      Though I love the message and theme of this hub, I'm not sure I'm supposed to make myself "likeable" That already sounds negative.

      What I mean is that friends should gather in celebration of the ups and downs of their partners. So long as the union is a shared one that gives and takes, then it should be a positive exchange.

      However loving oneself is vital! If there is true love of one's self with purity and without arrogance, you will naturally be liked:)

      Hope you visit my hubs:)

      Your idea is nice but being yourself and being at peace with yourself is the first step to being happy, then you attract the friends that fit your and your life.

      Trying to please everybody is impossible first and it leads to Slavery.

      Love and peace to you... hoping you understand, I don't agree with you though I like you for trying to do something nice.
