Since losing his father to murder, being accused of domestic abuse by an ex and losing his job as a successful hip-hop music executive, Mickey "Memphitz" Wright has been in a downward spiral, using drugs to cope with his pain. As he tells it, he's had no chance to get his life and career back on track.

"I felt like the world that I knew gave up on me," Mickey says. "I scratch and bite my way to the top ... and then, all of a sudden, I was lied on. My ex-girlfriend ruined my life because I simply didn't want to be with this person."

"Are you aware that the way you tell your story makes you a victim?" Iyanla asks. "The way you set it up so that you don't have to take responsibility for your victimization is that you stay high. You ain't in your right mind."
