We’ve all heard the phrases; home is where the heart is. Home sweet home. Charity begins at home. Home this, home that, home, home, home. Home is our safe space, our nest or safe haven at the end of every grueling, awesome, funny, sad day. But why? Why do we tend to feel so safe in the comfort of our own personal space? Why is it that at most times we can’t wait to get home and fall flat on our beds and sleep or open up our laptops and start watching that new episode of King Julian? Personally, I think it’s simple. We feel safe and comfortable. We feel like that is the place we need to be at to know that we are in a haven of endless awesome possibilities. We know that we belong here. We know that no matter what the circumstances are we need to be in this place to achieve a certain level of peace or happiness or whatever it is we crave for.
The other day I was at a friend’s sending off get together party and there were dozens of people I didn’t know. In fact I only knew my friend and his dog. Everyone else was but a mystery. At some point I kept thinking how I felt singled out because everyone was having a good time; or how awkward I felt trying to laugh at everyone else’s inside jokes then when someone asks me what I’m laughing at I’d decide to fake an urgent phone call. I felt like the mere presence of the people around me inhibited me from being myself. It’s simply because I felt like I didn’t belong. New people, new things, new situations. They are scary. They can drive us insanely mad with constant thoughts of how we feel like we don’t belong.
