Meet Minnie

By Dolah Saleh | 06 April 2021 |

Minnie’s story serves to highlight what so many of us experience. From the lack of career guidance to accepting work that had little or nothing to do with her passion, she speaks powerfully about how she felt and the advice she can deliver as a consequence. Like many, there were sparks of illumination in some…

Four Killers of Relationship

By Dolah Saleh | 30 March 2021 |

John Gottman identified relationship barriers as what he referred to as the “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.” These are criticism, defensiveness, contempt, and stonewalling. We recognize these as self-protective mechanisms that, in fact, are guaranteed to destroy our relationship. That’s because they originate in unresolved pain from our past.

You’ve sent in your resume for a job you feel you can do and are interested in doing. You were invited for a face-to-face interview. All signs point to you being a “fit” to the corporate culture. So, why did you not get the job? It is essential that you prepare ahead of time for…

Being Responsible

By Dolah Saleh | 02 March 2021 | Comments Off on Being Responsible

Blaming looks externally for the source of our discontent. The problem with that is it assumes you are a victim, not in control of your own happiness. With the understanding that you alone are responsible for your happiness, you look to the self as the source. You are empowered with the knowledge that you are…

Blame and Responsibility

By Dolah Saleh | 23 February 2021 | Comments Off on Blame and Responsibility

While blaming ourselves sounds too much like judgment and criticism, asking ourselves to take responsibility allows us to feel a level of control. We should each know and understand the difference, so we can ensure that we are being kind both to ourselves and to all others. Holding ourselves responsible and accountable is a good…

What is happening to us here? We have gone from unearthing the horrors of abuse against women to a global pandemic, mixed with highlights of prejudice against people who are different from us.
