Now you’re home (finally!!) with your beloved. Your new life together has begun!! This was what the whole thing was about!! And … you’re feeling let down. A little depressed, even. What gives??
What gives is normal. Just think about all those previous big events in your life: Christmases, graduations. A lot of build-up, then the big event , and then — pfft! — it’s all over. Just like that. It’s only natural to feel just a little deflated. After riding the roller coaster of anticipation, planning, nerves and excitement, the regular flow of a normal day can seem a little lacking.
Don’t sweat it. It doesn’t mean you made the wrong decision! It’s nothing about second thoughts. It doesn’t mean you’re not happy. You’re just coming down off a months’-long adrenaline rush. That takes some doing! Give yourselves a little time to gear down to normal life, and soon you will be feeling normal — and happy! — again.
