The holiday season is time for traditions to come swarming back into action. Because for most it doesn’t matter if they continue traditions during the other times of the year but during the holiday season they always want to follow traditions. Like the traditional meal that they cook for the special occasion or the places that they visit during the season and what not.
But most people tend to have a set plan as to how they are going to celebrate and enjoy the upcoming time, because they have done it many times previously. And what comes as the biggest surprise is that most people don’t tire of doing the same thing over and over again every holiday season. It’s almost like the familiar Italian restaurant in Pattaya if the routine is comforting for them.
But things can always turn around
We would have spent our childhood by beachfront hotels most summers, wandering around in our bathing suits and building sand castles. Jumping over the waves would have given us the most exciting feeling away. And we would have followed that tradition up until the time when we moved away from family, whether it was because we started college or left for work or whatever reason it is.
And you end up being the person who misses the monotony of these events whereas you were the one who used to grumble about the same old holiday each and every year. So how did things change around so quickly? Why do we suddenly miss these occasions although what we wanted back then was to get away from them as fast possible?
How we can cope with these feelings
For some us it may be that the tradition itself has died off while for some of us it may be a case where the rest of our family members are still carrying on the tradition while we are the unlucky souls who have to miss. And we end up thinking about the family hotel in Pattaya that they have booked and how much we are missing out on. And sometimes it can lead to serious mental health issues for some people.
So we need to find a way to cope with this sudden feeling of being abandoned. And some ways of getting rid of this feeling is to enjoy the time you have for yourself. Think of it as a way to rediscover yourself. Going out on your own can help, visiting places that you have wanted to fro so long but not finding the time to. There are plenty of ways in which you can cope with such a situation if we put our mind to it.
