Resistance diminishes when we learn how to be vulnerable without being fragile. Then we don't have to "punch-back" or push others to gain support, usually.
We must also recognize that some resistance is inevitable because we are individuals.
Therefore we seldom see things identically. As long as we do so similarly, however, is sufficient if we are articulate in expressing ourselves and genuinely concerned about others' interests..
Moreover, those who resist us often have issues of trust that transcend us. So they won't understand despite the demands we make on ourselves to get along or be alert to antagonisms, minimizing these accordingly.
Forgive them, move on and work to form more fruitful alliances.
