Hi Tyra --- actually, that's a rather adult / mature / grow-up sort of question to ask, so the task ought not to be too difficult ! Counselling could help greatly, espeially of the CBT ( Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ) form. It would help you understand this need to be liked ( no always as essential as it feles as though it must be ) and learning more effective ways to enjoy being yourself, acting your age with confidence and pleasure, and being liked for far more valid reasons.
