Some times someone need to tell people not what they want to hear, but what they need to. It is harder than it seems, as saying the wrong thing can completely deny the effect intended and instead make the person close itself even more about what the person need to realize. We live in a world where people fear to say some truths in fear of making those people angry. Many times, they will be in a minority and fear that this dissenting opinion will make people hate the dissenter.
Well, as I said, sometimes people really need to hear what they need, even if that will make them angry. The option of letting the status quo persist can be even more damaging than saying something. Sometimes we need to say it, despite the consequences. Or else a bad situation will only get worse by letting it be.
