I know this is an odd request, but does anybody have any quotes about needing to live your own life, regardless what people want/expect from you?

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go.
[Dr. Seuss]

Because I'm diluted and perfectly flawed, I shall live by passion and not by law.
[Otep, "My Confession"]

Wanting to make someone proud of you is admirable, but feeling you constantly have to prove yourself is tragic.
[executivemonkey]

No one should ever have to feel obligated to prove themselves at all times and in every situation, especially not to those whose loyalty will remain in tact long after everyone else's has withered away and died. That is, after all, what forever is for.
[Anthony Lester]

You were born an original. Don't die a copy.

When i first read your request the first thing that came into my head was this song by Linkin Park called Numb. Here are the lyrics :

I'm tired of being what you want me to be
Feeling so faithless lost under the surface
Don't know what you're expecting of me
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes
(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)
Every step I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)

[Chorus]
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
I've become so tired so much more aware
I've becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

Can't you see that you're smothering me
Holding too tightly afraid to lose control
Cause everything that you thought I would be
Has fallen apart right in front of you
(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)
Every step that I take is another mistake to you
(Caught in the undertow just caught in the undertow)
And every second I waste is more than I can take

[Chorus]
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
I've become so tired so much more aware
I've becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

And I know
I may end up failing too
But I know
You were just like me with someone disappointed in you

[Chorus]
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
I've become so tired so much more aware
I've becoming this all I want to do
Is be more like me and be less like you

[Chorus]
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
Is everything what you want me to be
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
Is everything what you want me to be
