I in a previous life was very successful, and then 2008 came, and basically ended my career in finance. Since that time, I have been struggling. To make matters worse, this happened in a very crucial age range, when starting over is next to impossible based on what society implies with respect to your usefulness. I am physically and mentally tired, and can honestly say that I have not had one break since 2008, and im not wondering what's the use and why not just give up now. If there is anyone who can help me and offer any help as to why I am still relevant please let me know. My kids are basically out of the house now, and they do not need me anymore, what is the use.
