Yes, you're going to be nervous. But the more relaxed you are, the more you will be able to get through the conversation in a positive manner. Get a stress ball, watch a comedy movie beforehand, whatever it takes. Don't try to have this talk right after a fight with your boss! The more relaxed and calm you are before you begin, the more that that feeling will radiate to your partner.
