Dealing with Culture Shock at Home

Awhile back, I was fortunate to have one of my articles published in Elephant Journal about culture shock.

Living in a low context culture and often traveling to high context cultures, I find myself trapped in some type of limbo between who I am and who I am supposed to be.

Here is the link to the article:

“When we travel to a new country, culture shock is a catalyst to personal growth.

It’s the spice of life: different cultures communicating in different ways.

I get nervous each time I land in new territory. Learning how local people communicate is my first step to formulating an approach, exploring a new place.

 But what makes me even more nervous is worrying about how I’ll communicate with others upon my return home. Sometimes, it feels like I have more culture shock coming back than I do while I am away.

Why is this?” – quoted from 5 Tips to Cope with Culture Shock at Home
