Confidence. Resilience. Patience. All qualities of people who have devoted their body or mind to a certain activity. The ideas and practices that these people follow are for many purposes; acceptance, approval, self-satisfaction, etc. Are these purposes necessary? Why do people want to get accepted or approved by society? What makes them want to satisfy themselves so much? The way that society has changed has made these practices a prerequisite for acceptance.
Dieting is an exercise that many people commence in hopes of having an “ideal” body. Some people think that they need to pay closer attention to their eating and exercise habits. Others diet because they think they are supposed to look a certain way. Actors and actresses are thin, and most fashion media show off thin models. Regardless of only a handful of people having the ideal feminine body, many people are crazy about making their body look similar to those of models. In doing this, the handful becomes a bunch and the bunch becomes many. As generations come and go, more people will look aesthetically pleasing. Around 20 years later, if you are fat and obese, you will become an outlier as opposed to 20 years before when being skinny and pretty was an unique trend.

When a lot of people practice the endurance of pain to build strength, resilience, and/or a sense of unity, it brings people together and it forms a more congenial society.
