the third culture kid project - culture clashes

The problems are that TCKs may appear arrogant (if not actually arrogant) to monocultural people because of their wealth of knowledge and experience. Their rootlessness may keep them switching from college to college or from job to job. Their grief because of all the good­byes they have experienced over and over again, if unexpressed and unresolved, may lead to deep seated anger or depression. Their experience of frequent good­byes may also make them hesitant to form close relationships for fear of being hurt again but that can result in terrible loneliness.
– Up the Ghat, M.C. Tegenfeldt
