common tend to fade and that friendship tends to weaken overtime just from oh spending time together. Also, you may get together and go to lunch with them. And they're still talking about everything that happened that day at the office in also.

But for some most of it was to pay our current bills into set aside money to pay for our future bills meeting our future bills of retirement. And so you've worked and worked and you've accomplished that at once you've accomplished that. At age sixty five or whatever it is. And you retire then in many ways people feel like I have nothing left to accomplish accomplishment or over. Now, I'm going to have the the best yard in the neighborhood. My grass will be greener.
