It’s been nearly a week since I returned home from Guatemala, and I’m still in recovery.
The other day, I mentioned that I might have a case of post mission trip depression. A good friend said that was a real thing. I’m not sure if I’m all together depressed, but I’m definitely dealing with some feelings I don’t normally have. My stomach has been a little unsettled that past few days which could be a result of a couple of meals I tried toward the end of my visit – namely the street side tacos from San Raymundo or the meal I enjoyed at the house dedication. Beyond that, I’ve missed the team we spent the week with in Guatemala. I’ve also been pondering the next moves in building more homes for widows. And I’m feeling the realities of being thrust back into a high pressure, fast paced world after being in a low pressure, slower paced Guatemala. I’m confident things will improve in the coming days, but these feelings got me thinking that I’m probably not alone.
Today, I want to give you some advice on how to overcome a case of post mission trip depression. (And by the way, I’m writing this for myself too.)
I’m already feeling a little bit better just thinking about taking these actions.
I lift up my eyes to the mountains—where does my help come from? My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth. Psalm 121:1-2
