EMOTIONAL BANK ACCOUNT
Most of us have some sort of financial bank
account, but I'm curious to know how many of you
have an EMOTIONAL BANK ACCOUNT? You're asking, "What
is an Emotional Bank Account and how does it work?"
An EBA represents the quality of a relationship you
have with another person. It's like a financial bank
account in that you make "deposits" (ie) doing
things that build trust in your relationships, or
you can make "withdrawals,"(ie) doing things that
shortchange your level of trust with other people.
This is not just a stepfamily issue; an Emotional
Bank Account represents all levels of relationship
quality with everyone in your life!
