I think both of the issues can be addressed by editing the axes.
To move over the text, you can set the x-axis range to be:
from -70 to 1 for Rank1
from -1 to 70 for Rank2
Then for the y-axis, you can set the end point to be 101.
Please see attached.
I didn't look into it, but there is something going on
with the word "afraid" for the top line.

Thanks Swaroop. Suggested solution did the trick. I am aware of the first word and have fixed it (Thanks for pointing it out though).
Appreciate your looking into my question and helping!
