Why do I feel like this?

Something I have realized about myself lately is that I want attention from people, yet when anyone gives me even an ounce of love or kindness, I think that I'm not worthy of it. I always push people away, and then am stuck in a cycle of thinking I'm unwanted, when in reality, I don't know if anyone wants me or not because I'm too afraid of being hurt again to find out..

I know this website isn't for therapy or anything like that, but does anyone else feel this way?

The inherent feelings of unworthiness are core values of any ego. You will find that those same feelings will continue to occur for no apparent reason, even if you had not been hurt before. Truth is, being once hurt is irrelevant as to why you feel unworthy today. This is an ego issue, not a relationship issue.
[@332402,swirlie] So, what are you saying, exactly?

We all have an ego. Our ego is firmly established within our personality by the time we are 5 years old. This process occurs between the ages of 2 and 5.

Once established within our personality, our ego basically feeds us the opposite of truth our whole life. Our ego acts like an alter-ego, presenting exactly the opposite personality of whom we really are, while telling us we are the opposite of who we really feel like inside of ourselves.

Even though you are worthy of everything on this earth, your ego will try to convince you of the exact opposite, thus your feelings of unworthiness prevail. If you had a relationship go sour, your ego will always tell you that it was your fault and that you are unworthy.... which is why the relationship ended.

But always keep in mind that the ego always speaks of opposites of truth and the ego always speaks first in our mind, not last.
