Preparing for the wedding for a year long engagement for me. The buildup, the photoshoots, the wedding trousseau, the minute planning, the personalised invites, save the date shoots, and then it was suddenly all over. I felt like my life had all ended and marriage did not feel like as much fun as the build up to that felt. I had planned every single detail of my wedding but I was not able to decide the way my marriage would go. My husband wanted to relax after the wedding and I felt like I had had an emotional crash.

My wedding day had become like my sole life goal. And after the wedding, I felt like I had no motivation in life. I had lost a lot of weight for my wedding and with the post wedding gloom, it all started to come back making me feel even more vulnerable. I did not know how to pick myself back up.

I had planned the whole wedding with my partner. But I suddenly feel disconnected with him after the wedding. He went back to his work, family and friends and I found the distance between us increasing. He was not just mine any longer. That was when depression hit. That’s when I met a psychologist who helped me through the tough phase. My marriage would have failed had she not helped me. I was extremely vulnerable.

I was never the center of attention in my life but the whole wedding experience changed it for me. I was made to feel like a princess by my family and my husband and his family gave me so much importance. But after the wedding, the attention suddenly started to fizzle. And it was tough for me to adjust. I didn’t know what was wrong with me. I selfishly wanted all the attention back to myself.

I missed my family terribly after the wedding and despised seeing my husband settle conveniently in his routine with his family. My whole world had changed and his was just the same – in fact he now even had me right next to him. I started to despise him so much that we started to have endless fights. I used to have long spells of crying and felt miserable. I wanted to run away from my life and go back to living with my parents. It was a tough task to settle in the new life.
