When I have to confront someone about something and there's a sense of aggression from them, I have a strong nervous reaction. Rationally, I know that there's nothing to worry about, but that doesn't stop my heart from pounding like someone's slugging me in the chest with every beat. Even if I just have to talk to them on the phone. It's really annoying.
I suppose it comes from me not having much experience approaching male-aggression-conflict-type situations. Either I avoid them entirely or I find myself in the middle of them and I switch into a problem-solving mode where there's not much of a sense of any emotion. But when that mode doesn't switch on, I don't get that fearless, unstoppable demeanor. I just have a heart that's trying to pound its way out of my chest and a pair of hands that won't stop shaking.
