Can You Bank On Your Friendships | LAYC25

Dr. Stephen R. Covey used a great metaphor for close relationships as joint emotional bank accounts.

“By proactively doing things that build trust in a relationship, one makes ‘deposits.’  Conversely, by reactively doing things that decrease trust, one makes ‘withdrawals.’  The current ‘balance’ in the emotional bank account, will determine how well two people can communicate and problem-solve together.” 

Today we talk about the reality that friendships worth having, require cultivation and nurturing.

Why are we surprised when a friendship fades away or ends abruptly?

As we evolve and grow as individuals, our needs change and so do our abilities and resources. Change affects friendship and being aware of this is essential to enjoying healthy, balanced relationships.
