The Meaning of Home

“Home is where you feel at home and are treated well. A home without books is a body without a soul. There is no place like home. The ache for home lives in all of us.” By Marcus Tullius Cicero Honestly there are so many things that make home a home. For me, it’s trust, family and love. What makes home a home for me? Trust,I know that it’s hard to trust people you don’t really know and you don’t really need to trust everybody.Just trust people you know well.Now what else makes “Home” a Home. Family for me means the people that care for me. My family aren’t just the ones that live in my house. They are everyone that will help me when I am sad or when I am mad but that is for me. Everyone mostly has the same things/emotions.If I was bullied and it was at school and I had to choose one it would be my teacher because she means the most to me as my family at school. What else makes home a ”Home”? I have chosen love because I get hated a lot of the time and I struggle with love. That doesn’t stop me because everyone in my life is my Family, I trust all of them and most of all I love all of them. I get really emotional with this kind of stuff and it’s hard to tell people my feelings. I think that my favorite one is family! Family is my favorite one because you will always have it. Be yourself because you are strong. Remember, you have trust with people, family with everyone, and most of all remember that you are loved by everyone around you.
