It’s important to remember that not everyone you meet is going to like you. I mean you don’t like everyone you meet do you? Sometimes you might not even know for sure that the person doesn’t like you. A snarky comment from a teacher, a dirty look from the guy in the car next to you, or a crosscheck in the back of the head from opposing hockey player. All these could be a signals you perceive as signs of dislike.Maybe be there is reason behind the dislike maybe not. Sometimes it’s hard not to return this supposed contempt in kind (I struggle with this). Although it’s hard not to feel this way I find that it’s best to turn the dislike into motivation. Prove to that person that you are a good person, that you do want learn, and that you are hardworking and kill them with kindness. This might not remedy their dislike for you but it is certainly a useful tool for success. Instead of saying “you’re an idiot” be the bigger person and use some compassion. Maybe it’s dumb to worry about people disliking you. Maybe you should just focus on you or not assume hate where there might not be any. Maybe all you can do is just continue being good to the people around you and hope for the best. In any case I think it’s hard for us or at least myself to just forget it because we are so social as people. It’s natural to seek approval to some extent.
