What Home did for Me

44 replies 689 views Edited Nov 9, 2013

I found myself in a point in my life where I thought I was worthless.  I was in an abusive relationship, and I was convinced I wasn't worth anything.  I was trapped, not allowed to go out, have friends, or socialize in any way.

 

And then I found you.  I found Home.  You probably don't remember me, but you saved my life.  You all did.  You gave me strength to leave.  I almost forgot I could.  It took a while, but I escaped!  I can dance again, and I dance with you all in my heart.

 

I love you all so much.  Thank you for giving me back my life.

Home found me when I was at rock bottom.
It's fascinating really. These sorts of platforms are a haven for those in despair in some way or another.

We have them to thank for helping us not lose the will to keep going, but we also have them to thank for an increasing number of people we wish would stop :smileyvery-happy:

I don't know you very well (although I do remember you from back in the day) but you are priceless anyway! I'm sorry someone made you feel otherwise, but they were so wrong. Getting out of a situation like that isn't easy; I'm glad you were able to find the strength to leave. *Big hugs*

I coucld guess why; when you're not allowed to leave your house, you reach out in any way possible.

Thanks.  I'm still scared a bit, but I've got this.  I know I do, and my cat with the fuzzy butt knows I got it too.

We have had several Homesters share their stories here. Stories that are inspirational and heartwarming. We have users who have had, or currently have, real life limitations due to emotional, physical or even geographical barriers and more. Home allows these fine folk to  get up and go, in a sense. Through Home, they can experience walking, running, dancing, gambling and interacting with people from all walks of life. In Home they/we can be "normal".

 

And that's a very important reason why Home should continue onto the PlayStation 4. To keep all of us together as a PlayStation community, whether we have the above limitations or not.

The way you play the game is the way you live your life.

Kat : God Bless you, Sweetie.

 

What has Home done for me ?

Allowed me to meet you, Kat, and fine people like Stephie, Conrad, Joanna, and so many more.

For this, I am grateful, and happy.

 

Kat and Mya keep me laughing; Stephie keeps me donating to a wonderful cause, Conrad keeps me in line, and Joanna keeps me fashionable.

 

Win - WIn :smileyhappy:

Home better be on the PS4.  It's really a great thing.

 

I know...you look at it and think it's just people talking...but that's the point!  We're talking.

 

In Home, I am a real person.  I belong to only myself.  I am pure and I don't hurt.  I am strong, and some people actually think I'm funny and smart.  I functioned and I needed to be with others that also functioned.

While I haven't known you well, but it's great that you survived your abusive relationship and made your grand return, KatCall75. You will always have a home in PlayStation Home, and we're all here if you need anything. :smileywink:
