Post Travel Depression

I just came from my solo trip to Vietnam. Had the time of my life, I did whatever I wanted no anxiety or depression.

I come back home and I feel more depressed and lonely than I've ever felt at home.

Anyone else experienced this before. How do you deal with it?

I really dont see a way to fix this other than just moving to SEA

    My coping mechanism is to plan the next trip right away. I end up feeling less sad and more excited about what I'm gonna do on the next trip. Have travel constantly on your mind.

      The positive is I was contemplating suicide if I didnt enjoy the trip.

      I ended up having the time of my life, which only makes me wonder why I am so depressed at home

        Because you have nothing to live for. Your life is so hollow you travel in order to give it purpose.

          That sounds like a cultural problem, referring to whatever country where OP lives, that cannot even compete with fricking Vietnam

              I guess that depends on whether the other guy gives the same effort in his home country as he did in Vietnam. If he gave a similar effort with shittier results, then it's most definitely a cultural problem then.

    Become socially aggressive in your asocial western country. Mumble to yourself and talk shit to others. Embody the spirit of a vietnamese street tout and offer snooty young girls your services. Get some drugs and become like a Nigerian on Sukhumvit saying whats up bro to everyone you walk past. Never give up.

    I'm anxious and depressed as frick back home and travel to escape but problems tend to follow me. I just like being a long way from home so I can bury my head in the sand for a while. Coming home to a shit broke life is no fun, the only way is to book another trip to lok forward to asap. Problem is as you get older, travelling loses its excitement and you develop anhedonia so it just becomes a pretty empty and futile experience

            I think it's because older men are more intimidating. Also older men (35+) should have families, it's kinda weird if they don't

      In Letters from a Stoic by Seneca:
      “Socrates made the same remark to one who complained; he said: “Why do you wonder that traveling does not help you, seeing that you always take yourself with you? The reason which set you wandering is ever at your heels.” ... "Do you ask why such flight does not help you? It is because you flee along with yourself. You must lay aside the burdens of the mind; until you do this, no place will satisfy you.”

    I used to travel with family and came back feeling depressed most times. We all have different needs that need to be fulfilled.

    Depression is a sadness, the opposite of sadness is joy. There must be some kind sadness around your home. If you can support the focus to some kind of contentment like a goal, desire, need. Then slowly but surely it'll change. But ultimately you must simply focus on your self, as what is external can only be influenced. Your thoughts can be controlled and influenced so where should you put most effort?

    To move the mountain of emotions, start by taking a stone to the place in which you wish your emotions to be.

    I'd start with little things to be grateful for. day in day out see for yourself the difference of acknowledging the little things in our daily life.

    this is only my take on the mental emotional aspect of depression as i have suffered a physical aspect as well.

    Peterson helped me cement the importance of routines.

        I think this is common, I have a Vietnamese gf and she wants me to get fatter too. Picrel is a good demonstration of Vietnamese mindset imo. I think in the west most people who see pics like this see a guy who's gotten apathetic and lazy, and a woman who's resorted to surgery because she's insecure/immature, or perhaps attempting to get the attention of new men.

        But on Vietnamese social media this pic was spread around as a success story. Women take it as a point of pride that their partner looks like that because it shows they treat their husband well, whilst the surgery is seen as good that the woman still tries to stay beautiful for her husband.

                English teachers make around $2000 a month which is A LOT more than a local salary. You can save up 500$ a month easily if you don't blow it all on alcohol and girls.
                Vietnam women are not easier. Most that speak English are either prostitutes or come from rich families.
                Both of them have the perception that all foreigners are rich and can afford a new chanel bag every month. They don't seem to know a middle ground between a 10k a year salary and a 100k a year one

                Not true at all bro. Current perception white people are broke begpackers or sexpat ESL teachers. Too many cases of broke white begpackers being shared on Facebook.

                Sure, a white living in Thao Dien is rich but not when he's slumming it as some low paid English teacher.

                Salary has also risen in Vietnam. Middle managers can make $1.5K if she works for an international company. Senior programmers can make $2K, $3K in Saigon.

      It’s safe, cheap, warm, the customer service is top notch, drugs are readily available, prostitution is de facto legal in a myriad of ways that cater to any taste, food is amazing.

