The 2 sides of holiday depression

Its fair to say I have been consumed with post holiday depression since about Friday night when we dropped our friends at the airport and uttered a bye through tears and a scratchy throat. And while you may not feel sorry for me for what I am about to write, it is nevertheless, painful. 

Living in Cyprus means we are lucky enough to spend the majority of weekends, all summer long, at the beach, soaking up the sun and enjoying the sea. Even so, after a spending a week relaxing, it still takes time to get back into the swing of real life and brush off the holiday blues. 

The other side of  the depression stems from the goodbyes. One of the sacrifices we make for living in Cyprus is not having our friends around. So come holiday time, its an opportunity to get guests over from England and catch up. But having that "its like nothing ever changed feeling" makes it even harder to say goodbye.

But either you have to get on with it and seek out the positives (we are still on the sunshine island) or pack up and go back to England.

  1. It's cold here! Stay in the sun!

    But really, it's true. It's really hard to go back to responsibilities and obligations when the beach is right there (signed, a Florida girl).

    And don't get me started on goodbyes, I've been known to tear up saying "bye" to people I don't even like!

    Keep seeking out the positives and enjoying the sun, I am officially and thoroughly jealous ;)
