is it worth living

My question "is is life worth living when you live it for someone else?"
There are a number of ways we live our lives for people, it could be for a parent, a sibling, a spouse, a friend and sometimes for people we have never never seen or heard from, one could even live for the general public.

A lot of ways of life have been forced on people especially female, we have always been told how it has always been done in the past and how it should be in the future, be it right or wrong; when most of these rules are only meant to confine the woman while making life easier for them.

A young woman is been told her life will only be complete when there is a man in her world; she will then be criticised as being barren if children are not forth coming. Then she forgets her person and want to live up to the standard of others while dying in unhappiness. Couldnt she have stayed on her own and still live to the fullest?

I also find that in most cases, women are the first to criticise a fellow woman whether she had done well or otherwise; shouldn't a woman be light in some dark world, shouldn't she the one to better understand the pains of a colleague?

DO NOT create a thread of sadness in another world but be happy.

I believe a woman should be allowed to live her life but she should endeavor to take decisions that are morally right without the limit of societal views. My sister would reinforce this christian belief "on the judgement day, each person will account for his or her deeds' so why account for what someone else wanted you to do.

I believe life should go just like this "live and lets live"
