    Home-stressed

    When being the eldest in the house just seems to make you the prime point of being blamed for all the bad things in the house.When you try your hardest and yet, you are still not acknowledged.When everyone gives you the cold shoulder, and you're on your own.Sometimes I wish I...

    Need A Home

    Well me and my mom is a motel and don't know what tomorrow brings. Honestly I worry but not as much like I used to. I can say that. I am 22 years old and been working dead end jobs for awhile. Lord knows I'm trying.

    I am 30 years old and recently moved 1000 miles

    away from the place I had been previously living. Since leaving my mom's house at 18 I have moved around the northwest but each new place always felt like home after a few weeks. I requested to work at my current location to get away from the people in my life who were driving...

    I Don't Think I Belong Here

    And I think that in some way, I will always be homeless. I lived in my home state just long enough to still not remember it, then I moved to a city that I don't belong in, and my goal is to move to Australia and then to England. I will never really be home anywhere, and I...

    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!

    I push everyone away. Sometimes I mean to, other times it is unintentional. I don't want to be alone but it happens. I did it right before I left home for the first time, to go to Basic Training. I did it again with my wife who I am divorcing. I did it again after I went home on...

    I've never really had a home.

    When I was little I lived with abusive people who raised me like I was there own, but who abused me and made me a slave. I had to leave because many years later my past tried to catch up with me, and some of those same people tried to start the abuse again. I stay with my...

    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...

    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.

    This is not literal to me.

    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...
