Where Is Home?



"Home is where the heart is."

What does that mean? Is home not a physical place? Then why, when we are returning to our place of residence we are "going home..."? I'm just as guilty as anybody else. I call this place home, but why does it not feel like my home? Why do I not feel safe? If I decide that this is not my home, then what is?

I have left myself emotionally homeless. Yes, I have a bed to sleep in, and a roof over my head, but I do not have a home. Will I ever?

I know exactly how you feel. Any sense of home was violated for me, I don't trust and I'm terified to ever let someone close to me. If home is where the heart is, then I don't have one because my heart has been gone for so long.

It is hard to feel unsafe within the 4 walls that are supposed to be "home." How are we supposed to trust anybody outside, when the ones inside have hurt us enough?
