Do you ever feel like you just want someone to listen to you about something you're trying to say to them?  This can be very frustrating and can leave you feeling helpless.  Some tips to help get you through this: 
1)  Begin by writing out what you want to say (it's important to be honest with yourself on this!).  Using "I" statements can assist with wording
2) Practice saying it to the person before you actually talk to them
3) Picture what they would say back and how you would respond
4) When you're ready to present your case, you will be better prepared
If all else fails and you're still in a pickle- call me!  :)

Take a look.
Yup, you guessed it.
One of his most notable is, An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Let’s talk about that.
Aphorisms can act as a guideline to help narrow the focus of your work.
They’re in social media captions all over the web.
Repeat after me.
Speaking of being safe, that’s another aphorism example that you’ve probably heard before.
You create them.
Napoleon Bonaparte could relate.
Sometimes, though.
Not so much.
