Vanity is a term used to describe the excessive self-confidence in oneself or the belief in one’s ability to perform a task. It is often associated with self-improvement, but vanity does not always have to do with self-improvement. In fact, it is generally the belief that you are so much better than everyone else that you do not need their help. This was the case until the 14th century when it did not take vanity to lead a man into trouble.
How to replace a vanity?
Vanity was just an excessive self-confidence, which had the tendency to lead to excessive pride, a lack of respect for others, and a need to be worshiped. Before that time it had only the narcissist undertones, which implied vanity and self-doubts, but only because it was considered a harmless form of vanity by those who practiced it.
Self-confidence can also mean believing that no one can do anything better for you than you can, so if you are capable of doing something then there is nothing wrong with the rest of the world and it is up to you to prove them wrong. This belief is often the cause of a lot of frustration, as well as having the tendency to lead to an unhealthy sense of self-worth. One of the most dangerous forms of self-confidence is when a person will try to convince others that they know better than everyone else about how to succeed.
