When you make a personal statement, that’s exactly what it is: personal.
It does not (nor should not) require anyone else’s support. Indeed, selflessness and magnanimous behaviour are admirable traits, and inspiring in and of themselves.
It is an entirely different thing to actively attempt to sway the opinion of other people, and to garner support for your actions – however genuine.
Sadly, anyone attempting to do that can be seen as callous, greedy, and insincere.
