"You said that people will be able to take what you tell them, but what if you know that they will fall apart if you do?" This was the question a member of the audience posed to Oprah and her longtime friend, relationship expert Iyanla Vanzant, last Friday evening after the live weekly edition of Oprah's Lifeclass on OWN TV.
Long after Friday's show ended, the conversation kept going and the cameras kept rolling, capturing the exclusive footage above. Oprah and Iyanla shared their insight into how to have the difficult conversations we all need to have in life, with confidence and without regret.
Later, Oprah and Iyanla tackled the equally difficult question of how to honor your own emotions when you feel pressure to be the morale booster.
