2] Do you consider where you are living now your true home or are you still far, far from home?
We live in a bungalow, and consider it home. We lived on a boat, and it was home. I visited Bro in NZ for 2 months on my own in 2010 and was far, far from home.
Home is where Hubby and I are together.
3] Do you think the days when families used to live close to each other and held closer tight knit communities are still present or long gone?
It depends on the individual and the family concerned. I envy close knit families as IMO today everyone is so busy with their own lives, family traditions and loyalties are lost.
One of the best things I did after my divorce was leaving the parental county. I wasn’t running away, but had the chance of what I thought was happiness. It backfired, though took me years to accept that, but I have never regretted it as I had to stand on my own two feet and sort out my problems. I am aware of several people who cannot cope without the family to fall back on, cannot think or act for themselves, or basically have no clue how to get on with life without someone telling them how. In today’s society, I find that quite sad.
