Five years on love and intimacy, 2018-2022

What does it mean, my fear of appearing too sentimental in this project?...

My flaws – a list to be used when needed. 1. I work too much 2. I demand for certain things to be discussed way too much, for too long 3. I can sometimes be boring 4. I can’t miss lunch 5. I need my solitude (reading for too long for example, et cetera) 6. I have difficulties getting angry 7. I’m ridiculously anxious, full of doubts, and sometimes my crises must be hard on you 8.
