- I don't know these folks all that well.
- I haven't known them for very long.
- I don't want to impose.
- I don't want to be a bother.
- I don't want to be someone who comes across as needy or lacking.

I needed someone to check on my house while I was away on travel. The problem that was troubling me was that I felt like I really didn't know anyone well enough to ask them for such a favor. I figured that my best bet would be to approach someone from my church community group. I typed up the email and lingered over the keyboard for quite some while. Somehow I could not bring myself to hit the "send" button. Instead, I went for a walk to the bathroom. I then remembered that I wanted to get a refill on my cup of coffee. I chatted with some folks that I passed in the hallway. Finally, I could not come up with any more excuses to keep me from returning to my computer. I reread my note for the tenth time. All kinds of thoughts ran wild through my mind.
