    Is there any actual evidence that your friends don’t like you? Are there solid facts to support this? Or is it just a feeling? Sometimes feelings are not based on reality, they can be based on our interpretation which isn’t necessarily the true picture. One aspect of low self-esteem is when we underestimate ourselves. This can lead us to believe that other people don’t like us. Remember, it may just be a belief, not an actual reality.

    The most important relationship you have is the one with yourself. If you like yourself, from the inside, then you may not fear that other people don’t like you. Each day remind yourself of your unique talents, skills, abilities. When you evaluate yourself, be kind and gentle with yourself.

    Hey ss99. I used to get that feeling a lot when I was in school – and then I realized, if the friends that I have are making me feel this way, then they’re not worth having as friends! I feel like it’s better to have no friends than fake friends. Try meeting some new people, and avoid getting tied down into a clique or group of girls who you don’t really have any close bonds with. Trust, me it’s a big waste of your time! Also, if you feel like maybe you yourself aren’t happy with the person you are, try living by this quote : “be the kind of friend you want to have.”

    If you don’t feel secure in your friendships & if you get vibes that they don’t like you- then are they really good friends? In my opinion, you should feel happy, secure, and stable in friendships and if you don’t feel that way, then its a waste of time surrounding yourself with those people! Real friends emulate warmth in a way that won’t make you frequently doubt your friendships with them. Try branching out to other nice people!
