Q: "get one's point across" ve "make a point" arasındaki fark nedir?
A: Oh, I see! No, "make a point" on its own is not that aggressive, but it quickly goes in aggressive directions. It's just like "argue" in that way - for example, you can easily make a neutral argument, but then you have terms like "having an argument" and "arguing with" which are hostile.

"to get one's point across" means "to convince with effort" - the person you're explaining to might not understand, or might not want to hear you.

"to make one's point" means "to explain one's argument". It is the less aggressive of the two. If you're saying things like "I'm trying to make my point", you might want to consider "I'm trying to explain myself" as a completely neutral alternative.

"make my point" tends to blame the other person for not understanding, whereas "explain myself" tends to blame you for not explaining correctly.
