Is there a way to publish changes that you've made without publishing others' changes?

Upon trying to publish changes to a confluence page, I received a pop-up that if I publish I will also publish changes by another user. Is there a way to only publish your own changes?

No, it is expected behavior of Confluence Collaborative editing:

Collaborative editing introduces a new type of draft, a shared draft. Previously, when you edited a page but didn't save it, Confluence would create a draft that was only visible to you (a personal draft). Now, Confluence creates a shared draft whenever anyone edits a page. All page editors work on this same shared draft, and it exists until someone publishes the page.
