"Daily relationship struggles, or "walking on egg shells" around your partner is not mentally or physically healthy; it is emotionally draining. This emotional stress will prevent the secure attachment that promotes comfort, support and love. Instead of turning toward each other during difficult times, separation and resentment will develop. When you and your partner are confident that you have each others back - then you will take on challenges together and reap the benefits of a secure partnership! Emotional stress can promote feelings of depression and anxiety; causing you to question your choices instead of being confident with your decisions."
