Words are the mightiest tool of manipulation. If you can support that with actions no one can fault, sound reasoning, and positive intentions… you will know why everyone hates you.
…the YOLO-inspired “life is short” mantra falls short for the ordinary Joe. For while Drake and his “25 mil” are all about YOLO “every day, every day, every day,” you are not Drake nor are you sitting on a cool $25 million. Thus to live a perpetual life of YOLO is simply unrealistic. Instead, as Kevin Spacey’s character philosophizes at the end of American Beauty, one should simply let the immense beauty of the world “flow through you like rain” as opposed to “fill you up like a balloon that’s about to burst.” For while life is short, life is also very long, and it’s kind of cool that we get to live it at all.
