When the cause is just and expedient is the only time to exert influence and pressure on people in the attempt to get them to adjust to what is required. Otherwise, it behooves us most often to either comply with them, what they think, and how they behave.....or instead simply leave them alone, mind our own business, and occupy ourselves with our own duties, interests, and endeavors.

Scripture instructs us:

1Co 4:16 I urge you, then, be imitators of me.
1Co 11:1 Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ.
Eph 5:1 Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children.

One of Creator God's characteristics is that He has set the natural-resource parameters for His human creatures to function within....and then (more or less) lets them with non-intervening non-interference either comply with those created parameters or instead self-destruct in sundry ways and to various degrees of severity.

We must do no less, and must not impose harassment against those who are not directly irritating us nor doing us overt harm. There is no point in insisting on our own way when such gets in the way of others for no good reason:

Le 19:14 You shall not curse the deaf or put a stumbling block before the blind, but you shall fear your God: I am the LORD.
Pr 3:30 Do not contend with a man for no reason, when he has done you no harm.
Ro 13:5 Therefore one must be subject, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience.
Ro 14:13 Then let us no more pass judgment on one another, but rather decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother.
1Co 8:9 Only take care lest this liberty of yours somehow become a stumbling block to the weak.

Not only that, but our presumed "help" might instead be a hurt against those who should not be harmed:

Pr 15:1 A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
Pr 17:14 The beginning of strife is like letting out water; so quit before the quarrel breaks out.
Pr 20:22 Do not say, "I will repay evil"; wait for the LORD, and he will help you.
Pr 25:23 The north wind brings forth rain; and a backbiting tongue, angry looks.
Pr 26:17 He who meddles in a quarrel not his own is like one who takes a passing dog by the ears.
Pr 30:33 For pressing milk produces curds, pressing the nose produces blood, and pressing anger produces strife.
Isa 59:18 According to their deeds, so will he repay, wrath to his adversaries, requital to his enemies; to the coastlands he will render requital.
Ro 12:17 Repay no one evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.
Ro 12:19 Beloved, never avenge yourselves, but leave it to the wrath of God; for it is written, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay, says the Lord."
2Th 1:6 since indeed God deems it just to repay with affliction those who afflict you
Heb 10:30 For we know him who said, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay." And again, "The Lord will judge his people."
Re 22:12 "Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense, to repay every one for what he has done.

If that is done, no stumbling block will be administered so that others innocently interdependent nearby will not be injustly frustrated nor defiled:

Eze 44:12 Because they ministered to them before their idols and became a stumbling block of iniquity to the house of Israel, therefore I have sworn concerning them, says the Lord GOD, that they shall bear their punishment.
Re 2:14 But I have a few things against you: you have some there who hold the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to put a stumbling block before the sons of Israel, that they might eat food sacrificed to idols and practice immorality.

If we can assist others with Scripturally-honorable and Biblically-advocated resources we have and can share but not shame nor bother them doing so, the following verses from Holy Writ apply:

2Co 8:21 for we aim at what is honorable not only in the Lord's sight but also in the sight of men.
2Co 9:12 for the rendering of this service not only supplies the wants of the saints but also overflows in many thanksgivings to God.
Ga 6:2 Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
Ga 6:5 For each man will have to bear his own load.
Php 2:4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
1Th 2:8 So, being affectionately desirous of you, we were ready to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own selves, because you had become very dear to us.

Such protocol and policy not only applies to fellow community members and neighbors at large, but even or especially within our own households:

Pr 11:29 He who troubles his household will inherit wind, and the fool will be servant to the wise.
Pr 25:17 Let your foot be seldom in your neighbor's house, lest he become weary of you and hate you.
Eph 5:33 however, let each one of you love his wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.
Eph 6:4 Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.
Col 3:19 Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.
Col 3:21 Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged.

Put another way: If your spouse wants some private-time space, accomodate to that their desire as much as convenient and possible for both of you together:

1Co 7:5 Defraud you all not one the other, unless it be with consent for a time only, that you all may give yourselves to fasting and prayer; and come together again, that Satan tempt you not through your lack of self-restraint.
1Co 7:16 Wife, how do you know whether you will save your husband? Husband, how do you know whether you will save your wife?
Phm 1:15 Perhaps this is why he was parted from you for a while, that you might have him back for ever....

