You are very polite and kind, ma'sha'Allah, so I know you would never give advice harshly or as a way to make someone feel bad, and it may be that person genuinely does not know what they are doing wrong.
Also, the person receiving advice must also have certain etiquettes, just as the person who provides it. So long as it is given privately, and in the most gentle, understanding way possible, they should receive it graciously and with humility. In the unlikely case they started to 'hate you', then the fault would be with them, not you.
I at this moment in life have much to learn, and if someone advised me, in private, and with valid reasons in a gentle manner, I would certainly take it into consideration and if I saw it as right, then act upon it inshaAllah. :)
