I know what does "Live up to" mean but it's this "yourself" that bothers me in the following sentence:

No one can live up to yourself rightful standards.

So does the sentence mean "No one can live the way you think is right" or this yourself changes the whole picture?

I'm sure it is supposed to be your self-righteous standards. 'self-righteous' meaning "I'm better than anyone else", a sort of holier than thou attitude.

It fits exactly. My mistake. I didn't hear correctly then. Thanks!
