Five tips for getting over your return from a trip

1. Look for a meaning
Whether it is wanted or forced, your return is an inevitable fact. Rare are those who go from a trip to trip without ever returning to the “departure” box, home or prison…
What is the reason for your return?
What importance do you give to this reason? The weight it represents for you plays a crucial role in your vision of the comeback.
A person thrilled with their road trip but also thrilled to have found the job of their dreams, even if it is in their hometown, may have less difficulty getting through this return. She will be motivated by the cause (or purpose) of her recovery. She will find meaning in this new dynamic.
2. Create momentum
Shape a new dynamic in your image!
Be creative in this step! I cannot believe that you have traveled alone, been around the World, with all the unforeseen and sometimes hassles that this entails, without having a great dose of courage, ingenuity, resourcefulness, madness!
Prioritize your needs!
Do you need sincere and enriching relationships, which one often finds when traveling? Identify people you already know who can meet this need.
Treat yourself! Anything that gives you energy multiplies it!
Minimize the aspects that eat up your energy, or even eliminate them!
Are you tired of being surrounded by superficial people who don’t have the same interests? No one is forcing you to listen to X whine for hours on end on your shoulder or spit Y on their coworker’s back. We haven’t traveled to the other side of the World to come back and start the same life over again, without learning anything about ourselves and therefore doing as before, have we?
Identify the barriers that limit you!
I want to tell you that it took me a good dose of will, clarity and courage to go and raise these at their source! What causes us not to allow ourselves to realize our dreams, desires, and ambitions when we return home? Why don’t we believe in our projects? That we are hiding behind a role, a mask? By dint of traveling, do you travel or do you run away from something? The answers are sometimes hard to take … they are all the more powerful afterward. Personal development workshops have helped me a lot.
3. Reconnect with the World
Often, what we love when traveling are meeting strangers! The cultures, the visions, the language, the food, the discussions, everything is so different and enriches us, opens our minds! We are thirsty to learn from the other, from this stranger, again and again! Good news! The unknown is everywhere!
Why, when abroad, when strangers talk to us, do we find it cool, and as soon as we get home, do we curl up in our shells?
Otherwise, they’re still social networks;) Groups of travelers, ex-travelers, dreamers, all of your interests have a Facebook group, trust me! We know how to use them so well, so let’s take advantage of their advantages to bring us together, for real.
4. Develop your passions
Our passions define us. They tell who we are, what makes us vibrate, what we can share with the whole World, reveal our most authentic part.
Are you traveling, a passion?
Like many, I put it in the “passion” category. However, traveling is so much. Almost all of us have a way of traveling that does not ou is clean. I have met travelers who have driven more miles than I have and yet, by my worth of the trip, haven’t caught the flame of what I call “travel”. What does “travel” mean to you? Come on, in three words? Then, in one, if you can get it.
This word must resonate in you like the sound of a bell, like the first ray of sunshine which strikes the treetops, like the kiss of your lover who tickles your insides. Then?
I am sure that this word, this aspect that moves you, sets you in motion, gives you energy, and that beyond the journey, you can use it elsewhere, find it elsewhere, perhaps create it. ! For that, you will have to get out of your comfort zone, once again. But that, as a seasoned traveler, I trust you, it’s not going to be too difficult.
5. Be patient
Let us be indulgent with ourselves and those around us. Let us leave time to time. Finally, like for yet another trip, you have to land and acclimatize, rediscover culture and habits. Little by little, create around you the life you always wanted to have. I know for a fact that the meaning I give to my life remains the same, here or elsewhere.
No miracle recipe, just sincere sharing of experiences:
Maybe it won’t work that way for everyone. Maybe you are in this time of acute turbulence, where you want to be left alone, to be told that the only one The solution is to go, that the travelers who have managed to put down their suitcases are only deserters who have lost all notion of freedom, and that’s ok! I’ve been there too …
