    I feel lucky to still have a roof over my head. Because i'm not doing much to earn it. When i read about people losing their housing, it just makes me really nervous and sad. Cause it can happen to me also.

    Where I grew up. Can't get over that, I've lived 2600km away for 2 years now but I still say "at home" to refer to that place.

    I honestly have no idea how to answer that question =\ should it not be where you feel safe and secure, if that is even possible.

    I've never really had a 'home' before, my home was always just a place where my crap was.
    I've lived in houses/apartments/trailers/group homes/shelters and I've never really felt like the place that I was living was my 'home'.
    My home tends to be where I am currently living- and where most of my shit is.

    I'd like to OWN a house some day and turn it into a true 'home', but doing that kind of thing seems impossible for a person in my position.
    My mom is in her late 40's/ my dad is in his late 50's and neither of them have ever owned a place of their own.
    It's kind of depressing.

    i'll go cheesy and say "where the heart is", i do not care about the place i was born (although it wasn't all bad), neither i care where i'm now (worse society ever)

    Where I feel safe and when I'm not living/eating and sleeping on a bus, train, airport or on my ex's floor, my parents couch, my old 'room'. etc. Home is...where I'm feeling well enough to look after myself, it's not a frightening thing to stay indoors, I'm sleeping in my bed and I feel calm inside. Home is where I'm not petrified into floating, and it's taken 2 1/2 years for me to feel like I have a home in my flat.

    awww I know what you mean!

    where all the problems are.... definitely no possible way to be or feel even remotely safe here. what feels more of a home to me was my best friends house, but she had to move away due to money issues....the only 'safe' place i have now is the soft grass under a tree in the park

    To be honest i don't know where home is but i reckon its pretty much all of the above.
