Can you differentiate when you are confident and when you are being cocky? Sometimes we do not realize what we think is confidence, looks like cockiness to others.

There's a whole different internal attitude, too. Cocky is to believe that you can't be bested. Confidence is the knowledge that it's rare but certainly could happen.

I'm think I can tell the difference. I'm rarely cocky. I think I'm more the opposite.

I think one reason I have low self-confidence is because anytime I start feeling confident I feel like I'm being cocky

Yeah, see same here. Shows we do value how we look and acts in presence of others. But do we do it for them, or ourselves? Or even both?

I've struggled with self esteem issues for so long that at this point I do not care if ppl think I'm too confident. + most of the time I'm 100% joking when I act all arrogant and if people take me seriously I don't wanna fuck with them anyways

Yeah. I have a few friends like that. I take there jokes too literal. But I look at tone, and sometimes sarcasm is tough to identify. You can be very blunt with it, or not at all.
