The word "restrict" implies that the intensity of the tenderness might become suffocating or inhibiting, preventing the person from exploring their own potential or pursuing their own goals. This interpretation aligns with the idea that an excessive display of affection can sometimes be stifling and limiting rather than supportive and nurturing.
