Indeed. Which is why I cannot prescribe "what is, is" to anyone, nor try to convince them of anything, unless they're ready to accept, ready to grasp it.
(Actually, an old friend once suggested that one shouldn't even mention it, until it's "asked for," in a way, or otherwise revealing that one is ready to hear it).
