Max McGuire: After the voyage give yourself some time to settle back into family life, to being at home and finding some quiet time for yourself. Many people experience a transition period after time at sea. Time away can build up expectations on both sides that may not meet reality when you’re back. So remember to acknowledge any feelings that might come up.

[Text appears: I miss the life at sea. I miss my ship mates. My family and friends don’t understand what I’ve experienced. I feel disconnected. I feel depressed. I feel withdrawn.]

“I miss the life at sea”, “I miss my ship mates”, “My family and friends don’t understand what I’ve experienced”, “I feel disconnected”, “I feel depressed”, “I feel withdrawn”.

You may experience some of these emotions settling back home.
