    Do you ever feel conceded?

    There are times when we all feel proud of ourselves (at least I hope we all do)... but have you ever found yourself feeling too proud to the point of conceded?  Cocky, overly confident, or just downright having an episode of narcissism?
    Like "Oh my gosh, I'm such an awesome writer... why hasn't anyone commented on my hub yet?  I know it's awesome, where's my praise and adoration from my hundreds of adoring fans?"

    I've done it a few times without realizing it until I look back at how I talked, what I said and how I acted. I don't like the feeling. Being confident is one thing, but conceded is believing you are better than others.

      I think most people have fallen into this trap at one time or another... that crazy human ego... but once we realize what we're doing & correct our behavior, that desire to take it back down a notch really says something I think.

    Momkat, the word you're looking for is "conceited," not "conceded." To concede means to agree that something is true. You might want to edit your title.  Feel free to delete my comment if you fix the error, no hard feelings. smile

      I'm a writer not an editor & my spelling has improve a ton over the years, so I'm alright with making a few mistakes from time to time.  I appreciate you having my ba
