Meaning Of Home~

To me, home is a place where you can feel comfortable, where you can feel safe.
Home is where your family is, where memories are. You can always move your home; it’s wherever you are. Your home is yours. A home is friendly and welcoming, something happy and nice. A home doesn’t need decorations to look good. A home means much more and is way different than house. It doesn’t have to be a building, it can be anything you want it to be. It doesn’t matter if you have a big house or a small house, those are your house, not your home.
Your home doesn’t need to be fancy, decorate it however you want to. Your home is a safe place where you don’t have to feel or be scared. A home can go with you wherever you are, if you’re traveling, going on vacation or even if you don’t have a house.
You say “Home Sweet Home” right? Not “House Sweet House”. You say that because you’re happy to be at your home, even though if you move houses, your home will always be with you.
Some people think that their home is their house… well, their home isn’t their house. You should tell the people that say their home is in their house is wrong, you should tell them their home is where you make memories, where family is, it’s comfortable and safe.
You get home sick, not house sick. You don’t miss the building that you live in, you miss where you spend every day with people that you love.
So, that’s what home means to me, and a few other things about how it’s your home, not your house and why you say “Home Sweet Home”
This is what home means to me, bye!~