      SEA is much safer and friendlier than Latin America.
      SEA is much warmer and cheaper than Europe.
      Downside is the lack of neat, aesthetic town centers like most cities built by Europeans have, whether in Europe or the Americas. At least in PH, the cities are just so fricking ugly and devoid of any aesthetic consideration.
      Traveling to London or Brussels in winter, that's a hard nope. I'd only travel to Europe in summer, but it can be challenging to leave my job when the workload peaks, especially when my boss refuses to hire additional help because "you do your job so well".

      I agree about the customer service being among the best anywhere in the world. Drugs and prostitution, that's primarily in the shithole degeneracy zones. They are the worst for scamming, hustling and thieving as well. Fortunately, such areas are a very small portion of Southeast Asia.

      I just came from my solo trip to Vietnam. Had the time of my life, I did whatever I wanted no anxiety or depression.

      Anyone else experienced this before. How do you deal with it?

      I really dont see a way to fix this other than just moving to SEA

      It sounds like you had a vacation. A time-limited escape from drudgery with plenty of money to spend, you'd be hard pressed not to have the time of your life on vacation. Living in a foreign country - or traveling as a lifestyle - is a whole different ball game. Your presence and life soon becomes normalized, and your daily routine starts looking a lot like the ordinary people around you, apart from having a lot more free time than they do.

        Mostly when it comes to work. I got lucky and landed a fairly cushy work from home webdev job here. In Vietnam I'd presumably have to work significantly harder for longer hours for a lot less pay, less annual leave, sick pay etc. If I didn't like it I'd have to start over again in the UK and I don't think I'd get so lucky next time.

        Before anyone says "just start a business" or "just be a digital nomad", I don't really have what it takes to do that, especially when I still don't even know the basics of the language yet.

          Whatever you do, please just don't say digital nomad. Every time I read this, I cringe so hard I feel it in my balls.

          So you work remote in Vietnam and enjoy the good life?

          I'm 43 and I agree. Life is better here. The first world and the people in it suck.

          Can you still get girls in their 20s?

          going to vietnam solo made me realize a lot when i was 23. Went from an anxious virgin to a slayer, and I ended up just staying out here and making it work. Go remote, and live like a king. It's been 5 years and I couldn't be happier or even imagine going back home.

          Unfortunently for me solo travel and constantly not making friends just kinda makes me fall apart.

          And I can't get a wife in the west because at 37 it's single ladiesd 10 years younger than me which I can't attract, or single mums. What's the point. I wanna be a dad not a step-dad. Also in the west post 30 no one is a healthy weight.

            Can, have, but unironically prefer not to. I like women closer to my own age.

              I prefer women that can birth healthy children. So 18-22.

                I respect the vast array of taste in women. I don't want kids though so I don't care.

    Why don't you stay in America and find a wife?

    every time you freaks inquire about this, you're too lazy to type out a complete sentence. It really speaks to your low value despite being white.

    Yep. Once I got back home I was immediately thinking how do I get back. I moved to a cheaper city, rented a motel room (no lease + can pay rent with travel rewards card) and started delivering pizza and working general labor. I work about 55 hrs a week, a lot, but nothing insane. I got back from Asia after four months in July. I'll be back in a month. When there's a will, there's a way!

      Godspeed buddy. I came to Thailand after my dog died earlier in the year because I was so sad I couldn't stay in my apartment anymore without him, and I'd been working a disposable temporary job anyway. The original idea was to just hang out for two months while I kept looking for jobs in the US but after I got here I knew right away I didn't want to go back home (because frick that, obviously) so I cancelled my return ticket, enrolled in a CELTA program, and now I'm teaching in Vietnam with no plans to leave. Where there is a will there is indeed a way.

      Inspiring story, I've only seen Japan and Vietnam but Thailand sounds like a pretty nice mix between them both. I also work a temporary disposable job. How did you get use to teaching, was it in tense?

      Hoi Ann is beautiful but gets boring outside the heritage areas.

      This is smart I also try to live like a pauper here.

    Post travel depression is normal. You just had an awesome adventure, tasted real freedom, experienced an unbeatable natural high... Then had it all ripped away from you upon returning to joyless wage slavery. It happened to me as well when I returned from South America, both times.

    >How do you deal with it
    Accept that what goes up, must come down. Be grateful you got to travel, most never leave their comfort zone.

    >Just move to SEA
    I think you've solved your own problem lol
