Yes, early during our formative years we're likely to adopt the ways of those around us without raising any questions.
Generally speaking however there comes a point where most of us evolve or craft our own life philosophy based upon our actual experiences. Being able to make your own decisions is adulthood.
Nevertheless there are some people who do believe they're not entitled to choose (their own) path. In fact some believe it's disrespectful not to fulfill their parents or family wishes.
It's their way of "thanking them" for giving them life.
The reality is it's a parent's job to provide for their children!
Life is a (personal) journey.
Each of us is responsible for our own happiness.
Your life is to live as (you) please so there's no one to blame.
