Former NFl player Aveion Cason, who appeared on Oprah’s Lifeclass with Iyanla Vanzant, was confronted by his child that he left behind 10 years ago. The episode was aired on OWN Sunday night. Check below for a preview video of the epiosde.
“I grew up without a father,” Cason says. “I feel resentment with my father coming up because he’s never been around, and when I talk to my son, I feel like he feels the same way.”
As tears roll down the boy’s face, Iyanla walks over to encourage Aveion Jr. to share his feelings directly, in his own words. Aveion Jr. tells Iyanla that he hadn’t seen his father since he was about 4 years old. Now 13, he spent those near-10 years feeling abandoned and insecure.
