I have been thinking about this a while. This is something that came up during an emotional intelligence course I was taking through work. I had to get my coworkers and manager evaluate me. This was pretty dreadful but somehow I ended up getting rated the highest on ‘relationship management’ which was surprising to me as well. Anyway, that was just a little backstory to what led me to this topic.
I thought it would be fun to explore this topic a bit further.
So, back to the original question, I posed above:
“People you don’t like, guess what..?”
The people that you don’t like. The way you behave around them, the way you act unconsciously, subtle facial expression or gestures, no matter how hard you try to hide your feelings – they KNOW!
And guess what? They actually don’t like you back either. Unless you are oblivious to this, you will somehow know or get a vibe that says ..”that person doesn’t like you” and you end up not liking them back either.
Somehow it is mutual! You can try to get this person to like you or change their mind, and it is not impossible, but unless that person is really important to you, please don’t waste your energy on getting people to like you. People that like you and love you and ARE already part of your life will make every effort to be in your life.
For me, I would say, appreciate the ones that are in your life, cherish them.
Stay away from people that are negative and already don’t like you (as much as you can). I understand at work sometimes you have to work with people you don’t like and that’s when you use professionalism 🙂
Remember, what people think of you shouldn’t be any of your business. It is generally a reflection of what they are. I talked about this in my post Three Quotes Tuesday # 1 – Update as well. One of the quotes was “I stopped explaining myself when I realized people only understand from their level of perception.”
I think my answer to the question would be:
“People you don’t like, guess what ..they don’t like you either?”
Have you ever thought about this? Do you care about getting people to like you?
Have you had this gut feeling where you knew someone didn’t like you?
Do you try and get them to like you?
What do you usually do when you know people don’t like you?
