The Meaning of Home

The Meaning of Home

In this essay I talk about family, safety and comfort. Family is one of the most important things in life because without family you wouldn’t exist. Safety is when you are not in danger and don’t have to be afraid. In my last paragraph I will talk about comfort and how it makes you feel good.

Family is what you come home to when you are gone all day to work or to school.
Sometimes you have family that you don’t come home to everyday like grandparents and aunts and uncles but that does not mean you don’t love them and miss them. It is important to spend time with all of your family because in reality they really are home.

Being safe is when you feel like you are not in danger and that you don’t have to be afraid. Home is a place where you can feel that safety. It is not just the house that helps you feel safe but it is the people in the house that reassure your safety and that everything will be okay even if it feels like it won’t be for now.

Feeling comfortable is nice. Some people get pets for comfort and some people use family. Comfort is when you feel at peace and that you can be yourself without being judged or being criticized. Comfort can also mean putting on comfy pajamas and snuggling up with a big blanket and your family to watch Stranger Things.

In closing, all of these topics are good to have and each one of them is connected to the other. You can’t have family without feeling safe and comfortable. I think the meaning of home is family.
