Numerous local factors influence my everyday life. These include my work, my friends, family, music, entertainment, the places I visit, school, social media, and the internet. This is mainly because these are factors that I surround myself with every day. In addition, these factors greatly relate to my social circle as well as my culture (Emling, 2006). For example, when it comes to friends and family they greatly influence the activities I engage in. They also influence the places I visit.
For example, my friends and I love to visit shopping malls as a source of entertainment. This has helped to shape my perspective of the world since the activities I engage in and the places I visit change the way I view the world since they help to increase my social circle. This can be attributed to the fact that friends and family greatly influence my character as well as daily activities.
My school also affects my perspective of the world since it in school that I have been able to learn about the world. The internet and social media is also a major factor that is within my local environment that has helped to influence my perspective of the world. The internet and social media provide a vital source of information about the world, for example, through the internet it is possible to find a wide range of articles on different aspects of the world.
On the other hand, social media has helped influence my perspective of the world since social websites have helped to increase socialization and communication. In addition, it has introduced a new global community (Muller, 2014). In conclusion, it is clear that my perspective of the world is greatly influenced through aspects of my local environment that enhance socialization.
