When Iyanla talked with Ed, a guest who said cheating on women was in his genes, he explained that he was fixated on finding the perfect mate. "So you involve yourself in a relationship with that person. Shortly after involving yourself in that relationship, you discover that person is not perfect," Ed said. "So, therefore, you begin to search anew for a perfect mate."
Iyanla said that while Ed loved beautiful women, he didn't honor himself.
"When you honor yourself, every single thing that you do comes from that place," Iyanla said. "That means when you honor yourself, you protect yourself, you trust yourself, you take care of yourself. And you do things in a way that are going to bring glory to who you are."
