Sad about moving house watch

    I'm 20 years old and I still live at home with my parents. The house that I currently live in I have lived in all my life and all my memories are here, however my mum and dad have sold the house and we're moving to a house that is much bigger. We're only moving about a mile away from where we live now so I will still be living in the same area and I will be closer to some of my friends but I am feeling a bit sad because I will be leaving all my childhood memories behind and my old pet dog is buried at the bottom of the garden. I am a sentimental guy and I am concerned that I won't be able to create any memories in the new house before I move out and get my own place.

    Has anyone experienced anything similar and can offer any advice or anything like that/

    I spent 14 years in the same house, moved for uni but then my family decided they needed to get out of that estate to somewhere else for a fresh start which was understandable in the circumstances. I was slightly worried, as that house helped to trigger my memories of my dad and of my grandparents who had lived down the road for years before they died (although that house did cause me many sleepless nights with all of the bad memories too) , however if you truly try hard enough you wont lose those memories. Maybe take some photos of the place before you move that should help. And remember its generally the people that make a place not the place itself.
