Which is better for your own sake, to think that most people will treat you well, even if that is not quite true, or to think that most people will treat you badly? If it is the former, then people who discourage you do not have your best interest in mind. Why would they do that? What is the benefit? But what would life be, without the fierce delights of enmity?
If you assume that people are going to like you, they usually will. You might even become friends…..
