    being full of yourself

    where can we draw the line? when is a woman/man proud of him/herself and when are they just full of it? how can one tell what's arrogance and what's just plain old pride?

    i'm having this issues because i've noticed some ppl like this....and i swear it annoys the hell out of me.

    i know, it's all good to be your own number 1 fan but i think arrogance is thinking/ believing that you are better than other people.

    I've always learnt that there are times to be humble and times to be arrogant. Once you
    can understand and utilize those definitions,
    you're good to go!

    I think pride is being confident and carrying urself with a level of dignity etc...Arrogance on the other hand is exaggrating that confidence...that can sometimes be going overboard and thinkin you're better than u really are.

    agreed.. there is nothin wrong with one having pride in oneself.. but when it gets to the point of putting others down in the process that is when it turns into arrogance..

    There's a thin line between confidence and arrogance. To be confident in who you are and what you're about is a wonderful thing. It's when people can vibe off of your positive self and improve themselves with you being the example.

    However confidence turns to arrogance when a person is not held accountable for there actions. If you don't pull someone up who is confident (keeping in mind that they are human and that they too can make mistakes) when they are wrong, the confident person who gets away with the negative will soon turn into an arrogant person because they're not put in check.

    OK, I think I got it.................

    I think that pride can't exist where there is humility. I'm not talking about being proud of your accomplishments, I'm talking about the pride that is haughty and/or high-minded. A humble person doesn't vaunt him/herself. A bragging person like that is the wrong kind of proud. I guess I think that humility is the line to be drawn.
