If we listen to Society, we would constantly be hating ourselves, changing ourselves to fit in and show that we are worthy of belonging when there is naturally nothing wrong with us.
The truth is there is more things that are right with you than there is wrong.
You have to take a good look at yourself, acknowledge that you are good enough and figure whether or not you are loving yourself the right way.
