While I love what YOLO should stand for, I hate what it does stand for. For those of you who do not know, YOLO is a popular initialism among teens and young adults these days, and stands for "you only live once."
While this is a wonderful way to think about life, but it is being perverted by peer pressure -- "Take another shot, YOLO".
That is not living life, that is letting others live their life through you. In that moment, you chose to let someone else steal that moment from you. To have someone steal that part of you for themselves, you are not living your life; you are allowing someone to live a second life through your actions. With that action you become a puppet to their will, and forsake part of the life you only live once.
I propose an addendum, "YOLOSLFY" -- "You only live once, so live for yourself." Sure, it's not as short but I hope more people use it in the future.
