Home Sweet Home

Having a clean/safe place to live makes me feel like I do have control of myself and life. I feel better when my place is clean because sometimes I feel like my life is a mess but when I come home to a clean house and feel safe I forget about my problems outside of my home. It motivates me to do something each day, to not give up on myself. It feels like if I start from my home maybe I can get out and do something else that I’m afraid to do. Some other people may think it doesn’t mean anything to them, but it makes me feel like I can do something. You don’t have to do a lot, just one thing at a time, little-by-little and each day will get better. It may not seem like it, but it will get better. Never give up. What I’m trying to say is it gives you motivation to do other things that you are afraid to do but want to do. Just try a little at a time and each day will get better.

Life may feel like a mess, but your home is your home and you need security to feel good about yourself and your home. If you don’t feel safe in your home you’ll never feel good about yourself. You need to feel safe and secure in your own home. Relax, life will get better. Start from home and everything will be more comfortable.

Home sweet home.

Be a sweetie and wipe the seaty!
