A lot of teenagers struggle with self confidence, it's natural that we don't always think the best of ourselves, everyone dislikes his own flaws. However it's essential for everyone to try to accept the flaws we cannot change, loving them and taking them as their own.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that you should not try to change something you don't like about yourself, if a certain behaviour you're used to have annoys you, then there's nothing wrong in trying to fix it. Although it is also important not to stress over the tiniest imperfections that only you notice and that you cannot really change.I used to think that, as my ears are too big for my face, everyone stared at them and would laugh and talk about it with their friends, until I realized something: nobody could care less about my ears. Once you realize that people don't really focus on your appearance that much (the same you don't really focus on theirs) you'll start to stop worrying about what others think and you'll begin to learn to love yourself a lot more. The most important thing is for you to be at ease with yourself, it's a long journey for a lot of people, but trust me it's doable.
Moreover, you have to remember that you don't always have to be at the top of your game, you're a human being and you have to allow yourself to make mistakes. Embracing your weaknesses it's no easy task, but being vulnerable it's also the first step towards being strong.
