"Curiosity killed the cat," This old proverb warns that too much exploration or experimentation may be dangerous.

Presumably the opposite, being incurious or not open to learning new things is a wiser course.

So is it better to have a closed mind and play it safe?

Some play on fears of the unknown and try to limit information and learning because they want to control others. While we may not always agree with what we find, it is better to listen and try to understand differing points of view.

The mind is like a parachute. It only works when it's open. Keeping an open mind will get you farther in life.

You can't.

All you can do is to be clear in your own mind about what you are able to do, and communicate that clearly to them. Then if someone asks you to do something that doesn't work for you, tell them. Just say, "I'm sorry, but I don't do that." Don't try to explain why. That never works. They will not listen to it anyway.

Bottom line is, you can't please everybody. Once you realize and accept that, you will have more peace of mind.
