Of course we all want to be liked, but the truth is that not everyone will like you – you don’t like everybody you encounter do you? Of course not, it’s normal.
When you want to be liked by everyone it’s likely that you’ll do all kinds of things that don’t necessarily feel good to you just so that people will like you or be nice to you or will see what a good person you are. This often leads to disappointment when others don’t respond in the way you want them to or hope they will.
When others don’t treat you the way you think they should – or are not nice to you, it can upset you and trigger a sense of not being good enough.
If this idea feels difficult for you, try this affirmation:
I release the need or desire for others to like me, understand me, or be nice to me.
The beautiful thing is that when you release the need for people to like you, you’ll actually find that more people do like you. Because you’re not trying to get people to like you, you’re just being yourself, which will draw more people to you. There is great freedom in this.
