What Home Means to Me

What does home mean to you? I’m going to be sharing what home means to me.

To me home means good memories filled with laughter and happiness. Like when I got my cat Aura I cried tears of happiness and I laughed at how much I was crying. That’s one of my favorite memories. It feels like I’ve had her forever. Even just watching a good movie with my family can make a fond memory.

To me home means love, family and comfort. Anytime I want I can go to my house with my loving family and snuggle up to watch a movie or something. Like when I sit down to eat supper that my parents made, it tastes amazing. Then me and my parents talk about our day or even just watch a show on the tv.

To me home means friends, family, trust, being yourself and feeling safe while doing so. I’m so happy I can be myself. When I came out to my friends and family, they accepted me for who I am and I felt safe telling them because I trust them. I tell my friends and family everything.

That’s what home means to me. Home is somewhere that consists of these things. Without these things it just wouldn’t be home.
