It's popular to say nobody is unattractive, but some people actually are. Even at 30 years old, I still feel very self conscious about my looks (it's bad facial features - not body, so working out won't help).
This isn't looking for reassurance that it's all ok, but more of hearing how people actually deal with the long lasting feelings of inadequacy?

I'm 44 and I battle this feeling!
Worrying too much about looks is exhausting. Is not easy with all the pretty women out there in the world and the complete availability for us to see them. It's like an invasion of pretty women hahaha
Your features won't change. But the way you look at them and the way you look at yourself in general can change. It takes love, respect and acceptance. It has to be a daily routine.
Why would you want to punish yourself for not being pretty? Who is to blame?
Be for yourself, support yourself. It doesn´t matter how many people will tell you you are pretty. If you don't feel it you won't believe it, ever.
Commit yourself to the daily or even hourly routine of telling yourself (in front of the mirror) how much you love yourself and that imperfectly perfect face of yours. It won't be easy. But you will discover things... It's absolutely worth it, I promise you!
We are not Charlize Theron, it hurts yeah so what? We enter a monastery then? What if you wouldn't have one eye? Or be disfigured in an accident?
The sooner we begin to love ourselves, the better. We are not just looks. remember that.2
