It took me several months to view my apartment as a home because I wasn’t sure whether I’d stay or find somewhere cheaper. It was my first time living by myself and at the time my parents were in the process of selling my family home of 20 years which was really sad. My rent is too expensive and I missed the fun aspect and companionship I got from living with housemates, so I viewed it as something temporary. When I finally accepted that it was just easier to stay put and independent-living grew on me, I began to decorate and add my own little touches. Making it my own, made me see it as a home and now I don’t want to leave!
