->''"...with no direction ->''"Those first few weeks home from the war, I moved through the house like an astronaut lost in an alien landscape. Everything looked strange. Smelled strange. Even in the air. My family were bizarre creatures I didn't know how to communicate with. Was too afraid to even touch or look at them for long. This is supposed to be my home, like a complete unknown; like a rollin' stone."''
I had to keep reminding myself. Hoping it would eventually start to feel that way"''.

* ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' has the hobbits return to the Shire and share a drink at their local watering hole, looking completely alienated and distanced from the other hobbits. Sam more-or-less acclimatises, and ends up happily married with kids, but Frodo in particular is never quite the same.

* In ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'', Reiner Braun states that his driving motivation is to return to his hometown. When he finally ''does'' make it home, his family cannot comprehend what he has gone through. [[spoiler: In a family that ''fiercely'' supports the regime, he is forced to toe the party line or risk being turned on by his own family. To this end, he has to parrot the government's propaganda, smile while his family grooms his cousin to follow in his footsteps for their own benefit, and pretend to hate the people he once considered his dearest friends. While he clearly doesn't fit in anymore, leaving isn't an option either because his superiors will kill him and punish his entire family]].

WordOfGod says that the novel was inspired by the author's experience of fighting in the VietnamWar and then returning home.

Sam is the only one who seems to fully fit in again, but after his wife dies, he follows in Frodo's footsteps and sails away to the Undying Lands in the True West.

* Reggie goes through this when he returns to the family manor in ''[[Literature/ElementalMasters Phoenix and Ashes]]'' after being in the front lines of WorldWarOne.
* In Creator/HarryTurtledove's ''[[{{Worldwar}} Homeward Bound]]'', this happens to the Yeagers (Sam, Jonathan, and Karen) after the FTL-capable ''Commodore Perry'' brings them back to Earth 30 years after they depart on the SleeperStarship ''Admiral Peary'' for Home. This is also the case for members of the Race who have spent any lengthy period on Earth, as the lizards are not used to change (their empire having remained largely unchanged for the past 50,000 years).
