We all know how important it is to balance our bank accounts by making more deposits than withdrawals. But have you ever considered that your relationships deserve the same treatment?
How many deposits have you made lately? Deposits include giving someone your full attention, scheduling a date night, or showing affection for example. Withdrawals, on the other hand, can include criticism, ignoring, and arguing.
When your relationship experiences more withdrawals than deposits, it cannot survive difficult times. It just doesn’t have enough “energy” to give.
To start adding back into your love bank now, ask the people you are in relationship with how you can give to them. This includes partners, children, friends, family, and even co-workers. But more importantly, commit to becoming someone who is a true GIVER consistently. This will require you to clean out all of the old dust, dirt, and grime that you carry around; things like anger, distrust, and resentments towards others. By making this commitment, it will free you up to GIVE of yourself in a most fulfilling way and you will see how your relationships can transform into being overflowing and abundant.
