I was told repeatedly by my mother that she didn't like me. I inevitably grew up believing everyone one I meet won't like me.

My child has recently started nursery and I thought to myself today: what if they don't like him.

Holy fuck!!!! He is the most wonderful little person. How could I even think this?

It sounds like your mother had really knocked your confidence

As you know, not EVERYONE you meet, is going to like is a fact - you can't make everyone like you.

However some people will like you and love you - and they are the ones to focus on, not the ones who aren't really your cup of tea

Does it really matter what other people think? No it doesn't.

Have you ever had any councelling to help you move on from this. If not now might be a good time to look at this.
