I’ve never been homeless. I’ve never been an orphan. However I am emotionally homeless, as I have yet to find a place that completely feels like home. Although I am still grateful for how close I’ve come to feeling home. I am emotionally an orphan, as those that I thought were my parents… Never really loved me. Although I am still grateful for the family I have made.
I am emotionally homeless. I am emotionally an orphan. And it still hurts. While I will not compare it to actually being as I have never been, that does not make the pain I feel from both any less.
