One of the most liberating feeling you will have in your life is when you realize that not everyone is going to like you no matter how hard you try. No matter what, there will always be people who will dislike you and some who will like you. So the best way to deal with this situation is to stop bothering about other people so much. Come to a realization that it does not matter if they like or dislike you, as long as you like yourself, that’s all that matters.

Everything in life is energy and when you are too focused on if or not the other person likes you and are trying hard to keep them happy so they like you, you are wasting your energy. You can spend this energy in the right manner by redirecting it on yourself. Focus your energy on understanding yourself and on your goals, values and aspirations, so you can work toward living an authentic life instead of living a life of pretense.

The following is a list of quotes that will inspire you to stop worrying about everyone and if or not they like you and instead redirect your focus on things that matter.
