Sexual, Emotional, Physical Abuse And Trauma Can Be Overcome As Tyler Perry Shows In Latest Movie

If you have ever seen a Tyler Perry movie, you know the movies are usually funny with a good message. Although too preachy for some, his underlying theme of faith and hope through horrible circumstances is a wonderful message.


His latest movie production , Precious took a much different tone but for me he has hit the jackpot. This movie shows how one has to learn to love one’s self even in the midst of terrible abuse.


Sometimes you can find the love you need within yourself, but sometimes it takes a caring person to show you your worth loving to help you.


I remember many times as a child feeling so down and worthless and it just took one act of kindness from someone to help me through the day. Just one person believing in you is sometimes all it takes.


The good news is there are many paths to for you to take to learn loving yourself.


Tyler Perry talks about his own sexual, emotional and physical abuse experiences as a child and said that the only way he got through it was through forgiveness. When we are in unforgiveness of someone we are their victim and therefore powerless to change. We keep oursleves stuck in the moment of our trauma for the rest of our lives and then we continue to act and behave from that perspective.


We must learn to forgive because through this forgiveness we can let go and forgive ourselves and be whole again.


I highly recommend seeing “Prescious” the movie. For a surviver of abuse, you can see how forgivness and learning to love yourself is the key to moving on to a happy and fuffilling life.

Tyler Perry reveals sexual abuse

By Michael Y. Park



( — There’s nothing funny about Tyler Perry’s latest work: a revealing account of the horrific abuse he suffered as a child.


Tyler Perry is the executive producer of the well-received new film “Precious.”


“I always thought I would die before I grew up,” the comedian writes in an uncharacteristically somber letter to fans on his Web site.


After watching a screening of the lauded movie “Precious,” about a 16-year-old girl who is physically and emotionally abused, the New Orleans native, 40, best known for his comic Madea character, reveals a flood of memories came back, and that “a large part of my childhood had just played out before my eyes.”


Beginning with his mother’s failed attempt to leave his abusive father, Perry recounts a horrific list of beatings and hardships he suffered.


“My father came home, mad at the world,” he writes. “He was drunk, as he was most of the time. He got the vacuum cleaner extension cord and trapped me in a room and beat me until the skin was coming off my back.”


Perry goes on to relate accounts of being seduced by a friend’s mother at age 10, to being molested by another friend’s father, to finding out that his own father was molesting a friend. And he tells of how his grandmother made a bizarre attempt to rid him of his allergies.


“She said she was going to kill these germs on me once and for all,” he says. “She gave me a bath in ammonia.”


But seeing “Precious,” he said, helped him realize once again that he had survived it all.


“It hit me so hard, I sat therein tears realizing that somehow, by the grace of God, I made it through,” writes Perry, who signed on as an executive producer on the film, which was also produced by Oprah Winfrey. “My tears were tears of joy, being thankful that I made it.”


And the most important lesson of all? Learning to forgive, he says.


“I know that there are a lot of people out there with stories far worse than mine but you, too, can make it. To those of you who have, welcome to life. I celebrate you,” he said. “We’re all PRECIOUS in His sight.”
