Tyler Perry posted an open letter on his website and when you read it you just can't believe that it all happened to one person and that the person it happened to is one of the most gifted people in Hollywood and seems to have overcome all the challenges he faced as a child.
In the letter he says that he thought he would die before he ever became an adult because of what he suffered as a child. His dad would beat him with extension cords until the skin was coming off Tyler's body. Tyler was seduced by a woman when he was 10 and molested by another man at about the same age. Tyler found out his father was molesting one of Tyler's friends and how Tyler's grandmother thought the best way for Tyler to get rid of his germs and allergies was to take baths in ammonia.
Whenever anyone ever complains about crap they went through in their life and how that is the reason they are messed up, I am going to think about Tyler Perry and what he has accomplished and how it is possible to cope and to overcome.
