I Think People Don't Like Me

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,726 People

    I know nobody likes me.

    I used to be quiet as hell but it just made me an easy target for bullies. I am still shy and socially awkward. I just always assume people don't like me because I am a bit different. I stick out like a sore thumb no matter what I tried.My mother says people like you they just...

    i think people have rejected me

    before i give them a chance. sometimes i think God doesn't like me. my husband is a major cause of my insecurities, as well as my emphasis on what i look like being whether i am acceptable or not (when i am the one who's looking in the mirror, not others). i know this is...

    I Have Ridiculous Insecurities

    My Facebook is proof.

    People never see my posts, or so they say... Fortunately, in some cases, the dislike is very mutual. Very mutual indeed.

    I wouldn't say hate, more like they could care

    less about me. I'm so invisible in there. I work as a caregiver on night shift with another coworker Kathy. We get along great. It's the next shift coming in that gives me problems, particularly 3 people called Teresa, Lydia and letty. Whenever they are here, they only talk to...

    ...or Don't Even Remember Me

    I was one of those girls in high school who just kinda blended in with the background. I had friends who were popular, but I was always on the fringe. I was smart - but not Valedictorian smart. No awards or trophies given to me (okay - confession - I got the French Language...

    I Worry That People Don't Like Me

    As long as I can remember I've felt "different," for lack of a better word.  I try to be a good person and good friend, but find myself consumed by fear that people simply don't like me for reasons beyond my control. As a child, I had no trouble being my silly...

    I don't think, I know.

    Like most of you, people don't seem to like me.

    Or at least not outside of work. Children grown, house paid for, ready for new experiences and...nothing. All I get is Facebook friends bragging about spending time with other people. I can post something fantastic and get 2 likes. On the other hand, my friend posts a complaint...

    I Don't Think I'm Paranoid

    I really believe people generally don't like me, not that I don't understand why sometimes. I can be easily annoyed, and I too often tell people exactly what I think of them. But it seems to me that even people I hardly know tend to give me vibes of dislike, especially other...

    When i do any form of public speaking, people hang on every word i say. I can make people laugh, cry, think deeply...  When i'm with a group of people, it seems like no-one really cares what i say. I listen to them, and that's ok, but it's like they'd much rather...

    Whether it's coworkers or classmates at the University or anyone I'm around, I feel like they all give me weird looks and talk about me behind my back. I'm not sure if they actually do or not, but that's how I feel. I can't trust anyone because I think they will go and tell...

    For years I've had a problem with thinking that those around me, even my friends, don't really like me.  A lot of it comes from isolating myself and perceiving it as being others isolating me.  I just don't know how to shake this feeling and how to open up to...

    Bullies Gave Me Trust Issues

    I've always been a loner. I just don't do the group thing. I think that it made people think I was stuck up or something. And some people thought it made me an easy target. I was mercilessly picked on and bullied in school and as a result I have trust issues. Whenever someone is...

    or when there's need of eye-contact. I think people I know always prefer the company of another person with me and if I angered anyone other people would start hating me. This is the reason I'm afraid of offending others and at the same time wanted to cause them pain. I don...

    I feel like people initially do not like me. I feel like I have to really work to make them like me. Maybe this is why I feel kind of awkward talking to people even over the Internet. I feel like I'm constantly being judged.

    that my friends don't like me. If they don't reply to a message within a certain time or if they don't sound enthusiastic, I assume that they hate me. I get really distressed about it and I feel like I'm worthless and that no one loves me.

    Those that know me regardless of whether or not they like me generally respect me. I know a lot of girls at my school like me(I'm not bring cocky) but I generally can't for the life of me see why.
