    You felt like home in the country you were born in? Must not be American.

    I think it's impossible for me, anywhere outside the town I grew up in doesn't feel like home to me, even visiting other places in the same country feels like a trip to somewhere foreign

    Home is about the people, not the destination.

    This. I've lived in my current location for a decade and it doesn't feel like home even though I have friends and an established life here. I feel like an exile

    It's not about length of time, but rather about who is in your life, and how much you have committed to staying there. Buying your own property overseas or signing a long-term lease on a property would make a place feel like home. It's impossible for a place to feel like home if you are living in a rental, and all your social interactions are built on monetary transactions. However, when you are able to navigate throughout the city without consulting a map, and when the folks at the businesses you frequent greet you by name and chit-chat a while every time you drop by, it does give one a sense of belonging to a place.

    As someone living abroad for some 8 years now the real answer is that I don't quite feel at home here (Norway) but I also don't feel quite at home at my birth country (Austria) anymore either.
    I jusdt feel rootless at this point. tbh I think I'll stay in Norway at this point, even though I don't speak a lick of Norwegian.. Moving to another country again just feels like a huge pain.

    depends how many people that ruin everything start to move in around you. It'll never feel like home when joggers start filling up the neighborhood

    In my own country I am in a far off land.
    I am strong but have no power.
    I win all yet remain a loser.
    At break of day I say goodnight.
    When I lie down I have great fear of falling.

    I went from it feeling like home immigrating here as a child to slowly feeling like an alien and now I don't feel like I relate to anything or anyone around me

    Looking to get the frick out asap but can't think of anywhere because I'm not keen on burying my head in the sand of a third world shithole like many others are
