Moving from First Home to New Home

Good Essays
I was ripped from the home I grew up in. It can be hard for kids to move. I think it was tough for me because I had to leave my friends, my safe place, and the home I grew up in. At the age of ten, I moved to a new house. It was disappointing because I had to leave the friends I grew up with behind. We would play together every day, but the day I told them I had to move, we all sulked around. My mom was in a very good mood, but every time she looked at me I couldn’t help but cry because I was leaving my friends behind. The move to the new house was pretty scary. I didn’t know anyone around, and I felt like it wasn’t safe. My neighborhood is not the best. Since I have moved, there have been multiple break-ins and thefts around my house, including mine. I still get scared, which makes me feel like my old house was a safer place. I always thought that I would live in the place I grew up in until I was eighteen. It never happened, and I still don’t like the thought that I won’t see my mom grow old in that house. Although my memories are pleasant, they can still make me sad. My old home was the first and last spot I had seen my grandma which makes me miss her all the time. From my point of view, the new house can’t bring as many memories as the one I grew up in. I have figured out that it’s not just a location, but more of a checkpoint through the adventure that is life. Also it's nice to feel safe, but glory usually takes risks. The experience leaves me wondering what will come

    Moving To a New Home M. K. Soni said "Home sweet home. This is the place to find happiness. If one doesn't find it here, one doesn't find it anywhere." I have truly realized that this quote is very true. I seem to find so much happiness in my life when I am home. Being around family and feeling that warmth by being at home is something that a person will not find anywhere else. I remember living in a small red two bedroom trailer from the time I was born until I turned ten or eleven. I made a thousand…

The author supports this claim by first generally referencing negative effects of being able to fly, drive, or potentially move long distance. Patetic continues by declaring that there are more downfalls to mobility than benefits. The author’s…
