Not Sure Just How to Do That.

At work I supervised some 12 people and yet, I don't want to be the kind of guy that follows people around, looking over their shoulder.  They come to me for my opinion and that's a great feeling, to be needed.  I have a lot of experience but in the last 3 years on my job it seems that most of the staff want to keep the status quo.  They don't want to even talk about any changes.  In which case, all my experience and knowledge aren't worth anything.

Thanks. At least this free time allows me to communicate with friends I've made on EP.

Not true. Maybe not in a workplace setting, but I'm sure there are plenty of friends here to make you feel needed, old friend.

I finally retired. Now, I don't have the pressures nor the feeling of being needed.

Don't I know. At work all the staff are complaining about how much work our office has, yet noone wants to say anything to the superviser. I asked a question in the department meeting and the supv instructed me to be quiet. We are over worked, under paid, and stressed out but they have upper admin thinking we are all together. I was just demoted into this position due to loss of a grant, but when they say the grass isn't greener on the other side, please believe it. At least I don't have a director that intentionally lies on you now. Look for the sliver of a silver lining. That's the only thing I have to look for each day or I'd end this miserable life.
