We live in a society where vanity is practically celebrated, until you’re locked in a room with said vain person and then it’s not so fun. Are you vain? If you can’t answer with a definitive ‘no’ then go ahead and read these 10 signs. If at least 3 apply to you, well, we’ll chat about that after… 

1) Every conversation steers back to you. 

2) You’re always in the mirror.

3) Your kids are always in the mirror.

4) You hold people prisoner with your conversation.

5) You stay taking selfies. 

6) You think every song is about you.

7) Your’e the most beautiful person you know.

8) Kanye West is your idol. 

9) You refer to yourself in the 3rd person.

10) People who don’t like you are all ‘haters.’ 

Okay, so if at least 3 apply to you, you are vain AF, but it’s not the end of the world. First, forgive yourself for you knew not what you were doing, then do something nice for someone, call a friend and let them talk the entire conversation, and go a week with no selfies. It may not completely cure you, but it’s a start! 
Are you vain?
