continued from part 2.

Not planning old age can be tragic.
Old age could be very lonely and agonising for men who did not plan for it.

May you not become a liability on your children in your old age.
May your children not wish you an early death when they can’t manage you again in your old age.

An old age without penny in your pocket is a slow, agonising death sentence

Be warned …!

There are three categories of people you cannot do without as we are growing older. They’re;
1. your family,
2. people in your place of worship and
3. childhood friends, who include your Old School mates.

Loneliness  and Friendship

Friends, take it or leave it, at 60 and above, loneliness kills because the children you are working hard for now will go their way to raise their own immediate families and pursue their own destinies, just as you did sometime ago. At this time, it’s these people in the 3- categories that take away loneliness and keep your company.

At 50 years and above, you have 10 to 15 years of active working life.

Respect friendship and value relationship.
