Culture shock on arrival in your host country is something that many students prepare for. You expect differences and mentally prepare for these.
“Re-entry” or “reverse” culture shock is not something that most students expect when they return home and yet this lack of expectation can make it more stressful.
It is important for you to realize that coming home can be a challenging experience. While you were away, things may have changed back home. All the “moving on” can result in your feeling a little disjointed or out of place at home.
