Revolt and Evolve (the Power of Forgiveness) with Dr. Charles and Dr. Travis #HeliumRadio
What’s Good Revolutionaries? “I don’t know if I’ve ever told this story on the show, Dr. Batts and I, you know, I figured it was, it was time. It was time for me to tell this story of my journey, my journey of getting to a better version of myself. And, you know, in 2015, I was, you know, I broke up with my ex-fiance who I think is one of the greatest humans on earth in January of 2015. And I didn’t care about anybody. I mean, when I say that, I didn’t care about anybody but myself. Literally, literally nobody. And I did things that represented my sole care for my pleasure, right? And my sole understanding that life revolved around me. And I didn’t care about anybody else. I didn’t care about my friends. I didn’t care about the people that I was with. I cared about myself. And I did things that I regret. I did things back then, this version of me looks back and says, you know what, mm-mm, nah. But I remember late in 2015, walking into my therapist’s office and saying to him, these words, Dr. Batz, I’m a piece of shit. Because I had known that I had done things under the sole understanding, the auspices, that it didn’t matter. what anybody else thought, it was just about me. And I knew that I needed to change my life. I knew that I needed to turn around. I needed to care about something greater than myself. So I walked into the therapist’s office and said, I’m a piece of shit and I don’t wanna feel like this anymore. And so for the last eight years, I have worked on myself. I’ve worked on being a better human, being a better man, being a better son, being a better Godfather, being a better friend, being a better frat brother, being better, being better at showing up for myself, being very self-aware, understanding the frailties of who I am as a human, being also understanding that at some point I needed to give myself grace for the past versions of myself.” – Dr. Charles I have never talked about my past on the show. I always felt a sense of shame when referencing it, but at some point, the story needed to be told. This show started because I needed a way out, something to guide me as I moved through my journey. I went looking for the content and it wasn’t there. Thus, WYR was born. It was needed because I didn’t want to be that version of myself anymore, the one who only cared about himself, the one who made decisions solely for himself. I wanted to be different. Every guest on this show over the last 7 years has helped me and thousands of revolutionaries fulfill their answer to the most thought-provoking question of their life. In this episode, Dr. Batts and I discuss one of the greatest gifts we have in life, the power to forgive. It is funny that when you are looking for forgiveness for your past, life will present you with opportunities to forgive. it is up to you to work through your “ish” and hopefully revolutionize your existence.
