The best thing to do, is the simply eases thing to do. Wait til the time is right, and the right time lies between fear and depression. At some point in this life with Society outrageous demands of qualifications to consider u being someone in this world, will arrive in a person life who only thinks of the next fashion icon or the materialistic thing. There comes a point when we all realize that we can keep up with this fast moving world, and we must move at our own speed and in the beginning of that stage lies fear and depression. Fear of what they would say, and depression of knowing that is stupid to try to keep up with some trend that is going to strike that is when you speak your wisdom. This is the only time they may really hear you

I cannot say, this is the way for all to follow, it's just my path. If we meet on the same path, cool, we can help each other along the way.

Bright Blessings on your journey
Looking to impart wisdom is a helluva responsibility to take on & ,therefore, it takes skill & walking awhile in the other persons shoes. You gota go where they are, show compassion to empathise. Only then do you have a chance of really being heard.
In this World but not of it !

Some teacher somewhere said...avoid the strong temptation to teach (metaphysical type stuff).

Try to fixate on how these others are better at things you aren't, and learn from them there to improve.

It sucks when no one will heed warnings, see what you see in them etc., but I find it's better to just learn all you can and only open your mouth when it really feels right to say something, or when your opinion is asked.
