People hating others are often hated themselves. Maybe you should stop caring about words from people and concentrate on your own Happiness. Don't bother others, live you live to the fullest and go on with yourself as the person you are :-)

It's not about being hated, it's about caring about what other's opinions are. It doesn't matter what others think, it's about whether or not YOU'RE happy. Everyone has haters, it's human nature to have negative vibes towards others. So be yourself, because that's the best you that you can be.

I doubt that everyone actually hates you, but if by some chance they actually do, there is probably some very specific story behind it, so the answer would have to be pretty specific.

You cannot stop people from hating you but you can try to realize that many people you think hate you, most likely do not hate you at all. You can learn ways to cope with some peoples dislike of you.

Sometimes, if everyone hates you, you may have to try making friends, because most likely you will find a group of people that don't hate you, because it is unlikely everyone hates you.

Well just be yourself and people do not like who you are then they really don't want to be near you but the true people will come to you soon

The one thing people worry about, is others hating them. To them I have to say, don't prioritize hate, but do, love. Only when you learn to love yourself, are you able to understand what other people dislike about you. Only when you learn to love yourself, are you able to distinguish which opinions are worth taking into consideration. If you don't love yourself, no one else will.

YOU CAN'T! You can't stop people from hating you, the same way as you can't stop people from talking about you either. What you can do is learn to deal with it. But something I believe is that, not everyone hates us, we just don't know how to accept or be loved. Why don't you first try to love yourself, then you will notice that people don't hate you.

You can't control others' feelings, but you can control how you act. Don't change the way you are just for someone else, but if you have a bad attitude in general (it's fine to admit!) then it would be a change to consider.

You can never stop anyone from how they feel about someone but you can just become someone who is always happy and never starting anything and just get a friend or two to realize not everyone hates you.

I don't think EVERYONE hates you, I know I don't. But if there are people in your life who you think or know have a problem with you, just talk about it! Work things out. If they are too mean and refuse to make the situation better or work towards it, leave them.

No one can stop anyone from hating anyone. That's just the way human nature works. You definitely cannot stop anyone but instead you can try making friends with people who share similar interests, also it is physically impossible for EVERYONE to hate. The chance of that ratio is zero to none. There's just too many people in the world for you not to have at least now who likes you. So don't dwell on that thought and just focus on meeting people with similar interests! Good luck and take care! ~L

You are never going to please everyone, unfortunately. But the best way to make people like you is to show yourself kindness and respect. If you treat yourself kindly and build up your self-esteem, others will be more likely to like you and want to be your friend. As cheesy as it sounds, faking it until you make it can be an useful tool. When you smile and act confident, then you start to feel happier and more confident. However, if you are struggling with a mental illness, bullying, or other issues, please do seek help and talk about it with someone you trust, because suffering in silence never helps. I wish you luck.

Not everyone is going to like you, and as much as that sucks...… there isn't a whole lot you can do about it. You are asking how to make "everyone" stop hating you, but I'm pretty sure your misinterpreting things or taking things out of context. I'm sure that there are lots of people who like you. Don't try and make people like you, because that will only make things worse. People either like you, or they don't, and there really isn't anything that you can do, or say to change that. Just be yourself, and people will love you for who you are. Good luck!

you can stop everyone from hating you. you are human, you are not perfect. There is bound to be someone that will hate you no matter what. So, don't waste your time trying to please others. But if everyone is hating you, there must be something wrong. Either you have the victim or persecution complex (like you felt being wronged by everyone) or you are a bit different. If you feel that people hate you, list down things that you think they hate you about. from your list, think carefully for each item, whether it is something that you can change. If you can change it, then change it.

Well, what to do really depends on you but when I was going through this problem, I was really panicking, I just had this feeling that everyone was talking behind my back and that no one liked me. But then i realised that i didnt really need their approval. As far as I was happy with myself and as far as I liked me, I was fine. And guess what? I started being more confident with myself and I started walking with my head held high. And I took the bold step to try and make friends. Trust me, that part was really hard but at the end of the day, it was all worthwhile.
