Emotional Bank Account (Video)

“We all know what a financial bank account is. We make deposits and build up a reserve from which we can make withdrawals…

An Emotional Bank Account is a metaphor that describes the amount of trust that’s been built up in a relationship.

If I make deposits into an Emotional Bank account with you through courtesy, kindness, honesty, and keeping my commitments, I build up a reserve…

Which means your trust toward me becomes higher.

I can even make mistakes and that trust level, that emotional reserve, will compensate for it.

There are six major deposits that build the Emotional Bank Account…

    Why is it that our emotional bank account drains fast as the relationship improves ? I guess it is normal to anticipate with time, the account would be big and sufficient. Please enlighten me.

      The point of the emotional bank account is to make sure you keep making more deposits than withdrawals, just like a regular bank account. Watch more of my videos to see how to do this.

    Point well taken. Me and my spouse maintain a very high Emotional bank account and though it’s inescapable that we reached to a point of withdrawals…we discuss our problems, no matter how sensitive it is, with much mutual respect. It may not entirely conceal the withdrawal, but it will surely make a swift deposit.

    My personal thoughts on this subject. Being affectionate and kind hearted to others is the greatest indication of a full emotional bank account. If you are mean-spirited and spiteful, is a clear sign that you are overdrawn in your E.B.A.
