When people don’t like you, sometimes, somehow, you look inwards to do a soul-search, and to see if you’ve done anything wrong, so that you can make amends. If you aren’t careful, you’d become so critical of yourself to the extent of being so self-negative. Sometimes, when you search within and evaluate yourself, you can’t really see anything that should make a rational human being hate you. At this point, you must understand that ‘when people hate you, you’re not always wrong. They just can’t stand you being right.’
Being right upsets some people. Being truthful and wisely honest irritate some people. They just want you to be in their corner, even when they’re conspicuously wrong. Don’t give in to them, and don’t give up on your values. Stand up and be counted, and even if they don’t count you, keep standing!
