    Now this plays straight into my bag of troubles πŸ™‚ What about those who are going through a bit of quarter life crisis, and have become disoriented enough to say ” no one loves me” all the time ? πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    I have been out of home for the last 15 years or so, and to be honest, I do not really know where I belong. Parents visit often, and it feels good. But I do not seem to belong to all that. I fail to connect with things they believe in, and the other way round.

    So the current state of affairs seems to be this: Home is something that does not come about naturally. It is what you earn, over the course of actions you undertake in life. But again, that is my personal belief and not necessarily true.

    Maybe I have not discovered it. Not yet.

    1. I should have known you will look at it from that perspective, Tatsat! πŸ˜€ About not knowing where you belong…it brought back the quote by V.Nazarian I found and used in the photo challenge last week: “The heartland lies where the heart longs to be. Sometimes it takes a lifetime to find the true place to plant it.” And I believe in it. It’ s never about “nobody loves me”, I think it’ s the other way around. Do you love yourself? Do you love anybody? My opinion about the “feeling of home” is a bit different from yours – I think people have it within themselves. Together with memories, with images from the past, hopes for the future, feelings, appreciation of the moments and the ones they were/are shared with. And it is…earned by…being.

        That is a beautiful home to aspire to have. I have known people who said that and have lived on to do great things. I am sure you will do great too. But maybe, I am under-evolved at the moment. Even though I know the thing, I do not really feel it much. Has to be something more than just my past life and future expectations. It has to be somewhere I want to give up my life to be. It has to be that dear to me right ? Maybe I will have some place like that in years to come…
        But it is a beautiful thought indeed.
        About being able to love myself- I guess I do love myself. Not too much but a little. Love makes you blind, they say and to know myself, I must have my eyes right ? πŸ˜‰

        1. Thank you, Tatsat!
          You know…I don’ t think you need to give up your life to feel at home. To have that feeling of home within you. More like it is a part of you, you living your life. But that’ s just my opinion πŸ™‚
          It’ s really wonderful you love yourself – even if just a bit and not blindly (why would you need to exaggerate?) … You are on the right path then, aren’ t you? πŸ˜‰

            Yeah well… I am taking baby steps. But to be honest Ese, there are just so many givens around me, that sometimes its just so frustrating. Givens as in the established ground rules of things, established definitions of things, established notions of good and bad. It is suffocating because even though it does not seem to work, it is being dragged on. I, for one, am trying to do my best to challenge everything that is set. Might be wrong, but then… someone said,” never let the fear of striking out, stop you from taking a shot” πŸ™‚

            I hope you do not mind my stupid questions and comments. There is just so much that people like me could learn from you. Music, the take on things and …well..everything πŸ™‚

            I can tolerate difference of opinion πŸ™‚

            1. Oh, I am sure you are doing very well! Who said the baby steps were bad… And it’ s just natural and logical you are looking for your own approach – to understand and move ahead. πŸ™‚
              I don’ t mind at all – don’ t worry. I am not sure I could be the best teacher (yet I am flattered by what you said, of course πŸ™‚ ) but I am always ready to share my opinion. And I know you can take it πŸ˜‰

                Thank you so much for the response. It is not easy to find people who are of the same wavelength these days…
                Well, there can’t be any room for ego when you want to learn right ? I know, and I am confident, that there is a lot that I can learn from you. So… all this flattery business is just for my own sake πŸ˜‰ Greedy greedy πŸ™‚
