Hmmm... My therapist in CBT mode would say that whenever you hear "nobody" or "everybody" or "never" or "all the time" coming out of your mouth, you should probably look for some distorted thinking.
I wouldn't do that to you. :)
But you aren't disliked here. People care about you.
On the other hand, I think people here care about me, but I find myself socially shunned in person. On the other other hand, how socially shunned I am has to do with a lot of things. Where I am, who the society is, how anxious I'm feeling. I struck up a perfectly nice conversation with a perfect stranger today, who didn't show any signs of wanting to shun me.
Soooo.... Maybe you can narrow it down some?
