Struggled with negative energy and not feeling likeable for years . Any advice on how to have a more positive experience with people?

I try to be more open , but it’s like people aren’t interested in me. I always feel like I’m being looked down upon or ignored . If I hear another person do an obnoxious cough next to me I’m going to explode . I’m getting really annoyed and it’s affecting my quality of life . Any advice ??

    You MAY be LITERALLY thin skinned.  Not a judgement but a psychological condition.  Consider looking up Evening Primrose oil.

    Too much 'gets to you'  making you negative.

    With stronger membranes, maybe it changes.

    If YOU don't really feel good, then others will reflect that.

    Our skin, inside and out is BOMBARDED with all kinds of stuff.

    Doctors don't deal with this issue.

    Check the mirror ....I have the feeling you don't like yourself very much.

    Instead of reaching out ...reach inward first 

    Once you like/love yourself you will automatically click with others.
