Don’t expect people to understand where you come from 100%. This is because 100% of the time people are only looking for the percentage to “agree” what they’ve heard or have been told. Don’t tell a story if no one is willing to listen, accept and understand you.
You shouldn’t always be selfish but this is one moment where you’re allowed to. If they choose not to listen, they are choosing to be foolish; to stay full bellied of lies.
