There is No Place Like Home

“There’s no place like home”

“There’s no place like home.” is a quote by L. Frank Baum. In my essay, I will be talking about what home means to me and that it is a much more profound meaning than house.

In my opinion when somebody tells you to make yourself at home it means to make yourself comfortable. But why not just say make yourself comfortable? People say “home” instead of “comfortable” because the meaning of home is warmth and comfort. Home is not a place it’s a feeling. I think it is very important that everybody has a home to come back to, a family. There’s no better feeling than coming back home and feeling loved. When I think of home the first thing I think of is family rather than house. In order to have a home you need to have a shelter and a good environment within your house/shelter. Knowing that by writing this essay a bigger chance is given to people who don’t have a home to have a home is one of the greatest feelings in the world.

I’m going to talk about the difference between a home and a house. Personally,I do not think it’s the same thing. A house is a structure with walls and a roof. However a person who does not have a house might refer to the place they live in as a home. A home is the environment you create within your house. You could have the prettiest house in the world, it could be worth one million dollars but that doesn’t make it a home.
