Most people born in the country side more often than not find the city attractive and appealing. Life in the city is fast and exhilarating, but it can be straining while country life is relaxed, slow and in most cases a stress reliever. First, the social scene is quite different between the two places since the city is highly populated with people of different diversities as compared to the country side. The social life of everyone is highly dependent on where they live regardless of who they are. Social people will therefore find country life boring since most people in the country tend have the same culture as well as beliefs.
The country side gives one a sense of belonging and familiarity which can be a welcoming relief from the hustle and bustle of the city. Most people who live in the city often’ escape’ to the country side for a little bit of peace. Relationships in the country side e are founded more on friendship than convenience. In the city, almost everyone is competing with each other to get a higher status in the society, and this leads to insecurity and paranoia. This poses an enormous problem where trust is concerned while cultural venues in the country life give people opportunities to know each other on a level platform and forge relationships that often last.
Second, the environment between the two places is quite different. There is a lot of air and water pollution in the city as compared to the fresh and relatively pure water as well as air in the country side. Due to industrial waste fumes, few natural plantations (like trees), exhaust fumes and smog in the city, the air is a bit congested and stuffy. In the country life, the scenery is quite different from the sky scrapers and big tall office buildings seen in the city, here there is less congestion and more space with reference to used land and naturally growing plant life. Pure refreshing water is readily available from springs and boreholes which are better than recycled water.
