If you pin them back somehow they will stop sticking out, or stick out less. I know a couple kids from primary school who used to wear their hats with their ears being squashed outwards and now their ears are always like that, but i'm sure like lil weasel said you could squash them back in, You could wear a head band for a few weeks and see if it makes a difference.
Did it, doesn't work. I think the ear cartilage is shaped in the first years of our existence and therefore it's probably impossible to reshape it by tieing a band on your head.
I don't know if it'll help, but it really is all in your head. Until High School I had long hair that covered them, but I looked really greasy and ugly with long hair on that body, so I cut it short. It wasn't much of a problem; I was a little bummed about losing the hair I had been growing for three years, but I think I look a lot better with short hair.
One thing that helped was looking at other people's ears. Notice how many of them have big (or small, or oddly shaped) ears, and notice that it took looking for them to notice it in the first place. It's such a minor thing to be holding you back.
That's what I've been doing but doesn't really help.
I think I became self-conscious at a point, I don't know why, just know that before never had this problem. Oh I can tell you that when I was a kid around 3-4 y/o, my grandmother would call me "Big earred" when she was annoyed.
