Self-Respect

19 Apr

I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and incur my own abhorrence. Self-respect cannot be hunted. It cannot be purchased. It is never for sale. It cannot be fabricated out of the media/public relations. It comes to us when we are alone, in quiet moments, in quiet places, when we suddenly realize that knowing the good, we have done it, knowing the beautiful, we have served it; knowing the truth, we have spoken it and put it into action.

It is the highest form of self-respect to admit our errors and mistakes and make amends for them. To make a mistake is only an error in judgement, but to adhere to it when it is discovered shows infirmity of character, lack of truth and honor within the soul.

Walk of the Grand Vampire Peacock

Walk of the Grand Vampire Peacock

**Wow, this simple yet poignant article, kindled the fire within and encouraged me to spit-ball this short FB/Wordpress article.**

This is what, in my humble experienced opinion, the self-proclaimed, “Elders” of the Vampyre Subculture (Community) should be discussing and working towards (the attached article), during their “meetings,” Meetups, courts, or any venue they attend just so they can spew their drivel.

All this crap that all these “leaders” spend precious breathing time fretting and fighting over and for, is truly meaningless, and only exists so those self-entitled “important persons,” can feel like they matter. How any of these “chiefs” are still, after all their professed wisdom, so very blind, is, well, quite telling of the reality of that culture. How can they not know that all the outside validation of their claims (mostly without any proof) will never equate with true acceptance of self…that must always come from within.

Their very self-entitlement (whether voted into a meaningless position in a meaningless social court, house, or any group within that subculture, or not) is testament to their weakness, to their commitment of spreading poppycock and re-living their flash in the pan moment as if anything they have done or are doing will ever matter, in the grand scheme of what is actually important.

Should not Elders of any community be concerned for their people’s survival? And doesn’t that survival mean that those leaders should be concerned with the greater whole, the worldwide crux of what is truly happening? How can Elders of a group of self-labeled, cocks of the walk, claiming to be more enlightened, and in many cases, reveling in their belief that they are more important than Mundanes, be so unconcerned about what really matters? Worrying about parties and balls and walking the walk (of a douchebag extraordinaire actually), and thinking that they are walking the walk of the grand vampire peacock…nope…douchebag.

Man oh man, you need to wake the fuck up. The world has changed from just a few decades ago and is changing rapidly into its next stage of life. Do you, “Elders,” really think that your Houses and Courts and Social Media Groups, mean anything outside your own vanity and egos? All of which only indicates that your truest characters are lacking of meaningful substance and must use your ego to fool the outside world, but most of all, to hide from your very own truth.

Be mad. Keep your Black Veil over your face. Keep not transcending. Keep being a waste upon our Earth. It is all your choice. You are relics of self-serving double-talk and gibberish.

Apparently, you still don’t get it.
