Not everyone is going to like you and that’s perfectly okay.  

Sometimes we want to be liked by everybody, and that’s just not realistic. I understand the desire to be liked is normal, feeling that it’s necessary that everyone likes you and experiencing anxiety and stress when they don’t isn’t 

Through adulting you learn really quickly that even if you try your best not to step on any toes there will always be people who don’t like you, the work you do, or what you represent or stand for. The moment you stand for or against something you’ve already chosen a side; you’ve made your stance known and some will be in agreeance with you, and others unfortunately won’t. 

You have to accept that you can’t fix another person’s perception of you, and develop a level of confidence in yourself and who you are. 

You can’t control or change someone’s inclination. Every single person on planet earth isn’t going to just like every person they meet. And just because someone doesn’t like you on a personal level, doesn’t make you a bad person. It just means that that person has a personal preference that they believe you haven’t met.
