A home is where you feel safe. A house is…Well let me explain. A house is a place where you can sleep,eat,snack, and nap. What if you didn’t have a bed? And you had to sleep on the floor? What if you don’t have a fridge full of food? What if you’re not loved and you have to eat from the trash? What if you don’t have an iphone, or a computer, or even a family, or no friends? You’re just alone.

Let’s talk about home. A home is a little different from a house. A home is where you feel more special and safe. It doesn’t matter if you have money or a house. It just matters if you are loved and if you love yourself. Don’t compare yourself with rich, pretty, gorgeous, handsome and other random people. Just think of yourself as gorgeous and strong and you don’t care what others think. You don’t need negative people in your life. You might not be perfect, no one is. It doesn’t matter what’s on the outside it’s what’s in the inside that counts.

And you know what? I like who I am and no one can change that. If you don’t like that, then you can stop and say to yourself “I love myself and no one can change anything about me.”

My home to me is that this is a place where I can be myself and no one will judge me. If you can’t be yourself without being judged, then you should tell someone you trust. My home I love everyone inside it, especially myself!
