It's our flaws that make us human. Most people have something about themselves that they hate, I do too, but fretting about it doesn't achieve anything. It's a waste of your energy. Sometimes you just have to accept what you have and that it's not going to change.
Oh and I know what it's like to really, really hate an aspect of your appearance. So much so that I've considered plastic surgery. Even though everyone says my flaw is not noticeable, I know it is! But I've sort of realised that there are better things to think about. How many of your idols are physically perfect? Would you rather be a vapid, beautiful person with no intelligence or insight, or someone much more average looking with a real chance to make an impact on others and achieve something lasting.
You say your friends see you as fun and outgoing... lots of people would kill to have a personality like that! I know I would, being rather shy. Try and focus on what you do
have going for, rather than what you haven't, and you might see that things aren't quite so bad after all.
Hope this helps.
