Your Happy Place!

Do you even know what it’s like to not know where you belong? I’m writing to you about what’s the meaning of home to me.

A home is a place where you feel the warmth of your family and your friends. You also feel comfort from them when you are down. In your home you should always feel safe and secure so when you feel like something is wrong you can always depend on your home to make you feel like nothing bad will happen to you there. It is a safe place.

In your home you should always feel happiness. When I say happiness, I mean that if you had a tough day at work or at school or if it’s raining and that makes you sad, don’t be! You can be cheered up in your home where none of the bad things can get to you.

In your home you should feel free! You can be yourself. For example maybe you try to be like someone else you’re not so people will be nice to you or be your friend, while at home you can feel free to be you or how ever you want to be!

Home and house are two different things. A home is a happy place. A house is just a structure where you can feel safe but it’s basically just a roof and walls, nothing like a home. It even says it in the dictionary, “1. the place where one lives permanently, especially as a member of a family. 2. an institution for people needing professional care or supervision”.

I hope you learned about the meaning of home.
