The best kept secret in the wedding process is the post wedding blues.
Once we got back from the honeymoon, I was completely in the dumps. I wasn’t ready to accept the wedding was over, not because I wasn’t thrilled to be married, but that planning the wedding had consumed my entire life. I always had a running to-do-list of things needing my attention. There was always something exciting to talk about with family & friends. Afterwards, I didn’t know what to do with myself or with my time. For the first few weeks, I couldn’t shake the feeling of sadness. I didn’t want to go to work or leave the house.
I’m starting to feel my old self returning. It took a big mental effort & time to get back on track by refocusing on myself and on building a new marriage. I have so much respect for everyone who has struggled with this or something similar & found their way through it.
