Homesick is the distress or impairment caused by an actual or anticipated separation from the specific home environment or attachment objects. Feelings of longing are often accompanied by anxiety and depression. These symptoms may range from mild to severe.
That’s the definition given by the Wikipedia encyclopedia.

Many people around us experience it in some moments in our life but why some much more than others? Are they too attached to their family or is it just a mental state of the mind? I believe that is just depends on the individual themselves. Some are brought up closely attach to their parents and loved one but does that really justify their reasons? What about those in the same situation but are able to withstand the temptation of jumping onto the next bus home?

Maybe those people are just pampered from young or could not withstand the stress and problems in life. Thus, they retreat back home in order to obtain comfort and assurance but is this healthy? What about when they are left alone in this world? What would happen to them then? Will they be able to endure it all? Or resort to disturbing endings?

On the other hand, what about those who do not get homesick? Or at least they get over it in a considerable or normal time length. I believe they are the stronger people in life who are able to go through life challenges without withering or faulting. They would be the ones most outstanding and able to look fear in the eye and smile.
Yupz…That’s what I think. :)
