This is an old song, a wonderful Dharma song:
"You don't own me, no,
I'm not one of your little toys.
...Don't tell me what to do,
Don't tell me what to say."
As a reminder from time to time, as a practice support, we should sing this song to our life, to body - mind, to others, to circumstances; and they can all sing this to us.
To rephrase something Joko Beck taught, "Your life is not about you..."
"Your life is not your business."
