How to Handle Not Being Liked

Handle Not Being Liked

People like to be around other people, but you aren’t going to always be around people that like you. This might be someone that you work with, or it might be someone in your group. To keep peace in your relationships, you need to realize that not everyone will like you.

When Rejection Strikes

We are sociable beings, and it is okay to be upset when someone doesn’t like you. This can make you feel vulnerable or weird. This can be a friend, family member or someone that you are interested in. It is good to see that being rejected isn’t an unhealthy thing. Sometimes you need to see this as a celebration because you aren’t having to please everyone.

Rejection means that you just need to readjust your thoughts and your feelings about that person and set boundaries so that you don’t have to deal with them.

Feeling Upset

You are allowed to have feelings when someone rejects you or doesn’t like you. Everything in life has balance. Someone here will like you while someone there might not. The way that you respond to rejection might tell a lot about your self esteem and how you feel about yourself.

Rejection is a normal thing and when this happens, learn to love yourself more and understand where your feelings are coming from.

Don’t Take the Full Blame

Making a relationship work goes two ways. If someone doesn’t like you, you aren’t the only one that can fix this. Rejection happens and you will have it happen again at some point in your life. Don’t get caught up in blaming yourself for not being who someone wants you to be. Keep being yourself and know that sometimes relationships are just hard.

Find People That Do Like You

If you feel that there are people that want to reject you, stay away from those people, and find people in your life that actually want to spend time with you. These are the people that you should give your time to.

Final Thoughts

Being around people that reject you can be hard. Don’t take this personal. Even if you are in an uncomfortable situation where there is someone that doesn’t like you or someone that is rejecting you, think of all the people that do like you and don’t reject you.

Move forward in your life and in your relationships and find people that are going to care for you, for who you are and what you believe in. There are good people in the world, find those people and find peace and happiness.
