This is home

Home is not a house.A house is a building with windows and doors and a unit number,but home is a place that is special in your heart. Home is where you are not afraid to be yourself or let your heart out.When you are at home,you know who you are,what you´re good at and what you want and like.It is when you are with the people you love and want to spend your life with.You feel average when you are in an average place that is not special to you,but when you are at home,you feel smart and special and you feel like you belong.You will know right away if you are home,you will feel a tingling sensation and a wash of relief that you are finally where you want to be.After a hard day or a hard week, you can go home and forget about all your worries and concerns and just relax and clear your mind.You can think of the memories that happened in that very place.Home could be anywhere you want it to be,but no matter where home is,that is the one place you will feel that you are not alone and you feel like the real you and there is no need to pretend or fake your personality.You have friends and family that support you and love you and you are special just the way you are,home is the place that will whisper that in your ear.There is no place like home.
