What does “home” mean to you?

Topic #261

 Home can be anywhere as long as I’m with the people I love and it gives me the feeling that I’m very relaxed and content.   Life brings a lot of stress and negativity and problems, both emotionally and physically but a home is somewhere that can help you forget about it or put it aside, like a little protect barrier.  Home is somewhere that brings you comfort for your own lifestyle.  Some people feel at home in a space by themselves, while others feel at home when they are with a group of people. 

“Home” is somewhere that I feel the sense of belonging, where I can be in absolute comfort, where I can be myself and not be judged and somewhere my heart and soul truly relaxes. With certain people in my life, I feel at home in a few selected people presence such as my best friends and my boyfriend and of course, my family.

I remember reading a book when I was a teenager by Jean Little called “The Belonging Place”.  I thought it was a wonderful book for coming to age where you understand the whole idea of dealing with belonging to somewhere amongst growing up faced with the issues of loss and loneliness.
