Like many people in the Netherlands, I rent my house, and it sometimes happens that the owner of the house wants to sell the house or use it themselves for something, and you end up being asked to move on. This happened to me a few weeks ago. It confronts you very immediately with how we cling to our homes.
I’ve discussed this with my parents, both of whom still live though they are divorced, to get some idea of how they feel about these things. Certainly my mother said she attaches quite strongly to the place where she lives. It actually took me a few weeks to reach some clarity over this... I’ve had some disturbed dreams and I noticed I’ve been more emotional than usual over it. So I think attachment is there for me as well.
So how do you find you react to moving house?
