Just A Thought!

I was reading page 25 on how to live your purpose, and it mentions busy as an obstacle or a typical answer given to certain circumstances. How about if you do not want to tell others your personal business? Because they will have their opinions and perhaps you do not want to heard what they have to say because they can influence your A (disempowerment) but is work in progress! Is it reasonable in cases like these to just say I am busy? Or this busy is more related to me at a personal purpose level, and at this level is when I cannot have it because it will be an obstacle. Thanks
