Not everyone is going to like you

Not everyone is going to like you, but that doesn't mean you're not surrounded by people who love you.   That's just life. It's taken me years to accept the fact. You won't have everyone on your side, and that doesn't mean there's anything wrong with you. Everyone has their preferences and see's the world differently.

My friend thinks Chanel No.5 smells gorgeous, whereas I believe that it smells like piss. You are allowed to like or dislike whatever you please no matter how great it seems to someone else, and that includes people.

In school, I always had a great set of friends, and while I may have had the odd immature argument, I could happily say I was never bullied or the bully myself. That was until now, looking back as a 20-year-old I didn't have the greatest teenage life. I was bullied profusely, and while it may not have been physical or verbally in person, I was attacked 24/7 on social media.

I always believed I was liked as a person, I didn't think anyone hated me, I hadn't given them a reason to. That was until I signed up to Formspring, an anonymous website that allowed people to anonymously but publically ask you questions. Seems harmless, right?

I have no idea why we all thought it was great. You'd get the odd compliment or flirty message from 'secret admirers,' but before I knew it, I was being attacked online.

It started with ''You're such a bitch' and ended in ' Why do you always post pictures of your baby brother? He should f*cking die just like you.'

I am a strong person. At the time I never let any of it get to me, but I knew I was obsessed.

Obsessively checking and refreshing my account every minute for the next insult. For the next person to say they hate me because I'm annoying, or ugly. It was a vicious cycle I couldn't get myself out of. 

Without going off topic, I guess what I'm trying to say is no matter what you do; someone is going to find you irritating. Sometimes even unbearable, for no reason whatsoever!

While it's taken some time to accept it, I know that I am a good person. I'm a good person to my friends, my family and myself. If someone doesn't like you and you can't think of a reason why then I can promise you they are not worth the time you waste trying to impress them. It's never going to work in your favor.

We all have enemies, whether we are aware of them or not! I have enemies, and at the time of making them I was upset. My best friend will tell you I worry about anything and everything, and this was one of the things that would keep me awake at night. 

I've fallen out with people who were my best friends, and I cried at the time. Now? I've never been happier without them! Everything in your life is happening for a reason; you are on the right path to whatever it is you're destined to do. I don't care if that sounds silly, I believe in it more than anything!

At the age of 16, I deleted my Formspring account after two years of constant abuse. At one point I threatened to get the police involved, the abuse soon stopped, and certain people in school would constantly ask for updates on it. Still to this day, I believe they were the ones who sent them. Where are they now? Just another group of strangers that happen to live in my town. They were never my friends and never will be. Just because people come into your life doesn't mean they have to stay there. I'm much better off without them, in my general life, social life, and career! Karma's a hoe, people.

Don't change for someone who is never going to appreciate who you are. Sometimes it's not their fault; they're just not the person you're supposed to know! Right now, there are over 7.5  billion people in the world. Do you have the desire to know every single one of them? Probably not, and that's perfectly okay.
