i often worry that people at college or friends, dislike me, i look for the little things that could signify that they might not like me. it is often small but things like; them not asking me to come to the canteen with them or not entering my name onto the list of friends in our forum. Things like this often make me worry all night about the fact they might not like me.
I am one of the people in the class that makes people laugh and could be called the class clown. But worry that sometimes people are not laughing with me but at me.
Also if someone is quietly talking to someone else i always assume it is about me.
I try to be nice to everyone but if someone is not happy i always assume their bad mood is my fault and is directed at me.
There is one girl in college that is not liked very much and i worry that i could be just like her and people secretly hate me.
Do any of you worry about stuff like that.

I feel the same way, which I think kept me from being able to make any good friends because I was convinced they just talked to me because they felt sorry for me. And I also feel that when people are whispering or laughing it is about me, even though they may not even know me. I wish I had some advice for you...I don't know how to tell if someone really likes you or how to just stop worrying...

All the time. It's essentially paranoia. For me, a combination of meds and CBT has helped, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't think about it more than I should.
