If you are angry because people are obstructing your goals that is natural. If you dislike who they are as human beings that may not be helpful to you. How I view other people can also be a reflection of how I see myself.
You can't help how you feel. It's what you do with your feelings that matters. You are going to dislike people. We all do. Just be polite. You don't have to hang out with them or try and make yourself like them.
It would appear we are made with both affect and judgment, which implies we can decide whom to like, and how intensely. "Love your neighbor as yourself," says the Great Commandment. The question is, not who is our neighbor, but whom are we a neighbor to? The Jews hated the Samaritans, yet Jesus praised the Good Samaritan, showing that we can transcend our petty hatreds if we wish, and we are asked to do so.
Hi! This may be a bizarre comparison, but try this on for size. How could you have people you like without comparing them to people you don't like. Example: You like to open doors for girls and you like to skateboard and swim. You will tend to surround yourself with people who have similar interests. You don't like people who swear, make excuses for everything, don't like the outdoor sports. You will tend to not hang out with those people. If you didn't have a comparison, you wouldn't be able to discern who and what you like to spend your time with! You can't have a positive without a negative. I hope this didn't confuse you. But, if you don't agree with someone's behavior, just avoid them! Have a great day!

It is okay to dislike people, but do not be angry when others dislike you, and if you dislike people for reasons you must dislike yourself if you do what make you dislike people, but if you dislike without reasons you dislike and it is okay for you that others dislike you then your dislike is disliked, so better you dislike to just dislike.
