Aired on 03/17/2018 | CC tv-14
While working through the trauma they experienced after being abandoned by their parents as children, five brothers sit down with their father to directly address the pain caused by his absence. Markis, one of the older siblings, says he struggles with severe feelings of guilt, which Iyanla encourages him to express while two of his brothers literally hold him up in support.

"I'm guilty of having anger and rage toward [my father]," Markis says through tears. "I'm guilty of not understanding him. I'm guilty of not trying. I'm guilty of not caring."

Markis' father, Michael Sr., also appears overcome with emotion upon hearing Markis speak, and tries to walk away during the difficult moment. However, Iyanla stops him in his tracks.
