    So, what is the line between being confident and being boastful? What's the difference?

    The difference is in "marketing". A confident person lets their actions speak for them. A boastful person has to let everyone know how great they are at every opportunity. Now, a boastful person may think they are confident, but their need to advertise this shows their insecurity. See Donald Trump.

    On an unrelated note, look carefully at the words "boastful", "boast", "boasting", etc. It strikes me as one of those words that looks weird the more you look at it.
