Two Selves

Do you keep up with Humans of New York? I was clearing out my old bookmarks today and found this gem:
I wish I’d partied a little less. People always say ‘be true to yourself.’ But that’s misleading, because there are two selves. There’s your short term self, and there’s your long term self. And if you’re only true to your short term self, your long term self slowly decays.
It reminded me of another quote I came across recently. "You have two lives. Your first life ends when you realize you only have one life."
