Iyanla's House of Healing: Meet the Men
His struggle: Laying the groundwork for a better life
"[Being incarcerated] became, like, a repetitive cycle. I used to think everything was against me as a black man. It did create a lot of anger inside of me."

"If I had to sum up what I got from my brothers in Boyz II Men, I would have to say betrayal, a broken bond. I mean, at this point, we don't even talk."
His struggle: Expressing his anger constructively
"Violence is kind of normal to me because probably before middle school, I had probably 40 fights. One day ... I got suspended. I walked home. I was like, 'Dad, I got in a fight.' He was fixing to whoop me, and he said, 'Well, did you win?' I was like, 'Yeah.' He was like, 'Good job.'"
His struggle: Feeling out of place in his own skin and culture
"I am affected by how people think about me."
