Your family can be embarrassing. We’ve all experienced the I-wish-I-could-disappear feeling when your bratty sister or loud mother are being obnoxious. Why do we let it affect us? Although society has a habit of judging others due to the crowd they socialize with, the person you are beside does not define you. If you choose to walk away from someone, do it because you want to, not because you worry how it will appear to others. Your clothes, cell phone, house, car, etc. only defines you if you let it.
