When you have a cause that is close to your heart, you can be passionate about helping people see your point of view. Whether it is politics, society, health, wealth, animals … however worthy what you have to say is, if you wrap it in guilt-inducing, passive aggressive statements or judgments, you will not win your argument. Instead, you will alienate those whose minds you want to change.
I know how difficult it is to get the balance right and how emotionally draining it can be to care about something so much but that others seem to easily ignore – but screaming louder isn’t a good use of your energy. Make it easier and gentler for people to come along with you, which is far more successful than having them there because they feel guilty.
