Confidence & Conceit

A Fine Line Between Confidence And Conceit

I know several people who think the world revolves around them, the sun rises and sets in their rear-ends, and they are above everyone else. They have allowed themselves to "puff up" in such large amounts that they fail to realize their false sense of esteem. I agree that self-confidence is a good thing, but when pushed too far, it can become the ugliest thing alive: conceit.

There is nothing wrong with being confident in yourself, but when you begin thinking you are above someone else, you've gone too far. It's okay to trust in yourself, but if you start trusting only yourself, you have made a wrong turn. It's fine to think you can do anything, but if you refuse to ask for help when help is needed, you've done yourself no good. There may be times when you will do a great thing and deserve a pat on the back, but needing one too many can leave a sore spot that is hard to rid yourself of.

There is a fine line between confidence and conceit. A line that can be easily crossed if not careful. Thinking too highly of yourself can set you up for terrible disappointment later on. Putting yourself on a pedestal only guarantees a harder fall. We are not perfect and to think so will only result in making our failures seem even more horrific. After all, it is impossible to achieve a conceited man's goals. A healthy balance in confidence is knowing when to be humble, when to give credit where it is due, when to ask for help, and that although you make mistakes, you can learn from them. We all like to feel good about ourselves and there is nothing wrong with that. It's only when you fail to see your imperfections that you fail to see the point.
