Internal and external forces have colluded to bring the Honeymoon to an end. This month’s music video finds Kristy deep in the second stage of Culture Shock: Anxiety/Depression.
Every expat experiences the phases of Culture Shock: Honeymoon, Anxiety/Depression, Adjustment, and Acceptance. But everyone moves through them at their own pace, and not always in that order.
It’s not in Kristy’s nature to stay stuck in a rut…but can she pull herself up and out of this phase before it’s too late?
I dedicate this video to my brave friends who struggled with this stage for so long. The video treats the subject lightly but I know the depression is real, the consequences are real. I miss all of you but I know it was your time to go.
