Why can't everyone like me?

It’s a hard pill to swallow, but not everyone is going to like you. Sure, you can pretend you don’t care, but deep down, we all do. It doesn’t matter how hard you try or how good you are, there will still be those, that just don’t like you. You can take solace in knowing that some of the greatest people that have ever lived, had people that didn’t like them:

1.Mahatma Gandhi
2.Martin Luther King
3.George Washington
4.Princess Diana
Heck, even the Jonas Brothers!!!!!!

The great ones are focused. Their concern in what they are doing, as opposed to whether or not what they are doing is popular, is what makes them great. They believe so strongly in themselves, that others beliefs cannot deter them from their convictions.
Stay true to yourself and your beliefs. For every person that criticizes what you're doing, there are others out there, applauding your efforts. People and their opinions come and go, but you can never run away from your thoughts and actions. If you accept who you are and concern yourself with what you want to do, you will be one of the great ones.

Even God has those who were and continue to be, against him.
