Mirror of life
People are born and bound to a certain belief, even though we still do not have the knowledge to understand life itself. Life can be both massively terrifying and promising indeed, but what we must know is that we have to see things bigger than we should; opening our minds to the vast world we live in, try to communicate to others with regards to diversity and cultural understanding.
Culture is a way of life shared by a group of people, and it generally refers to the knowledge, beliefs and values that bind a society together in a strong compact material that may represent cooperation and as well as human understanding . Culture is absolutely manifold and it may include things like language, artworks and perhaps literature. These ways of thinking, feeling and behaving, is all connected to a shared knowledge of a society which allow the members to gain meaning from the objects and ideas around them. When we talk about society we are referring to the way people organize themselves.
Society is talking about a bunch of people who live together usually in a specific geographic area that interacts more with one another than they do with others, resulting to sharing common culture over time. Through culture, people and groups define themselves, conform to society's shared values, and contribute to society. It is somehow like a form of process, culture can be thought of as the rules that guide the way people live, on the other hand, society can be thought of as its structure. The big takeaway is that society is just organized groups of people, and culture is their way of life. These two are obviously not the same thing, but they cannot exist without each other. Society cannot function without its culture.
Moreover, it is not always permanent, it also changes through time, some cultural practices are still intact and followed by its people but some are being changed for many and different reasons, one of those reasons is that cultures are inherently predisposed to change and at the same time, to resist change. There are dynamic processes that encourage the acceptance of new ideas and things while others encourage changeless stability.
In conclusion, culture is the heart and soul that plays a major role in people and in society, it is the manifestation of what a particular set of people thinks, feels, believes in, and holds as ideal. It is a vital part of people’s lives, influencing their views, values, hopes, and dreams. It defines who they are, where they come from and where they belong; the group, race, national origin, class, gender, and religion. It reflects the whole being of a person thus, culture is the mirror of life.
