When I first started acting I thought everyone had to look like Brad Pitt or Channing Tatum or something. Apparently I was oblivious to all the movies I had watched over the years and all the different ages, ethnicities, shapes and sizes that make up the cast of those movies. Sometimes insecurities can cause you to create a false reality. But see, that's what's so great about acting. You can be any shape, size, age, ethnicity because real people are all shapes sizes, ages and ethnicities. You can be weird. You can be normal. You can be an extrovert you can be an introvert. I've always been an extrovert so when I got into the acting world and discovered that so many actors are introverts it blew my mind.
Anyway, all that to say, acting is the worst and acting is the best. The rejection is worth it. Don't compare yourself to other people. Everyone has their own journey. Everyone has scars...some people are just more open about them than others. You can do it! Keep pressing forward. Don't act for applause. Don't act for fame or fortune. Act because it is what you were born to do. Act because any talent that has been given to you is meant to be shared with others.
