I'm analyzing a model that uses multiple mediators, and I'm having trouble understanding interpretation for some of that analysis, and how I would report it.

If my model has a path that looks like this:
a-->b-->c-->d
And the indirect effect from a->d was non significant, but the paths from a->c and b->d ARE significant, what's the most suitable interpretation of the mediation effect?

Thanks!

It sounds like the effects get diluted over time. There may also be some model misspecification causing this.
