We all have our different definition and perception to what we call home, based on our experiences, what we've been through, and what we have seen from others. To some it can be a place where the whole family comes together, with the kitchen, the sitting room, dining table and the whole contemporary nature of the typical house, some others don't have this privilege of owning a good apartment, so they call their home anywhere their parents goes, should mummy go south today wherever she rest is the home, so home has become more of a person to them, not a place.
Some others don't have the privilege of habinb a parent or a family train them, so they have a whole different idea of home, home is anywhere they can sleep peacefully, it doesn't matter if it's under a bridge, or the backyard of a stadium, anywhere they can rest always and not be disturb, possibly they have identified that location as theirs, it could even be just a spot, that is their home, imagine a refugee camp with many people sharing a space, if they can identify someone to always staying in a particular spot, then automatically it wouldn't take long for him or her to start feeling at home there.
The definition of home really varies with regards to our upbringing, what we came to see has its was of shaping how we know things, that notwithstanding, there is something common to them all, each and everyone would agree that home is where they find rest. Rest is a big deal to the definition of home, when things are not going so great, and you just want to get out of that space, the next imagination is going home to rest. In the case of a severe mayhem, chaos or dangerous situations, everyone prays they can just get home, why home, why not anywhere else, cause home is that final stop, home has it's way of saying "now you can finally rest" even when the reality isn't so.
More reason why we recommend that we keep the home peaceful at all cost, for the most times a home isn't shared alone, its always shared with people, so there are bound to be some misunderstanding, however this misunderstanding are mostly sorted out cause of the strong relationship shared. Its really a frustrating feeling when you can't find good rest in the place you call home, outside is a scary place, we take courage to go out and interact with the world, it's good we come home to familiarity, make home peaceful.
When home is becoming more of pain than peace, we start seeing people try out other things to make a home, for some it could be finding a person who can give that home experience, so they are likely going to cheat on their partner with whoever makes them feel that rest and assurance once again, for some they find activities to artificially create the home experience since they can't get it naturally anymore, so you likely see them hit the bar and get drunk, or possibly engage in stimulating behaviors that can propel happiness, all in the bid to forget how they are feeling currently and burn the stress, cause home of rest is no more.
Everyone deserves home, and I mean a proper home, you do and so does the person close to you, the building is only an external factor, you could be the main reason why someone else sees where you both are as home, it means in you they find that peace, that comfort they can't find anywhere else. The emotions doesn't lie, we can keep hiding it but soon our true expression takes over, when you're not happy with whom you are with, it's only a matter of time, the endurance wears off, especially when you know there is someone else somewhere with the homely experience you seek.
I feel it's different from love, although closely related, but home is different from love, someone could be madly in love with you but not feel at home yet, especially where there are so many complications around the relationship. That's why the better choice of word is Rest. More reason houses are built with the intent of good comfort, so that you can really relax better as you come in search of internal rest. You want to rest your soul and the architect is saying allow me build you a house that you help you rest your body and sight, so your soul can rest in a better living condition.
Where do you call home? Who are the people contributing to make this place called home really worth it. Are there people who can call where you are a home? All this are questions of relevance, it allows us know who we care deeply about and those who care deeply about us. Home is where the heart is, where the heart wants to go finally. For some of us it's no longer where our parents live, we still love them but we are finding home somewhere else, with someone else, we are in love, we want to spend more time together with those we love, we want to come home to them and finally feel at home.
