Hi everyone. I've just turned 17 years of age and I have a few concerns. I live in Australia! This site seemed interesting so I decided to join. How can I be more confident in how I look? I have strong features, clear skin, thick golden brown hair, and I stand at 5 foot 9 with broad shoulders. I feel confident yet slightly insecure. I don't have low self esteem. I've never had any mental issues. However I'm feeling insecure. My face is too wide. My nose is too straight. I feel very insecure. I can't ever date someone if I don't change my face.

I've never had a girlfriend, which doesn't worry me. I'm happy and content in my own company. I aspire to study Law or Political Science after I finish high School. I enjoy reading. I ride a scooter still at 17 haha. I enjoy bike riding. I've never really used social media. I have a face book account and I only have 12 friends. Everyone else in my life has 1000+ friends on Facebook. I am an only child and my parents are well educated. My dad is an Engineer and my mum worked within International Relations.

How can I have the courage to stop feeling insecure?

Its come with time and experience of different social interactions. Focus on your positives and think about how you can bring them out. Like you mentioned about your hair etc.

If you want to feel confident about yourself, avoid adverts that try to tell you that you must look a certain way
I think you're doing all you can, I cycle too and I gave up on the gym a long time ago.

Some days you will look nice and other days you may not.

Hit the gym, eat 5 portions of fruit and veg per day, drink lots of water.

As another person mentioned think about the positives.