The spouse might not squeeze the toothpaste tube in the middle, might make some irritating repetitious noise with some nervous habit, or do something else requiring kind but insistent, sensible and understandable objection against such truly-intolerable annoyance for the purpose of godly correction and consequential mutual security and peace:

Pr 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Pr 1:32 For the simple are killed by their turning away, and the complacence of fools destroys them....
Pr 13:20 He who walks with wise men becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.
Pr 15:2 The tongue of the wise dispenses knowledge, but the mouths of fools pour out folly.
Pr 15:7 The lips of the wise spread knowledge; not so the minds of fools.
Pr 15:14 The mind of him who has understanding seeks knowledge, but the mouths of fools feed on folly.
Pr 19:29 Condemnation is ready for scoffers, and flogging for the backs of fools.
Pr 26:3 A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the back of fools.
Pr 26:7 Like a lame man's legs, which hang useless, is a proverb in the mouth of fools.
Pr 26:9 Like a thorn that goes up into the hand of a drunkard is a proverb in the mouth of fools.
Ec 5:1 Guard your steps when you go to the house of God; to draw near to listen is better than to offer the sacrifice of fools; for they do not know that they are doing evil.
Ec 7:5 It is better for a man to hear the rebuke of the wise than to hear the song of fools.
Ec 7:9 Be not quick to anger, for anger lodges in the bosom of fools.

Mt 18:15 "If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother.
Lu 17:3 Take heed to yourselves; if your brother sins, rebuke him, and if he repents, forgive him
Ro 14:15 If your brother is being injured by what you eat, you are no longer walking in love. Do not let what you eat cause the ruin of one for whom Christ died.
1Co 13:5 .....[love] is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful
2Ti 2:25 correcting.....opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant that they will repent and come to know the truth
Tit 3:8 The saying is sure. I desire you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed in God may be careful to apply themselves to good deeds; these are excellent and profitable to men.

When advice to cease or stop something that is irritating enough to vocally say something about it to some perpetrator alone who is woefully ignorant of how obnoxious they are being, that should indeed be vocalized - being that people are not psychic and have not a clue that whatever wrong thing they are doing is causing such grief to others unless others verbally, audibly, or in some other hard-copy way inform them exactly what that wrong and irritating action or behavior is. And when those errant persons discover, by listening or reading, what their harassive fault is, compliance is then Word-of-God mandatory:

Nu 30:5 But if her father expresses disapproval to her on the day that he hears of it, no vow of hers, no pledge by which she has bound herself, shall stand; and the LORD will forgive her, because her father opposed her.
Nu 30:7 and her husband hears of it, and says nothing to her on the day that he hears; then her vows shall stand, and her pledges by which she has bound herself shall stand.
Nu 30:8 But if, on the day that her husband comes to hear of it, he expresses disapproval, then he shall make void her vow which was on her, and the thoughtless utterance of her lips, by which she bound herself; and the LORD will forgive her.
Nu 30:14 But if her husband says nothing to her from day to day, then he establishes all her vows, or all her pledges, that are upon her; he has established them, because he said nothing to her on the day that he heard of them.
Ro 13:1 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God.
Ro 13:5 Therefore one must be subject, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience.
1Co 16:16 I urge you to be subject to such men and to every fellow worker and laborer.
Eph 5:21 Be subject to one another out of reverence for Christ.
Eph 5:22 Wives, be subject to your husbands, as to the Lord.
Eph 5:24 As the church is subject to Christ, so let wives also be subject in everything to their husbands.
Col 3:18 Wives, be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.
Heb 12:9 Besides this, we have had earthly fathers to discipline us and we respected them. Shall we not much more be subject to the Father of spirits and live?
1Pe 2:13 Be subject for the Lord's sake to every human institution, whether it be to the emperor as supreme.....
1Pe 5:5 Likewise you that are younger be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for "God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble."

