Association is an art where we are able to connect with other people to come out with innovative ideas for solutions which we might not have come up by ourselves.

While these are all natural reactions of us, we have to overcome these fears and talk about our view on the issue. This might help us to think about the problem from a new vantage point which we might have not have thought about. Even if people dismiss it as silly, laugh it off as an honest mistake but make sure to continue to interact.
