In what way – or at whom – are your pincers aimed at now? You're capable of displaying great sensitivity and compassion yet, when put in a position to defend a particular point, you won't hesitate doing so in a way makes clear the levels of passion and belief that underpin it. You appear to be struggling to get someone to understand your feelings about an issue that they see in a different way and perhaps not as important as you believe it to be. Avoid any tendency to encourage confrontation. Put the pincers away and make your point calmly and sensitively.
