Conflict of interests

1) KeY wants to get a bike license.

2) I think motorbikes are dangerous for riders regardless of skill.

3) I think that a bike license will inevitably lead to bike-riding.

4) I also believe that I should not impose my desires on others - they should have free choice.

5) I've told KeY my thoughts about bike-riding.

6) She still seemed keen.

7) I was conflicted and unhappy. I told her about point 4 as well, and my internal conflict.

8) She promised not to.

Did I violate point 4? How does point 4 work when other people's actions can have severe effects on my own happiness? Am I just scared of having to go through life alone?
