By looking at Tamar Braxton and her life now, you would never know the kind of trouble she suffered while growing up and even some in her adulthood.
If you watched the previous seasons of “Braxton Family Values,” you would remember her talking to her friend April Daniels about her abusive past, but that’s not all, she was bullied as well.
In a recent interview with Ebony magazine, she revealed the details of her former abuse and being bullied.
I walked different, I had a different attitude, and I was picked on because I wasn’t like everybody else. You have to accept that about yourself. I think especially for women it’s important because it’s so hard for us.
I almost had to tell my story to each individual and then I decided that’s not what I’m going to do. I can’t make anybody believe, I can’t change anybody’s mind about anything. The abuse, it happened. I’m not all the way comfortable with sharing a lot of what happened to me yet, but what I said was true.
When I’m ready to talk about my abusive past I will, I’m sorry that I’m not. But if it wasn’t for God, I wouldn’t be here.
I was a shy person who had self-esteem issues trying to figure it out — now, I’ve gotten over my hangovers. You say, I’m comfortable and confident, it took a long time to get there. Maybe like a year or so before Braxton Family Values, I wasn’t that person. I was faking it til I make it, pretty much.
WOW! All we can say is look at her now!!!
