Confidence not Cockiness


Hey Peeps .
Today I wanted to talk a bit about confidence versus cockiness. Trust me when I say that those are two very different things. You see having confidence in yourself is a firm trust in yourself and whatever it is that you might do. Confidence is trusting in your abilities. Confidence is what enables you to do something without fear of what others might say to you because you know within yourself that could really care less. Confidence is being able to walk in a crowded room wearing the most outrageous outfit and saying to yourself "Damn I look good!"

 Having said that, let me tell you about cockiness. Cockiness; also known as overconfidence, arrogance, vanity, egotism or my personal favorite Bigheadedness.
 *I doubt that last one is a word but still*
The thing with cockiness is it will make you think that you're better than everybody else. And if you're like me, then you know that cant be possible because on this earth we are all equal. Some people might say "What's wrong with being cocky?" and to them I will say:
The problem with being cocky is that you have no sense of humbleness. When that happens you tend to have no respect for others and its all downhill from there.
Yeah, I guess that's all I had to say. I hope that didn't come across "preachy". It's just something that's been bothering me lately. 
Anyways, bye for now folks.
