i've been trying to overcome my insecurities and love myself but sometimes i feel very conscious about my heirght, scars and fat cheeks like "uhhhhhhhh i do not like it nooooo" kind of feeling lol
Have you ever felt this way? How did you over come your insecurity?

There is nothing wrong with your cheeks from some of the other more devious photos you have posted of yourself :)
But anyway! How to overcome insecurities?
This is not an easy thing. The first part is finding out how the insecurity works. When is it felt? When did you first feel it (could be early childhood)?
Then try to think why this insecurity is there.
Finally after analyzing, come up with a message to tell yourself everytime you start feeling that insecurity. A message that is not a sham, but one that you reasoned out. One that says you don't have to be that way anymore. Continue to reinforce yourself about it.
Grieving may or may not be necessary, depending on the insecurity. Do what seems good to you.
Hope this helps!1

Okay... I have the same problem. I struggled with acne in high school badly. I still get acne here and there but not as bad as it used to be. I have scars from it. If it is anything I am extremely insecure about myself, it is my skin. I wait for the day when I won't be so afraid to just go out into public without any makeup on and feel confident while doing it.
Your skin is gorgeous and you are gorgeous. I don't know why you are insecure. :)
I didn't want to do this, but I'm going to do it anyway.
This is what my skin used to look like in 2013 at one point (I'm not wearing ANY makeup. I took this picture one day because I was happy my skin was finally clear in a very long time)
2013 (no makeup, finally acne free)
Me right now (dealing with this shit again)
I felt like I had to share this. I'm not perfect... and I'm okay with that.
I have insecurities of my own, but I'm working on it.5
