How to Deal With Insecurities, Neediness and Apologies

Sex therapist Shamyra Howard joins Jess to talk about how to have happier relationships — with yourself, family, friends and partner(s). She talks about how to apologize effectively and why your partner doesn’t want you to be sorry — they want you to be better. Shamyra also offers strategies to:

Manage jealousy and overcome insecurities
Validate your partner and differentiate between validation and affirmation
Understand differences as opposed to simply accepting them

You know what’s sexy? Vulnerability is a word we use often but what does it mean for relationships and why does it matter? Relationships are all about feeling safe enough to take emotional risks knowing that this person has the ability to hurt you, but relying on your own ability to trust yourself to show up. This happens best with an emotionally responsive partner. When you respond to your partner’s emotional vulnerability with emotional security that creates connection. That’s Intimacy. That’s Sexy. #mondaynightraw
