Learn Good Culture From Admired Individuals – Mastering the Art of Coadaptation
Cultures are what make a society function. Good habits are the glue that holds our societies together and helps us maintain a sense of belonging in a world where identity is a hard, but important to discover. Culture also helps us understand ourselves and how we fit into a larger whole. In some ways, it helps us define ourselves. Thus, learning good habits can help us learn more about ourselves, and help us to build and maintain better ones.
Some of the most important concepts in development of good habits and behaviors involve cultural values, norms, and rituals. A basic foundation in these concepts and patterns can help one to become more tolerant of different thoughts and behaviors from other cultures and individuals. Thus, it is important to learn good culture from an early age.
The best way to learn good culture is to be exposed to a variety of different cultures at a very young age. Most children start to learn good culture from their parents and family members, especially when it comes to respecting different cultures and their individual rights. The need to learn and value different cultures is rooted in human nature and evolution. Thus, it is essential to find homes where different cultures are already being valued.
As babies, we are surrounded by all kinds of culture: mother’s customs, father’s behavioral patterns, and local customs. However, as we grow up and enter secondary school and high school, our exposure to culture narrows down. Our focus turns to more academic and technical concepts, while our personal behaviors and norms become secondary. We may start thinking and acting the same way in school as we did as children, but behind the mask of these behaviors are deeper, underlying cultural assumptions. These can be difficult to recognize at first, but over time, we will become more aware of the meanings behind our words and actions. Once we have become more aware of our own cultural beliefs and thoughts, we can work to change them to fit with our own beliefs and values.
However, this process takes time, effort and patience. As adults, it is important to be aware of the different cultures around us and be honest about the beliefs and actions that we have in our own. If we hold yourself honest, however, you will be able to continue to grow in your own way, while also growing in harmony with the various different cultures in which you interact. This makes for a happy and fulfilling life overall!
While it is not always easy to accept another person’s beliefs and behaviors, it is vital to do so. Each of us has our unique set of beliefs and behaviors. We must learn to respect all of the different cultures in which we live, work and study if we are going to fully realize ourselves as individuals. Learning to adapt is part of this process and it helps to avoid bad habits and behaviors that can make us less successful. It can be hard to figure out what the right behaviors and beliefs are, but once you understand the different cultural influences on your life, it becomes easier to choose the ones that will make you thrive!
