If there is a legitimate reason for someone disliking you, you have an excellent opportunity for self-improvement … (but) no matter what you do, you’ll never please everyone. If you try, you will get extremely frustrated. The human tendency is to focus on and attempt to mollify those people who don’t like you. This is a distraction, since you concentrate on pleasing a select few who will never be happy. While you are trying to please the few who don’t like you, you are ignoring those many others who do like you. Additionally, the time you waste responding to inane comments is time taken away from the pursuit of your goals.

Ironically, the harder you try to please these people, the worse they get. There’s nothing you can do to win them over. Whatever explanation you offer, they will have a retort to justify their position. Logic, facts, and reality have no bearing on how they feel.
