HUNT VALLEY, Md. ( TheStreet) -- Many people who work in the same career for decades invest their identity in it. That makes it difficult to retire because, in their minds, losing the job makes them nothing.And that's why when preparing for retirement it is important that you do so not only financially, but psychologically. Retirement sounds like a great reward after many years of work, but it is one of the most stressful times in a person's life (a list that includes graduating from college, getting married, having a first child and the first marriage of a child). This is logical, as we are all creatures of habit. Retiring after working for 30-plus years can be very scary.
