I agree there is always a reason, and sometimes that reason is that you have haplessly fallen into the role of proxy for someone else who caused the person harm.

I prefer to clench onto the delusion that I am universally liked.
Its pretty challenging to maintain the delusion when people keep calling me an asshole...or when I come here.

Once in my life I had it happen reciprocally -- I moved into a townhouse owned by a friend who had two of her friends who I didn't know also living there. It didn't occur to me that I wouldn't like any of them, but I realized with a sinking heart that I hated one of them on sight, and she hated me on sight. That's never happened to me before or since, and I can't tell you why I hated her, although we proved not to get along, and eventually I did have reasons. There was no reason to begin with. SO weird.
