The Betrayed & Betrayer: Growing From Infidelity with Dr. Jade Teta

November 16, 2021

I guarantee you’ve never heard a podcast episode quite like this one before.

Dr. Jade Teta is one of my closest friends in the world, and we’re doing an ongoing series around relationships.

This topic around betrayal and infidelity is a BIG one. It’s taboo, it’s tough to discuss, and what I want to underscore the most is how much pain there is on every side of the equation.

I truly believe that in order to heal and move forward, both sides need to have a better understanding of what each other goes through when moving through this type of experience. It’s why I suggested to Jade that we cover this incredibly important topic, and there’s also a huge lack of support for those looking to heal as the ones who stepped outside of the relationship.

This episode can offer some unique perspectives, because Jade has been both the betrayer and the betrayed, while I have experienced deep betrayal.

Both of us have used our experiences to identify our own dysfunctions in relationships and learn, grow, mature and develop when it comes to how we show up for partners in relationships.

We’re talking:

  • How to heal from betrayal (both the betrayed and betrayed)
  • Signs someone is likely to cheat
  • Why people cheat
  • Using the experience to spot our dysfunctions
  • How to develop an honor code
  • Whole new levels of openness and honesty

This is one you’re not going to want to miss, and I can also guarantee that some of this is going to make you uncomfortable to hear. Sit with it, take a look at how it may trigger you, and consider the different sides of the equation.
