    This is not literal to me.

    Im not homeless. I live in a house under my parents roof. However, its a weird sensation when you feel more at home at your work than you fo your house. Its a weird feeling when you trust strangers more than you can trust your family. My "home" hasnt felt like home in years. Its...

    No Place To Really Call Home

    I am not homeless but I don't feel like I can call my mom and dad's place home. Every time I enter the house I feel like I'm constantly on edge. I barricade myself in my room so I can avoid conflict with my parents. Mostly my mom because she is only interested in what she has to...

    So, growing up I never had a permanent house

    or childhood home... As I grow older I'm learning to find stability in instabilities. I realized that home can be found in the people you surround yourself with and the memories and traditions that develop. Home is happiness and my happiness most times is with the people I love...

    I just want to go home.

    I've moved so many times that I have no idea what or where to call "home". I have friends and family storing all my things for me, but I don't want to live out of a suitcase anymore. I want to feel relaxed and at home...once and for all.

    Where Is My Home?

    I used to think of my hometown as being home, but when I go back it no longer feels that way anymore - too much history for me there, and since me and my mother aren't speaking I feel I don't belong there. Where I live now doesn't feel like home either - mainly because of my...

    Going through my current situation I am between

    places. Living with people and living out of a suitcase is becoming more and more difficult. Trying to find private time and space is impossible it seems. I'm tired of living with controlling freaks. I need my own home!
