I struggle with the confidence and being prideful or vain. When I look in the mirror and I feel confident and that I like the cloths I am wearing and feel that I look good in general, I then feel like I am being vain. I know it is good to be confident and comfortable in your own skin, but what does that look like? I do not want to be vain or prideful. What is the balance and what should confidence look like? What do you guys think?

I think that there’s nothing wrong with appreciating the way that you look and the clothes that you have. I think that you cross the line if you are obsessed with looking better than others. Or at least that’s the way I see it. If you look in the mirror and think “I am beautiful”, there’s nothing wrong with that. If you look in the mirror and think “I am prettier than my friends”, I think that’s when it turns to pride.

^^ I love that answer!
If you go to church and think, well I have longer legs then that girl, I have prettier eyes then that girl, ect. That is pride. 🙂

That is definitely a good way to think about it! I will try to be aware and work on that. 🙂
