What Home Means to Me

What Home Means to Me

Home is not a place, it’s a feeling. A feeling made up of love, joy and comfort. By love, joy and comfort, I mean family, friends and pets. As long as someone loves you, you will forever have a home. To me, home is more than just a house, it means having comfort, joy and being loved and sharing my love with family.

I always feel comfort in my home. Home is where I can be myself and no one will judge me. I can be crazy and still be loved. If I need someone to talk to, there will always be someone to comfort me. At home, I can always be myself and there’s always someone to comfort me.

Being at home gives me joy. Whether I’m hanging out with my family or just relaxing. At home I do many joyful things such as read, play sports and talking. Joy to me, is home. Being happy is something that is needed in everyone’s life and home is giving me my daily dose of joy.

As I stated before: Home is a feeling. Part of that feeling is love. Love from family, friends and for me, pets. I have many pets, two fish, a dog, five cats and a bunny. They’re probably my best friends. I also have a brother who I only really see at home and school because I’m quite busy after school. For me,love is actually what home is.

I often call my house, “home”. It really isn’t home, it’s only called that. Home is really comfort, joy and love. After all, home is where the heart is. And my heart is with my family. This is what home means to me.
