I am sometimes naturally confident, and I have suffered with a mental illness for many years now, which affects my interaction socially. So sometimes when I am feeling like I am not feeling confident enough to get through any social interaction, I will fake it until it feels natural. Fake it until you make it lol. And then I end up coming across as arrogant, because I have turned the dial up too much.

Then other times if I am feeling a little low, I will try to talk myself up - because they say that speaking of positive things - is a good way to generate the feeling of positivity within yourself. But then once again I do come off as arrogant.

What would you say about yourself? Are you confident, and come across as arrogant?

That's something I struggle with too from time to time (arrogance, not mental illness). I have a saying: It's not arrogant if it's accurate. Being a braggart is another thing though. I think we all have that tendency to toot our own horns from time to time, keeping it to a minimum should be something to strive for though.
