In this season of "Iyanla: Fix My Life," author and relationship expert Iyanla Vanzant met with Amy, a mother who left her husband and two teenage sons to go and live with another man. Amy reached out for Iyanla's help to fix her mistake and return home to her wounded family.
In this video, Iyanla explains why we cannot return to dead, broken relationships or circumstances. "Sometimes things just die," Iyanla says. "That doesn't mean that they can't come back to life, but they've got to come back as something new, not as the same old dead thing."
Watch now to get Iyanla's five steps for renewing a relationship in your life, moving forward -- and creating a "new normal."
You can catch "Iyanla: Fix My Life" Saturdays at 9 p.m. ET on OWN.
