Last night our #TaibaTalks
session was open to the public and they covered healthy relationships. ⠀ ⠀ Noor Daoudi - Trust in the workplace.⠀ ⠀ 1. There are more jobs/opportunities, than there are people. That’s something we ALL needed to hear. Often times we think there isn’t enough room for all of us. Her reiterating in a large group of women, restored that feeling of “anything is possible.” ⠀ ⠀ 2. Poop Sandwich! 🤣 If you want to communicate something not so positive to a superior, use the 💩 sandwich trick. Start with a compliment, dump the purpose, end with praise. ⠀ ⠀ 3. Her advice in choosing a job/career is to, choose well, write down your goals there, and set expectations!⠀ ⠀ Farhat Shamsi - gave us practical ways to administer forgiveness. ⠀ ⠀ 1. There is a difference between pardoning and forgiving them. Pardoning is that you will no longer treat them badly or hold negativity against them. To forgive, is to actually let go. She also mentions that it takes a lot of time to arrive at forgiveness, so give yourself time. ⠀ ⠀ 2. Whenever you feel a bad thing about someone, or remember what they have done while actively seeking forgiveness with them in your heart. Pray for them, repeat positive affirmations about them, and point out your own flaws to elevate them in your consciousnesses...until the negativity subsides. ⠀ ⠀ 3. Remember that God is the most forgiving, and that He continually forgives you/us. To be Godly, we too, must forgive others.⠀ ⠀ Tawakulti Busari - Proactivity. ⠀ ⠀ 1. When you are cultivating a relationship with anyone, the beginning starts with you. She told us how all of her longest relationships started by her or someone taking the initiative to speak, call, email, etc. first. And to continue having a mutual relationship, you must continue to take action.⠀ ⠀ 2. In order to keep long-lasting, healthy relationships, you must first know yourself, your passions, and do what you love. If you are happy and love yourself, you then can be happy with and love others. ⠀ ⠀ 3. Pay attention to what people say about you, and be transparent about who you are. ⠀ ⠀ It was way too much to attempt recounting in this small space. Just know, you missed it!
