A lot of our relating is nonverbal. I know that for those people who don't treat you decent, it's on them. Technically, they are still your coworkers. I seem to remember people being decent to our school janitors, so there may be nonverbal stuff going on first. You have to go into things with an open mind and be able to shrug stuff off - block negative thinking. It's hard to do, but what we are thinking can cause changes in demeanor/facial expression and we don't even know it.
I had someone in college who, after getting to know me, said I looked angry all the time and was afraid to talk to me. I was anxious about getting through college, and did feel rejected by people in there.
The weird part about that was, there was a time I actually talked to a few people who I felt rejected by, and they were pleasant! It was as if they were surprised I could speak.
Our thinking can cloud things pretty easily and then we get a shock that it's not what we thought it was.....my counselor calls it "limbic lag" - the time between when you learn something isn't what you thought it was to when your mind and body accept the new truth. Then, there's like a "guilt" for thinking wrong which also has to be worked through, but you have to roll with it at that point so you don't get stuck.
Anyway, psychology aside. I would try to look at things in different ways and be a bit more objective.
