Needing constant reassurance is nothing too bad, it only means that we need a little more understanding and support and someone to make us believe in ourselves till we are able to do so without their help . Sometimes it's okay to need assurance and for someone to remind us of our capabilities, maybe because our anxiety tells us otherwise , maybe because of our past experiences we are constantly on the edge and need immense amount of assurance that the same events won't be repeated . There's nothing wrong to seek reassurance from others ,till you're able to accept yourself and love yourself as it is , to be able to become Self-assured .

Perhaps you are not confident enough. In my opinion, you may not love and see the worth of being yourself. I have been through similar experiences for a long time. One day, I started taking care of myself. From a small step and gradually to a larger step. I decided to do with taking care of my appearance first, then the room I'm staying, and after building myself up. I realize I have become more confident by taking baby steps to improve myself. I try to read self-help books and videos on youtube. I started to realize things and I just stopped needing reassurance.
