People often compare yolo and carpe diem, but I think they actually convey different messages.

Carpe diem, in the context of Horace’s ode, comes from a place of caution: you shouldn’t build up elaborate hopes for the future, since you may be fated to die any day. Therefore, it’s most sensible to live each day to the fullest in the present (which, to Horace, is pretty much relaxing and drinking wine by a nice stream under the shade of an arbutus tree).

Yolo, on the contrary, encourages risk-taking: “you only live once,” so you should take advantage of opportunities, do impractical things, or act recklessly, because otherwise the moment might pass you by forever.

I think the two are conflated so often because of the most common English translation of carpe diem, “seize the day.” “Seize the day” sounds a lot like yolo, implying that one should take advantage of the day’s opportunities with decisive action. The Latin phrase carpe diem, though, literally means “pluck the day” (as in picking fruit or flowers), and is part of a series of agricultural motifs in Horace’s ode—it means something more like “enjoy the fruits of the day.”

Excellenter! Gratias, quod hoc scripsisti!

No matter how much you like to help people, help yourself first. If that means establishing limits on what you do, how you do it, and how you are accessible to get it done, then do so. Without apology. You don’t owe the world a favor. You owe yourself everything.

So don’t mortgage yourself to try to maintain a false standard that benefits those that won’t even try while grinding you into dust. You know your limits. Set your boundaries accordingly. Keep yourself safe.

There will always be those that demand more from you than what you are willing to give, or sell. They will be loud in your face and all caps in your inbox. They will not be satisfied until they have wrung out every mote of worth out of you and then they will spit on the dregs and say you weren’t ever good enough. Don’t give them anything. Delete them, remove them, erase them from your presence as best as you can.

Then continue being magnificently you.

You are more than enough. 

Thank you.

amazing that there are living humans out there who have chosen to label other groups of people “justice warriors” and align themselves as directly opposed to them. opposed to justice. look in the mirror. tell yourself “i hate justice”. do you feel like a batman villain yet.
