  •  At first it was. But not after a while. (7+ / 0-)

    The hardest part is overcoming the feeling that you're invading another person's space - because you are. Part of that comes from the other person - they're advertising that they're emotionally closed and you need to find a way in there. You develop a technique after a while, earn their trust, and then it goes smoothly.

    It helps when you've been on the other side of it as well - as I have.

    It's really not that big of a thing. Part of my job is to do it, so that's all I'm doing. But it's a bit sad how closed off from one another we are as a society that reaching out to help is perceived to be terribly invasive. YOYO really has become ingrained in our culture in the most fundamental ways.
