The memories associated with the old house
You may have memories galore with your old house. When you look at every corner of it, you find it telling you some story or the other. You must be remembering the days when you started your conjugal life, then got blessed with children saw them growing.
You may move to the writing desk when you sat down to write a note to your husband, the slab in the kitchen must be reminding you, how you made your baby sit on it so that you could cook.
There would be papers kept in the drawer reminding you about the efforts you made to get a mortgage and how you tried to save every penny to own your own nest.
There would be many such strings which would not let you move out of this old house.
The need of moving to a new house

The feelings you come across while moving to a new house

When you are coming to this new house, every single bit gives you a strange feeling. It makes you uncomfortable and makes you suffer from an anxiety due to feeling of unknown. You miss the comfort you had in your previous house for years now.
New house new thoughts

You may find a relief being in a new house because it would not haunt with the old memories. You may revive better with a change in residence.
Coming to a new house, leaving behind the old one could be painful since you have left it out of compulsion and not out of choice.
