"... Pollock quote from the TCK book which stuns me every time I read it: For most TCKs the collection of significant losses and separations before the end of adolescence is often more than most people experience in a lifetime. Imagine that before reaching age 18, most of you will have ..."
"...Imagine that before reaching age 18, most of you will have experienced more loss than most people do in their entire lives. These losses are both tangible and intangible. The tangible losses are numerous and easily recognized – houses, pets, friends, possessions, places, foods, languages, and schools to name a few. The hidden losses are more obscure. Think about it, with one plane ride, everything is lost – an entire world, a lifestyle, ..."
"... loss – the past that never was. - Grieve Well - We, as humans, need to grieve our losses. We can get stuck emotionally until we recognize our loss and grieve for it. Grief validates all the good in our lives. Grieving well means ▪ recognizing and naming the loss, ▪ mourning the ..."
"...Unfortunately TCKs have little or no time to grieve. Today’s travel is usually done by airplanes rather than boats as in days past. So, a few hours to a day at most is all the time they have to name their losses and deal with their grief before they land in their new host country and hit the ground running to learn the in’s and out’s of a new place and its culture. ..."
"...Give yourself permission to grieve. Spend some time with the losses and disappointments you are facing. Put a name on what they are, e.g. “I was known as the best female athlete in my school.” “I don’t know if I’ll ever see my best friend again.” “I’ll miss my boyfriend…favorite teacher …or coach.” “I always directed the annual fashion show.” ..."
"...If you feel you are stuck in your grief, seek professional help from a counselor who understands TCKs. There are those times when a TCK/ATCK cannot figure out exactly what their losses are because they have been repeatedly told they should not be so negative. The grief is then so suppressed that they have a difficult time going there on their own. This is when a professional therapist can come alongside them and walk with them on this journey of discovering ..."
"... As you can see in Marie’s journal entry below that immediately followed the one at the beginning of this chapter, she, without even realizing it, was facing her fears and losses, while at the same validating her experiences and recognizing the value of having taken the journey. - ..."

Chapter 4: Fish Out of Water
"...What do you do when homesickness hits? Homesickness is tough to avoid – not just for international students but all students. Many domestic students are also far away from home, maybe for the first time. Homesickness is an expression of grief. You are grieving over your losses. Domestic students share many of the same losses that you do – home, family, friends, routines, and way of life. Not everyone will necessarily experience homesickness, but for those who do, it will manifest itself in different ways for different people. For some it will be preoccupying thoughts of ..."
"... Along with the losses of what you have left behind is a realm of gains. What are some of the positive things that have come out of this experience? You may be missing your old friends, but you are making new ones, seeing new places and having some exciting new experiences. Don’t give ..."
"...We all experience various losses throughout our lifetimes and the subsequent grief that comes with each one. It is a part of life and is difficult to avoid, especially for the TCK. As mentioned in Chapter 3, loss is a common theme for TCKs. If you can identify and put a name to ..."

"...a smell, a sound, a song – and you are momentarily swept back in time to a place that has now become idealized or romanticized because it was so much better than this place. It was easy, comfortable, happy…or so it seemed. It is again time to name those losses, spend time with the grief associated with the loss, bring them to closure, and move forward. ..."

"...People, places, pets and possessions are obvious losses. What about the hidden losses–not being able to play a beloved sport because of a move, never again seeing a mentor who helped develop a love for music or science, or the loss of the reputation or status your child enjoyed in the community, or everything about his or ..."
"...We have talked a lot about grief in the hope that TCKs will learn to address their losses, allow themselves to deal with them and come to closure so they do not have to deal with issues of unresolved grief like our friend Brice’s story. Anger is an expression of unresolved grief and may manifest itself in this time of delayed adolescent rebellion. Oftentimes this anger is ..."
