When i asked "why wasn't i invited?" I was told "everyone" thought I was annoying. Honestly I can be annoying and probably should switch to decaf.
Though I felt devastated. I swore I would spend the rest of my life trying to be likable. I eventually realized certain persons simply will not like you no matter what you do. You have your own unique personality which means some people will love and adore you, while others may not.

it's difficult to keep your perspective in check when you find you're, say, left out of invitations to happy hours with co-workers, or getting noncommittal responses from potential new friends, or you overhear your roommates bad-mouthing you. Rejection is painful in any form, whether it be social or romantic, and it's a big ego blow to get bumped from the inner circle.

We have preferences in terms of personality, and that's not to say that your personality is bad. It's different from mine, and I prefer to hang around people who are similar to me.

Either way, likability has a lot to do with what you bring to someone else's table, whether or not you realize it.
