For years I have been obsessed with my face.Ever since the 10th grade where I took pictures of my face and discovered my facial assymetry I can't accept myself.The right side of my body is bigger than the left one and it's because of my jaw.Apparently,I should've worn braces.Most people tell me it's not noticeable and that I look good but I freak out when I get "You're not my type" or stuff like that.I start imagining that I'm really ugly and that my assymetry is the reason.

I don't know,I kinda became dependant on other people's attention as reassurance that I look good and if I don't get it I start falling appart.What should I do?
