About the episode
In this episode hosted by Adity Kutty, Nicholas explained that a relationship has three components: value, support, and individuality. He also mentioned that there are ways to get rid of relationship anxiety, and they involve not just focusing on your partner but assessing yourself as well. It is essential to know what you need to feel to be secure.
Nicholas also recommended asking your partner with an ‘anxiety history questionnaire’ where both individuals can discuss the things that matter to them, like what are the things that make one anxious and how often these things occur. Making a healthy conversation with your partner is vital to avoid relationship anxiety and so they can cope with stress.
Relationship anxiety describes the feeling of worry and doubt regarding your relationship with your partner. But for a relationship to work, both individuals should work together and have good communication with one another.
