A person breaking the mold is someone who is breaking with his or her social heritage and is adopting a pattern other than what is expected. Such individuals do not follow the linear pattern of their background. This could be anyone who breaks free from a stressful childhood and then creates a better life for himself or herself, or someone who decides to follow a completely different path compared to the rest of the person’s family. Basically, these are people breaking through any given limitations or set social patterns.
