Meaning of Home to Me

Home means an enjoyable, happy place where you can live, laugh and learn. It’s somewhere where you are loved, respected, and cared for. When you look at it from the outside, a home is just a house. A building. Maybe a big, green plot of land. But on the inside, it’s a lot more than wood and bricks. It’s love and kindness. The saying goes: “home is where the heart can really talk.” Also, home means not one, but many things. Most importantly, I believe that home means a secure, cheerful place where you are respected and loved. Everybody deserves to know the true meaning of home. When I started writing this lovely essay, I didn’t think much about the meaning of home. But now, I have found out that home means more. Much more than I thought and it’s sad for the people who don’t have one.
