Every relationship in our life is built one conversation at a time:

  • It’s important to remember the concept of an ‘emotional bank account’!
  • Every time we meet someone we open an ‘emotional bank account with them &  it lasts for the rest of our life.



    • Every time we have a good & positive interaction or conversation with someone, they might deposit 10 or 20 credits into our “emotional bank account” with them…
    • However, every time we have a negative interaction, we may withdraw 10, 20, 50, or 100 credits depending on the severity of the interaction
    • It is important to keep this critical concept in mind in all of your relationships!

Discuss how this concept has played out in your lives…
