Home is many things. To some people, home is a place of comfort and relaxation, others might find home a boring place and would rather be at the park or at a friend’s house, and some people don’t even have a home. Every views home a little differently, and today I will tell you how I view my home.

In my home, I feel safe and accepted. If I have a bad day or feel sick, I can stay in my home in order to recover. If I want to sit a relax all day in my home, I can do that. Home is a place of acceptance, where you can be yourself and do whatever without any pressure being put on you. That is one of the reasons I like home.

Another reason I like home is because of family. Most of the time when you’re home, there’s bound to be family. For most people, family is like a mixed bag. There’s some times when their so annoying and you feel like ripping them in two, but other times their nice, like when the let you have a piece of their chocolate. Whatever way you think about your family, there’s one thing you can’t deny, their there for you. If you’re feeling sad or lonely, you’re family will be there in your home, and that’s another reason I like home.

There are many reason to like home. It could be it’s comforting or because that’s where your family lives. Whatever the reason, home is a very special place, and a place you will cherish forever.
