Where Do I Live and How?

Coming from one country and adjusting to another where everything is different, was difficult for me. Until this year, I have lived all my life in Pakistan. There are many differences between these two countries like the lifestyle, culture, religion and others. The main difference I have found is the lifestyle. This huge difference in the lifestyle of the United States has made it quite difficult for me to adjust. In exploring how life in Pakistan differs from the U.S, I have drawn parallels from this transition to that of the wilderness and saying that every time I made a change in my life I am thrown into the wilderness. When I was young, I lived in a very small house in which there were only two bed rooms and a TV lounge. Then when I was eleven years old, I moved to a large house with six rooms, two lounges and a big garden in front of the house. I had my own room and a lot of space to accommodate any friends coming over to my house. I did not, however, like it because I lived in a joint family system and was involved in every happy and sad moment. In my old house, there were five families living in it, every family had only two rooms and a lounge. Whenever I go to my old house to see my relatives, reminds me of the old days. After moving into my new house, I was mostly with my friends doing something and spend little time with my family. I think this was because nowadays in Pakistan, people are more adapting western culture and because of this cultural influence, the life was becoming worse compared to the life people lived in the past in Pakistan. By saying that people are adapting western culture means that the people are becoming more independent and take steps like, life decisions, without asking anyone in the family. I was moving away from my family and sometimes I did not have anyone to discuss my problems. Most of the time I was studying at my friends’ houses or lying to my family, telling them that
