368: The Other Side Of Cheating W/ Justin Blackburn
Cheating, ghosting, infidelity. Radical ownership & honesty. Standing in integrity. Confronting the consequences of your actions. Evolving. Setting yourself free and trusting again.
Quite a few hefty topics that we cover in today's episode with Justin Blackburn, who is a life coach, comedian, and poet, as well as the boyfriend to Giana Rackham from episode 364 of The Heartbeat, where she and Kevin discuss how Justin cheated on her! Shortly after that interview, Justin contacted Kevin to give his side of the story, which was definitely too interesting to pass up, so here we are.
Lots to consider in this episode! From spiritual bypassing, to ego and how it likes to misidentify "unconditional love", all the way to the process of moving from anger to grief to eventual healing.
"I do remember being very supportive to whatever she felt. Because I think when you're in the wrong, obviously if you kind of look at it like a spiritually sort of way, you know, you're kind of co-creating situations. But I like to be more human than that - because we're in a human body - so I always like to take responsibility for my mistakes first."
"To know your soulmate, you have to know what's in your soul. And if you don't know what's in your soul, you're not going to find your soulmate."
"And when I go deeper it's really because I want people to treat me with respect, and that's a great thing! That's a great thing that I want."
