Purple FREEDOM: Breaking the Cycle
“She stood in silence too afraid to walk away, too afraid to speak and too afraid to leave. She knew that any word she would utter at this moment would leave her black and blue and she was tired. Tired of crying. Tired of fighting, Tired of living in the walls of shame, guilt, and fear. These days it seemed God didn’t hear her silent cries, so she sat there taking verbal hit after hit after hit until her body and mind became numbed to it”.
Tamika Green always dreamed of her Happily Ever After, beautiful home, good husband, smart and healthy children, and a life she could be proud of. On the the outside looking in Tamika has it all, she has a loving husband who is a successful business owner, active father, good looking,charming, and God-fearing man. She has her handsome son, they call him “the ladies man” he’s athletic, popular, makes good grades, and destine for a spot with the NBA. She has a good job, great friends, and a life her friends say they envy. But behind the pictured perfect life, beautiful home, beautiful family, and her Godly demeanor , Tamika has learned to mask the deep rooted secrets that hold her captive in an abusive passive aggressive prison. Her fight for freedom will lead her down a journey of generational abuse connected through cycles of trauma and revolving doors of pain. Her faith will be tested, her life will be threatened, and her world will come crumbling down on her. The life she once knew will all seem like a dream, but Tamika will soon learn in order to break free she has to dig deep and uproot the core of the pain. Breaking the cycle will not be easy, but healing is necessary for FREEDOM.
