Love isn’t a competition. It is not, “I love you more than you can love me. I love you more than I can let you love me. I love you more than I can possibly love me.”
That’s not love. That’s co-dependency. That’s insecurity. That’s uncertainty.
What if we flip the script? We change the narrative in our heads and the fear in our hearts to, “I love me so deeply, there is so much space for me to love you. You love you so deeply, I believe that you have the capacity to love me too. I love every part of me, the light and the dark, that I have a greater sense of empathy. Now I can love ALL of you—do you want to love all of me?”
In this episode, my guest Justin Baldoni talks to us about difficult conversations and how to rewrite the story from memories of the past. Justin is an actor, director, producer, entrepreneur, and changemaker whose efforts are focused on creating impactful media and entertainment. He is the creator and director of CW’s “My Last Days,” an uplifting documentary series about life as told by courageous people living with a terminal illness, and the creator of “ManEnough,” the dinner conversation series which dives into traditional masculinity.
In this episode you will learn, how to rewrite the story from memories of the past, the truth about the pain that comes with healing, about the significance of leading with vulnerability, the myth that we’ve been told about what love should look like.
And now, let’s jump right into Episode 1,369 of The School of Greatness!
