Self-confidence starts with the SELF part. There is nothing wrong with active hormones at your age. It sounds like the problem is in the comparison of you to others. They are NOT you...the only logical and reasonable way to look at things is a comparison with yourself, you are unique, so unique in fact that it is impossible to compare with others. You eat differently at different times, you learn things at different times, things happen to you that change your perspective. The only thing you have in true common with other people is that EVERYONE is unique. So you can only compare you to you. Each day that you spend agonizing over the opinions of others is a day you don't focus on YOU. Look for people that have skin like yours instead of clear skin, realize you are not alone in feeling this way and look forward, because unless your parents are walking around with acne this will pass, it's not permanent. Feeling bad about yourself because you don't have clear skin YET, is self-destructive. You are a unique and amazing feat of biological wonder, and you are not alone. Parents want what is good for you in the long run, they KNOW that your skin will clear so they cannot see it as such a huge problem because in the long run, it isn't. Right now to you it is and I get it, so look back in your life and think about all of the BIG problems you've had and how you feel about them now...not so big right? Well in a few years this will feel the same...just gotta ride it out.
