Whenever I've been on a good holiday, I always get the post holiday blues. No big deal, really. Natural to be sad it's over and back to the grind.
But I got back from the best and longest vacation me and my fiancee have been on together and when we arrived back home I was just in pieces and really felt like I had never felt as low. Like nothing really bothers me normally and I feel like I have the ability to shrug off pretty much anything but I had a few cries yesterday. I know it passes and today I actually feel a bit better (although I could probably still cry now if I wanted).
One thing that has helped is that I've Googled post vacation blues and found lots of posts from people describing exactly what I'm going through and having the exact same thoughts. It is good to know that I'm not alone in having what feel like crazy thoughts. And bottom line, I know it passes.
I guess my question is this: has anyone got any advice as to how to lessen the impact in future? Because right now I feel like I'm not even sure I could take going through the come down again. I really find it unbearable. The low is far lower than how high the high is And it's so silly. I am blessed to have opportunities to go on amazing holidays. I just hate how difficult I find coping with when they end, even though I know it's temporary. I am scared it is getting to a point where worrying about
it may spoil future holidays for me.
I apologise to anyone offended by me posting this on here...a lot of people on here have actual problems. Holidays blues seems vertically trivial compared to other people's problems, I know.
