Ayaan Hirsi Ali showed great insight when responding to a question as to how to get others who struggle with false systems of belief to come out and leave those false systems said that in the same way she stuggled with the dissonance caused by the difference in what she felt and believed in her own heart and mind with what she witnessed with the false system of belief around her... she suggests:
THE BEST MEANS of challenging and empowering people to examine their own position, beliefs and practices (along with their contentment vs. discontentment to remain or change their profession/position) is to CREATE AS MUCH DISSONANCE AS POSSIBLE for that person..." (my paraphrase)

DO IT!!! (Look for EVERY possibility. Take EVERY opportunity!)
