For a few days I feel, like I fell into a big, dark hole. I always describe the situation like this: I am walking my dog in the forest I live in and I feel this never-ending loneliness. Everything is so silent. I hear every sound much more intense. Birds, the wind in the leafs, the train passing by in the distance. Somehow it feels sad and absolutely lonely. If you want, you can say it is the opposite of what I experience right before and at the event itself. And because no one is talking to me, I get into self-doubt again.
An article on the beyond tellerrand blog about how and what I feel before, during and after an event.
