I've realized in life you won't be like by everyone. And as much as you may try there is just something in a person that wires them to not like you, and you can't change anything about it.

    Nothing feels worse than being isolated, especially from downtime. You watched the same game as them, or TV show the night before so why can't you join in on the conversation?
