3. Don't Let Anyone Define Your Reality, Either

Society has expectations of everyone, too. Women have to meet society's expectation of what they should be, from the standard of beauty to the ideal way to behave. The same is true for men, along with different races, different religions, different sexual preferences – it never ends.

If society expects you to look like Barbie, but you don't have a thigh gap, a year-round tan, and perpetually pointed toes, that just doesn't fit into your reality. You define that reality, by the way. It's all yours. That means you can resist any expectation, whether it's society's or your grandfather's, if it isn't at all relevant to your life.
