You've become a triangle

When I came home (the Netherlands), after 3 months on the ship, I had a hard time reconnecting with the people around me. 

I had heard about reverse culture shock before, but even then, it overwhelmed me.

Later on I found this blog that explains perfectly what had happened with me, while being in another culture.

The next time I came home, after being away for 1.5 year, I was more prepared and it was a bit easier. 

It helps to know other 'triangles' and meet with them to share about your experiences. 

Only they will really understand what you're going through.
