If you are baptized, does your life reflect someone who has died to your old self and now lives for Christ? Why or why not?

What are some of the reasons you have had, or have heard from others, for not getting baptized? How do you approach those reasons?
As a Christian, do you feel like part of a family? Why or why not?
