It's no surprise to find everyone glued to their phones nowadays. Texting, surfing the internet, and taking a snap of one's latest agenda via phone has officially become a lifestyle. And yes, taking selfies is added to the routine as well. These days, there's a misconception that taking a selfie makes you narcissistic or vain. However, that's not necessarily the case. A selfie is derived from "self-portrait" and is considered as simply expressing oneself— so what borders vanity and confidence?

Vanity: Posting an influx of repetitive selfies—ones that are obviously taken in the same place and same time. No, angles and poses do not give it a difference.

Confidence: Putting the selfies into moderation and for good reason (e.g. new hairdo or dolled up for a party)

Vanity: Finds the constant need to get everyone's stamp of approval. They're the type who fish for compliments by using captions that opposes to what they truly want to hear.

Confidence: Doesn't ask for reassurance. They believe in themselves and their humble about it. 

Vanity:  They flaunt, show off and/or pose in such a (sometimes sexually) provocative manner. They live and seek for the attention.

Confidence: They know their limits and what is right to share— it's never an act of bravado.

It's hard to pinpoint what makes a person vain or confident and this creates misjudgment among everyone. But there are two words one must remember: admiration and appreciation. A vain person has self-admiration and exudes with pride, while a confident person believes and appreciates oneself. Whether it’s about taking selfies or not, it’s all about putting things in moderation and being mindful about the things we do.

Hello everyone! For quite some time now, I have been a "dye-hard" fan. I always get this urge to change my hair color every other month. My excuse is...it's just hair! It will grow!...
