Well then, take the advice or don't.

How can you be positively sure that they don't like you?

Look, I'm just an average woman at home, typing out this answer. I'm not a mind reader nor a psychic or a psychologist. I'm just older than you and been there, done that.

When I was young, I was self-conscious like you and thought pretty much everyone was looking at me and was mad at me or despised me.

I went to therapy, and the psychologist advised me to go to college, or change my job, or do something that I liked to raise my self-esteem.

And don't drink or take drugs, because if you're depressed or angry, drinking and drugs just kind of magnify the effects.

If you want to change your thinking, you'll look to change. If not, the thoughts will just circle through your mind and they'll never get solved and you'll never get an answer and you'll believe in these negative thoughts several more years. And your outward appearance won't attract anyone - it'll repel them, just like it's doing now.

You can sense it. That's it? The entire world hates you, because you can sense it? You are either playing a sick game, or you are certifiably paranoid and really believe the world is out to get you. Either way, you're screwed. Get help.
