Selfish

X: Why are you doing this?
Y: Because i don't want to wake up ten years from now and realize that my whole life is just an extension of the lives of the people around me; i want to live my own life... i am not going to a be an actor playing out a script offered to me by anyone, whoever it might be.
X: You are very selfish, you know that.
Y: Yeah, much more selfish than all the people trying to manipulate my life and live their own dreams and plans and moralities through me!
