Wannabe Elitists vs. Elitists

Townlake Dusk in Summer

The wannabe-elitist constructs and climbs their own social hierarchy based on where their interests and goals lie. A pure elitist sees through those games and considers themselves above all of them. I would like to strive for neither, although it seems impossible. The wannabee-elitist is self-serving and considers those who don’t want to play the game as flakes, or lazy, undriven, not up for the challenge, etc… The pure elitist’s philosophy, however, is prone to ennui, often caused by a rebellion against the wannabe-elitists. I don’t know which one I fit into more. All I know is… nice guys don’t finish last, they just don’t run the race because they don’t understand it or think it’s fleeting.

I’m just so tired of all of it. It’s hard not to imagine what others think of your actions. You can’t make them understand. You just have to not care. That’s the only real power you have.
