Why do I see myself as cringy and weirdly?

Everytime I see myself on video or on a picture I just cringe. Sometimes I question: Do people have the same kind of thoughts about themself? Do they see themself cringy and weirdly on video, like Youtubers? I think it has to do with the way I expect to look/see myself act versus the reality, which in most cases doesn’t match up. When I talk with my friends then they look normal to me, but when I try to visualise on how I look, I find myself cringy. Is it because I’m not used to seeing myself or is it the way I am? With acts I mean facial expressions, handmovement, flexibility etc.

I dont like to hear the sound of my own voice played back to me. It feel so awkward to listen to, I cant really stand it.
