How can I become more confident with myself?

It's not that I care how other people see me. It's more about how I see myself. Everyday I try my hardest to look beautiful, like most girls do. I've become obsessed with this image of perfection that seems to be unattainable without surgery. I feel like I'm pretty attractive, maybe around average, but I tend to dwell on my flaws. I see my good qualities and I appreciate them, but I can't help but notice my flaws more. How can I stop this? I just want to learn to be happy with the way I am but it seems impossible.
