A friend of mine was reading through my sketchbook of these, and she astutely pointed out that the anxious reaction was more about heldover baggage from prior relationships than anything that was going on right in the moment.

A friend of mine was reading through my sketchbook of these, and she astutely pointed out that the anxious reaction was more about heldover baggage from prior relationships than anything that was going on right in the moment.
