A house is built by hands but a home is built by heart. This a common saying but little do we concentrate on the part”by heart”.

In the current world with the assistance of media, we have believed that the bigger the better and forgetting a house without people in it isn’t home. There are countless article on how to make a home but this article is more intimate. This article is more of the person than the structure that we call home.

it comes a time in one’s life that he/she goes through challenges in life and they try to find someone or somewhere they can go to feel safe. The question is who will you run to when the world is about to end. who will your kids run to when things aren’t good. We have forgotten that a home is a person and not a building or things in it.

It’s so hurting to see your children/your spouse/your companion seeking home somewhere else because you can’t offer that security, that peace or what they need at that particular time. The lack of creating that home as caused a number of infidelity in marriage and so many other fallouts in the community.

So as a parent can your kids run to you when things aren’t working, will you be the listener to that wife when things aren’t working, will you be the comforter to that man when the day was awful to him? Will you be that home that everyone is seeking.

Am writing to you so that you can be a home and also find a home. we all need to be appreciated, listened to, comfortable and to be loved unconditionally. A home is a place where you are not judged but corrected. A home is a place where you directed but not mocked. A home is where you find solutions but not problems.

My reader kindly have a meeting with yourself and ask yourself are you home or you are haunted building that nobody wants to associate with. Am writing this because I have seen people who can’t disclose what they are going through with the people they call love ones because of the fear of being judged. some of the cases of suicide could be solved with one sitting where one is listening, where one is loved, where one feels safe to air out their trouble .

I hope we can change the world together and make it a better place. Thank you for reading this article. Kindly share it with friends and families and give it a like, subscribe, follow and leave a comment but most importantly “let’s grow together”
