Habit 1 strongly supports the idea of self-image by saying to be proactive. In order to do this, teens have to take over their own life and make their own decisions and to stop being reactive.
When Lenina's friend, Fanny, hears of Lenina's four month affair with Henry, she responds with disdain and surprise: "It's such horribly bad form to go on and on like this with one man" (Huxley 41). In the New World Society, a young woman like Lenina should be constantly switching partners. Sex, much like the society's feel-good drug soma, is a very instant form of gratification. Building a long term relationship can be emotionally taxing, something that society in Brave New World opposes. Why spend time trying to build deep and intimate relations with a person, when happiness can easily be achieved through multiple partners and constant satisfaction?

This led to a great debate and a dispute between the Knight’s brothers named Placebo and Justinus. While Placebo told January to take his own decision without taking anybody’s opinion into consideration, Justinus counseled against marriage since women are fickle. January then decided to get married. January, wished to have a young wife of no older than thirty, for a young wife would be more pliable, but Placebo warned him that it takes great courage for such an aged man to take a young wife.

By taking the case, Atticus held true to his former beliefs. He simply was not willing to give away any part of himself in order to please his community. Additionally, Atticus decides to invest himself in the case because of the example he wanted to make for his young children. Atticus reasoned with Scout that he couldn’t face them, or “couldn’t even tell [her] or Jem not to do something again” (75), if he weren 't to go to trial with Tom. Atticus addresses this idea because he understands that him not taking this case, and going against everything he’s ever stood for, could not make a good example for his kids.
All three girls had numerous marriage proposals - the two eldest always turned their suitors away with the declaration that they had no intentions of marrying anyone less than a duke or an earl.

When the father told his children that they would all leave town and move to the country cottage the two eldest daughters replied that they would not leave and go with him. They thought they had plenty of gentlemen who would marry them but soon found out that the men they had turned down so harshly now had no pity for them.
