So sad that he isn’t who he says he is

I use to be a huge Jay fan. Bought his two books, got the calm app, payed for Genius and even went to his live show. And then to come across numerous articles and podcast about who he really is, turned me off. I wanted to give him another chance and I tried to re listen to this show and I can’t anymore.
