Good question. But the answer is simple.
You're aware, we're aware. Your job is to educate the people around you about these things. If they can't accept the information then move on to someone else. They'll eventually be faced with reality.
The people who just don't believe are like little babies. They're children. They haven't grown up and realized the world around them yet and don't worry because one day they will. And they'll all come back to you and say "Lauren, you were right. I'm an idiot."
So how do I personally deal with it? Patience. Soon enough this will all be common knowledge and people like us will go from being ridiculed to being praised. Don't worry it will happen. Just be patient. And enjoy your knowledge.

How are you going to convince 95% of all people, when you are trying to prove alien existence on non-concrete facts? (we have all the evidence, but each evidence is actively debunked by anti's, and government/military). We have a lot of other agendas working against alien awareness, and the common teachings, from school, to the media (movies, books, other fictions) depicts aliens as such wild beings, that it's made into common sense that these would be fakes.

i'll just reply directly to the OP:
some nights i truly wish i had never fallen into it at all, or learned about it. i wish i hadn't seen or experienced the things i have, so i could just turn the lights out and lay my head down peacefully without tensing up and being even too scared to roll around and look into the darkness...
i only talk about it with people if i think they'll listen to me for more than 60 seconds about the subject, and have only shared with a handful of people the things that have happened to me.