If such accomodation is not done, possibly-fatal danger is imminent:

Le 26:14 "But if you will not hearken to me, and will not do all these commandments,
15 if you spurn my statutes, and if your soul abhors my ordinances, so that you will not do all my commandments, but break my covenant,
16 I will do this to you: I will appoint over you sudden terror, consumption, and fever that waste the eyes and cause life to pine away. And you shall sow your seed in vain, for your enemies shall eat it;
17 I will set my face against you, and you shall be smitten before your enemies; those who hate you shall rule over you, and you shall flee when none pursues you.
18 And if in spite of this you will not hearken to me, then I will chastise you again sevenfold for your sins,
19 and I will break the pride of your power, and I will make your heavens like iron and your earth like brass;
20 and your strength shall be spent in vain, for your land shall not yield its increase, and the trees of the land shall not yield their fruit.
21 "Then if you walk contrary to me, and will not hearken to me, I will bring more plagues upon you, sevenfold as many as your sins.
22 And I will let loose the wild beasts among you, which shall rob you of your children, and destroy your cattle, and make you few in number, so that your ways shall become desolate.
23 "And if by this discipline you are not turned to me, but walk contrary to me,
24 then I also will walk contrary to you, and I myself will smite you sevenfold for your sins.
25 And I will bring a sword upon you, that shall execute vengeance for the covenant; and if you gather within your cities I will send pestilence among you, and you shall be delivered into the hand of the enemy.

De 28:15 "But if you will not obey the voice of the LORD your God or be careful to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command you this day, then all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you.
1Sa 12:15 but if you will not hearken to the voice of the LORD, but rebel against the commandment of the LORD, then the hand of the LORD will be against you and your king.
Ps 7:12 If a man does not repent, God will whet his sword; he has bent and strung his bow
Mal 2:2 If you will not listen, if you will not lay it to heart to give glory to my name, says the LORD of hosts, then I will send the curse upon you and I will curse your blessings; indeed I have already cursed them, because you do not lay it to heart.
Heb 12:15 See to it that no one fail to obtain the grace of God; that no "root of bitterness" spring up and cause trouble, and by it the many become defiled......

Such guidance is crucial (though not "critical") in determining who one should continuously and/or intimately associate with, become friends with, date the first time, continue dating, become engaged or betrothed to, and marry. Without 24/7 cooperative compliance in everything, unification is impossible, and if cooperative compliance is nevertheless not promptly performed but instead ignored and disregarded, painful and miserable separation and divorce is inevitable:

1Co 7:10 To the married I give charge, not I but the Lord, that the wife should not separate from her husband
1Co 7:15 But if the unbelieving partner desires to separate, let it be so; in such a case the brother or sister is not bound. For God has called us to peace.

Frequently, righteous discrimination is EXPECTED and totally legitimate:

2Co 6:14 Do not be mismated with unbelievers. For what partnership have righteousness and iniquity? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?
2Co 6:17 Therefore come out from them, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch nothing unclean; then I will welcome you...

Even the Lord (whom we should imitate as much as we are finitely and physically able) engages in selective legal discrimination irrespective of contrived, bigoted and prejudicial, unfair and irrational, humanly-concocted-and-demanded "civil" "rights," "equal" "rights," and "human" "rights:"

1Ki 8:53 For thou didst separate them from among all the peoples of the earth, to be thy heritage, as thou didst declare through Moses, thy servant, when thou didst bring our fathers out of Egypt, O Lord GOD."
Pr 21:9 It is better to live in a corner of the housetop than in a house shared with a contentious woman.
Pr 21:19 It is better to live in a desert land than with a contentious and fretful woman.
Pr 25:24 It is better to live in a corner of the housetop than in a house shared with a contentious woman.
Mt 25:32 Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats,
Mt 13:49 So it will be at the close of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous,
Mt 25:32 Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate them one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats,
Eph 5:7 Therefore do not associate with them
Pr 14:7 Leave the presence of a fool, for there you do not meet words of knowledge.
2Ti 3:5 holding the form of religion but denying the power of it. Avoid such people.
