When your EV has a shorter range than the trip you need to do, you have to either plan where to charge, or take another car, or take public transportation.

You cannot drive it farther than its range, unless you can charge it - which is obvious; and it means you don't have range "anxiety". Being anxious is being unsure - and my point still stands: once you get used to driving an EV, you stop having anxiety.

Do you have anxiety about driving an ICE farther than you can go on on tank?

Same goes for driving an EV - you know how far you can go. You know where the charging stations are - and you drive where you can.

What is the issue?
Sincerely, Neil
