When Home Is A Person

One Wedding

When you find The One, you just know it. You can feel it. That’s not just a cliché—it’s the truth. And when you find The One, home is wherever you are with them.

When home is a person, you feel secure and safe, no matter where in the world you are.
You could be thousands of miles from the place you grew up, or right next door. Home is the feeling you get when they wrap you up in their arms and you know that you are taken care of.

When home is a person, you feel homesick when you are apart.
You look forward to reuniting again and when you do, a warm feeling of pure bliss surrounds you—it feels right. Like you are back where you belong at last.

When home is a person, you always carry their love with you.
It never dulls, weakens, or dies. You possess an endless supply of affection and trust that transcends distance and physical boundaries.

When home is a person, you never feel alone or out of place.
As long as you have them, you are where you’re meant to be. Nothing seems too intimidating when you have their support to back you up through all of life’s inevitable twists and turns.

When home is a person, it doesn’t matter where you come from or what you’ve been through.
Home is where you are loved wholly and unconditionally, without barriers, restrictions, judgments, or expectations. Home is where you are most comfortable being your absolute self—where you are treasured and celebrated for the unique flaws and quirks that make you authentically you.

When you find the right person, settle in. You’re home. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
