Tammy Brown wants several things out of life, to live a wholesome life, become somebody, and for her boyfriend to marry her, talk to her, share in her dreams and inspirations. Hurt by parental abandonment, child abuse, broken relationships, and verbal abuse, she struggles with lasting feelings of depression, anger, and bitterness. Now, 38 years old, and recently released from prison, she feels she has no sense of direction or support to accomplish her dreams, no one to believe in her. After tragedy hits, she has to make some pretty tough decisions, to hang in there or just give up. As you journey with her, and her life decisions, you too will learn that forgiveness doesn't mean that you deny the other person's responsibility for hurting you, and it doesn't minimize or justify the wrong. But it within itself is a commitment to a process of change. Moving away from your role as victim and releasing the control and power the offending person and situation have had in your life, in order to find compassion and understanding of your perpetrator. Embracing forgiveness, allows peace, hope for the future, joy and gratitude for one's life.
