In the full model, I have four significant specific indirect effects:
A-->B-->A'(P-value: .000)
A-->C-->A'(P-value: .008)
A-->D-->A'(P-value: .258)
A-->E-->A'(P-value: .818)
and the sum of indirect effect is non-significant (P-value: .734)

So, I took off the two non-sig. paths and make my reduced model, however, the results became:
specific indirect effects:
A-->B-->A'(P-value: .000)
A-->C-->A'(P-value: .003)
and the sum of indirect effect is non-significant (P-value:.843)

Why is the sum of indirect effect still not significant(can i say even worse)? What does the result mean?

Thank you!
