New Goal: Accept Myself As Unlikeable
I have a new goal. My old goal was to hopefully make friends who like me. But that was always a tumultuous ride of hopefulness followed by feeling terrible and disappointed. I'm thinking I'll try to accept myself as unlikeable. Then when I see others that are liked a lot I don't have to feel so sad, and I don't have to feel so disappointed when I'm not invited anywhere, or nothing I say on facebook is liked, and nobody is interested in being friends. I have talked about this in therapy in the past and the therapist always jumped right to some statements about what is good about me. They don't get it. These are empty statements. I think my turmoil would end if I could accept myself as an unlikeable person and be at peace with this. Is it possible?
