Meaning of Home

The meaning of home

I believe that the meaning of home is not just where you live,it is where you feel safe. It is where you have space to express yourself,or to just be alone. Home has millions of meanings. I’m going to tell you the ones I think are true. The meaning of home to me is a place where I can be alone, and just be myself. I love my home because I feel safe and included.

There are many reasons why a home is important, especially to a kid. If I didn’t have a home I would be stressed, cramped, and sad. It would be stressful because if anyone asked me where I lived, I’d either have to lie or be embarrassed. I would be cramped because I would have to sleep in my car and carry my stuff everywhere. I’d be sad because I would have nowhere to live.

Thankfully I don’t have to experience anything like homelessness. I am able to have friends over because I have a home, I can be a kid without having to worry. I think it is important to have your own space, so I have my own room. I am not sad because I have my own house and I have a home to live in. I am very grateful for my home.
