Iyanla travels to San Antonio, Texas, to help two sisters, Barbara and Geneva, who are in total breakdown—one was raised uptown by loving, affluent parents; the other was raised downtown in the housing projects. Fifty-eight-year-old businesswoman Barbara wants to rebuild the relationship with the sister she says was sleeping with her boyfriend for years, eventually having a second child with him. For Barbara, her sister's actions were unforgivable, but Iyanla understands there are always two sides to every story. Meeting on neutral ground at a rental home outside San Antonio, Iyanla brings the two sisters together with the hope of helping each sister see the other from a new and different perspective. Later, Iyanla sits down with Geneva's daughter Antoinette (whose father was Barbara's boyfriend) and discovers that Antoinette is repeating her mother’s negative cycle, including getting pregnant at a young age.
Iyanla travels to Chicago to work with two co-dependent sisters, Charese and Andrea. Charese increasingly finds herself torn between dedicating the time needed to be a mom and future wife to her fiancé, and caring for her irresponsible sister, Andrea. In a private sit-down, Iyanla discusses with Charese the situation with her sister. Charese reveals that she has felt responsible for Andrea since they were young, because they were neglected by their addict mother. Iyanla also works with Andrea and helps her to finally admit that she has a drinking problem. Andrea says it is hard for her to admit her issues with addiction, because she does not want to repeat the past mistakes of her mother. In an emotional episode, Iyanla must not only address the wounds of the sisters' past, but also persuade Andrea to take full responsibility for her future and to get help for her problems with alcohol, freeing her sister Charese to live her own life. 
Arica Adams, better known as "Hazel-E," is a reality television star formerly featured on Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood. As her fame began to rise with the show's ratings, her haters grew louder, putting her insecurities to the test. Eventually, Hazel-E publicly imploded on social media with a series of unhinged, racist rants that led to her dismissal from the series. Following her departure, Hazel-E pursued a music career that featured sexually explicit lyrics and provocative music videos, once again attracting fame for all the wrong reasons. Today, Arica is hoping to unmask her own vicious cycle of negative behavior and find better ways to express herself in an effort to mature the dysfunctional little girl that still lives within her.

Iyanla travels to Birmingham, Alabama, to work with daughters Kim and Annette, whose relationship with their mother, Charlene, is at a breaking point. As little girls, the sisters felt their mother traded being a good parent for relationships with men who were often controlling and even abusive to them. Years later, unresolved issues from their painful past threaten to destroy Kim and Annette's relationship with their mother, who is broke, alone and dependent on their support. In an emotional process, Iyanla works to reopen the lines of communication between the three women and helps hold Charlene accountable for her parenting missteps, before it's too late.
