Default Feeling ugly root cause to all of my problems

Ever since I was a kid I've been very insecure about the way I look. My nose bothers me the most. It looks something like Gerard Depardieu's nose. It has prevented me from going out and I was a shut-in for a while. During that time I've missed on a lot of things. I have no social skills. I was considering rhinoplasty but i have a feeling that even with a nose job I would still be ugly so why even bother. I don't want to look pretty I just don't want to look deformed. Still even though I hate it myself I would feel like I was confirming and changing myself because of other people.
