HOME ღ

Today I am going to tell you how lucky you are to have a home and the difference between a house and a home. I know it sounds weird, “What? There is an actual difference between a house and a home?” you may think, I say, “Yes”.
There is a difference between a house and a home and I will tell you right now. A house has furniture and stuff you can use, lay on, cook on, and all that, but a home is completely different. A home is yours, a place where you can let yourself go.
A wonderful, calm, relaxing, and beautiful place to go to. Making memories 24/7 with your loved ones and everyone you know. Angry, sad, or scared, its pretty normal to feel that way I guarantee lots of people sometimes feel like that in their home as well. Sometimes home is bad, depressing, or dangerous, sometimes home isn’t all that good…
Some people experience home as waking up with negative thoughts opening the curtains, eyes hurting from the bright sun light and still tired. Maybe even thinking about what might happen at school, work, or a place you are going to, wishing that sadness and anger didn’t attack you.
Depressed and stressed. Crying unhappy tears 24/7, anger echoing in your head. I can’t imagine what my life would be like without home. Starving trying to escape from bombs, terrorist attacks, gangs, waiting in a line for dirty water, I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want that to happen to me or the people I love and know.

People don’t think about those things as much. Having a home is a huge honor. Where you can find your inner self, and passion, expressing your empathy. It doesn’t matter about the shape or how big or small it is, it doesn’t matter about how much it’s worth or what it looks like on the outside, and how new or old it is because its still yours. Even if you travel some where else, home is still yours and no one else’s. Having a home is like winning the grand lottery. You feel amazing, happy, and all these different emotions and thoughts pop in your head.
Even if you live alone, married, have pets, etc, your home is still special.
