Why do people avoid getting involved in the lives of others?
Fear: Apart from the unknown and uncertain, we fear rejection, disappointment, and someone taking advantage of us.
Time: Our time is premium, and our tightly oriented schedules of daily activities leave little room for anyone else.
Money: We are cautious about our money. Worse still is the idea that we are so overextended, we have no money.
Uncomfortable: When something, or someone, makes us feel uncomfortable we easily become standoffish.
Private: We may initially get involved, but the challenge is allowing others into our lives. We do not want others to know us.
