We can romanticize about what we called 'home' from a distance. However, those who stay back might be living through Hell.
Home is not about a place in the past. It is not where you sleep at the end of the day. It is where you keep all your dreams stashed and pick one each day and work on achieving them. Home is a voice that says, 'It is okay to fail. Let's try again tomorrow.'
My home is here, right now. And it is not a person, building, or room. It is where I can be myself without fear.
