Problems arise when people start to focus too much on either one; we need to strike a balance between the two. On one hand, culture adds a unique taste to someone’s life; it gives person a chance to express themselves. But it is important not to indulge yourself in culture and forget about the environment you live in. In our North American society, there’s a wide range of cultures that can be seen. If we stay too attached to our culture and forget about adjusting to the environment, we create friction between us and people who are different then us. On the other hand, one should not forget culture and just focus too much on living a very shallow and basic life. Without culture, you miss out on the diversity and the beautiful aspects of various cultures.
Therefore, one needs to strike a very delicate balance between culture and life. There are various aspects within these very broad topics, but they are very subjective and emotionally powered. It’s essential to find out your own balance because there is no formula for it and no one else can find it for you.
Until next time, take care and enjoy
