What's a good way of not feeling so self consious and to boost a low selfasteam?

I feel self consious to smile cause of my crooked tooth and I have a low selfasteam to start a convo with new people how do I fix it? It's KILLING me inside...

Try to focus on the good aspects of yourself and point out the features that you actually do like. You are very beautiful and shouldn't let something so miniscule as a crooked tooth stand in the way of your self esteem. I know it's hard but just think, something like that can be easily corrected through dentistry at some point. Even some of the most beautiful people you see with gorgeous smiles have had some work done on their teeth to achieve that appearance. Try to look on the bright side and know regardless you are beautiful and deserve to feel good about yourself, sometimes we can become so self conscious about ourselves and something we dislike that we allow it to consume us even when no one else is even noticing it. Sometimes what we think are flaws add character and make us unique. Don't feel down about yourself over it, it's not worth it. I hope you eventually get to that point where you feel better inside.

You gotta love yourself and think you're beautiful. Look in the mirror and say how beautiful you are. Your teeth isn't a major part of beauty it's you:). Look at other girls I'm sure you'll see you're not so bad

The thing is... don't give a fig about what other people think. Are you funny? Cute? Witty? Play to your strengths. And you know what? SMILE! It's contagious! Crooked tooth be damned! I know a lot of people with not the greatest teeth, my boyfriend included, and really... It just don't matter. Have fun you!!! -amanda

Don't worry about it because if people judge you for just one little thing like your teeth, which your getting fixed soon anyway, they are not worth it :) the people who care about you wont judge you :)

Kill your doubt with the coldest of weapons; confidence.

Now a days people are too busy worrying about what society thinks that they hold them selves back and America at this point is in a obesity crisis which you let you know 2 things 1. How much we are holding ourselves back and how many of us (at the least) have issues dealing with peoples personal opinions of us.

Smile as big as you can cause what the world needs more more than anything is humans being humans.

Good question. The idea you should focus on here is to never to question yourself. Being self-conscious can mean you just worry to much. Be confident in your skin. Don't worry be happy. Keep that head up and be open minded to all the positives in your life. Just be glad your living. Ignore the negatives but, always keep them as motivation to do better for yourself in the future. As for your teeth, as a guy I really don't pay much attention to teeth, I focus more on personality and attractions (what make you interesting). Regards.

I usually answer most of these questions with "Jesus". A relationship with Jesus makes everything better. What everyone else said is good too.
