what home means to me

What home means to me. Home to me means a place to go when you’ve had a bad day. A place to go when you just need to cry or just vent for a little bit. I know someone who was without a home for almost 6 years. I haven’t seen him in almost 4 years. He had no home and during that time he turned to drugs and alcohol but when he finally got a home, he stopped doing drugs and stopped doing alcohol. I believe it was because of his house. How he finally had a place to sleep in shelter and security. I think that homes are a very important part of everyone’s life no matter their age.

Most people majorly overlook the fact that they have a house. They don’t realize how much of a privilege it is to have a place to sleep in safety. People my age say that if you have a small house it’s a bad house. But maybe they just can’t afford a big house.

home means a lot to me because I have a pretty big house and people say I’m a rich kid, when I’m just a very fortunate kid. I think a home is a place to just do whatever you need or want to do. I can’t imagine living without a house. Living without a place to go to have some privacy or just to get away from the social world for a while. When you’re having anxiety from school, or your friends are being mean or dramatic, your home is a place to go to vent away all stress, anxiety or depression. A home is a very important thing in everyone’s life. And so many people overlook that.
