Would something be done better if at least one person listened to you more often? You appear to believe that's the case. Yet, when you try to make a point, others might look at you and squint as if they are reading the tiniest letters on an optician's screen. Or maybe you're unaware of an alien language you speak. In any case, you can expect to be listened to - and understood - now.
Try to dial back any need to prime yourself for something confrontational. You could be prone to seeing something unrealistically or exaggeratedly that could lead to drawing one very inaccurate conclusion. The past is not a strict guideline for the future. What you may have been unable to control previously is likely to be more manageable now. You can - and should - trust that.
