Vain or confident…Let’s just focus on the negatives.

Is it wrong to be vain ? Where is the line between vain and confidence of performing well ?
Why is it so socailly unaccepted to be able to say that you are good at something. Being confident you are said to have a large ego (which is viewed as a negative thing).
 However admitting your faults and complaining about difficulties is seen as normal.
It seems that is better to be negative, because if you aren’t people will be negative towards you (or worse behind your back.) It seems that no one likes a winner that beats them !
