RANDOM MUSING: CONFIDENCE vs. ARROGANCE
Recently I watched interviews with two of my least favorite people in entertainment, Kanye West and P Diddy. These interviews got me thinking about what the real meaning of confidence is. I believe a truly confident person does not have to tell you how great they are....their body of work will speak for itself. I think I'd rather have someone tell me "I'll give it my best shot" versus saying "I know I can do this", therefore if they don't accomplish the job, I'm not overly disappointed. A truly confident person does not publicly embarrass others whom they feel they are superior to. A truly confident person does not bitch or whine when things do not go their way....they just make a vow within themselves to do better the next time. A truly confident person is never a sore loser but instead congratulates the winner and if they are disappointed, they will never show it. A truly confident person never brags about how much they pay for merchandise, they let the quality of the items speak for themselves. A truly confident person is never overly flashy or gaudy......you make the outfit, don't let the outfit make you.
A lot of people are lonely and sad because they let someone with these fake "swagger" (as the kids call it today) traits into their lives. If you meet anyone who possess these traits, I say "RUN for your damn life". These type of people are usually highly insecure and use these tactics as a coverup. They are usually too self-absorbed to love anyone else besides themselves. They will draw you into their madness and swallow you whole.
