In your article you've shared the anxiety of many and also provided a good solution, which is admirable. Moreover, you've taken extra effort to present it in a friendly format of a cartoon. Hope to see more insightful articles from you.
P.S. - Good to know that you've read "Never split the difference", it is quite an insightful book.
