Reply To: Make 50% of the people around you hate you
it’s not being an asshole or aggressive. you can have genuine intensions yet people will hate you just for having an opinion.
to give you a few examples:
1. let’s say you’re an older guy and you have a girlfriend half your age, people will hate you for it.
2. let’s say you’re in the movie theatre and you calmly tell the kids in front of you to be quiet bc they’re talking loud, they’ll hate you for it (yet the people next to them, will like you for it).
3. let’s say you go to the supermarket and say “hi, how are you?” (in a nice, kind way) to a woman, there’s a good chance she’ll hate you for it.
it comes back to what i said in my recent post about ‘the mindset’ in general how conflicts of interests happen. this is just the reality. interact with enough people and you’ll know what i mean. the only way people don’t hate you is if you lock yourself inside your house and don’t talk to anyone.
and if purposely trying to make everyone like you, then most likely you’re accommodating their interests, not your own.
