Isn’t it amazing how hard we are on ourselves?
We judge, and assume others judge us the same way as we do ourself.
And yet, most times people don’t notice - UNLESS they are busy judging themself and using you as a measure, for good or for bad.
Don’t worry if people don’t seem to like you. Most folks are merely struggling to like themselves. And there you are to utilize as a measure, a comparison.
You do the same thing. We all do.
Get to loving everyone around you - and the others will like you a lot…
And you’ll like yourself a lot!
