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!
