Default my birthmark on my thigh

Hi, this is my first thread here and I have to say I am relieved that I am not the only one. I have a big, dark brownish birthmark on my thigh which really brings my self esteem down. I'm always afraid of wearing shorts or wearing swimming trunks. Btw,I'm a 15 year old indian boy living in Malaysia, so that makes me even more afraid of what people(especially girls) might think of me when they see the real me. Some of my friends(boys) know about my birthmark and they don't really care much about it, but this b-mark restricts me from wearing shorts even during PE (physical education). To top it all, the area of my birth mark is unusually hairy than the rest of my body. What should I do to overcome my fear and start wearing what I want without having to worry what others might think about me?
