Where can people live a more successful and happier life? Stay in village, or go outside? When it comes to this discussion, some people think life in village could be more successful and happier. On the other hand, this idea is strongly opposed by some other group who hold the opinion that going outside is preferable. They argued with the evidence that the city can offer much more than a small village does. According to my knowledge, I'd like to live in a village rather than go outside.
First and foremost, we would surely encounter more opportunities if we go outside to some big cities, but more opportunities couldn't guarantee a successful and happy life. Challenges come along with chances. When we got more opportunities to choose, we will have to face more severe competition. For example, in a village, you may have to compete with hundreds people for a job. But in a big city, your competitors might be several thousands. Besides, the cost of living in a big city weigh much out than in a village. Statistics shows that 57% outcomers can't afford to buy a house in Beijing, and the number is even larger in Shanghai and Guangzhou.
On the contrary, the village can also be a place that provides success. With the development of society, villages are growing at an astonishing speed. By taking advantages of new investments and favorable policies, we can also find numerous ways to success in these emerging markets. Such as establishing your own business, or introducing some new projects.
More importantly, unlike people in big cities, those who choose to live in a village could spare more time to attend their families. For example, my uncle used to live in a big city three years ago and he seldom had time to come back to see my grandparents. Last year, he moved back and decided to work in our village. Now, his appartment is only 2 blocks away from my grandparents', he can come to see them whenever he wanted. I can truly feel that the relationship between him and my grandparents become more intimate.
As I've discussed above, living in a village can provide with numerous new opportunities, bond the relationship between families and bring harmony. So I strongly agree that people who stay in village could enjoy a more successful and happier life.
