Tamar Braxton thanks God for saving her life after suicide attempt
Tamar Braxton is thanking the almighty for saving her life after her suicide attempt in July, and she is adamant that she will fully utilise her second chance at life.
Braxton was rushed to hospital in July after being found unresponsive by then-boyfriend David Adefeso at their Ritz Carlton residence in downtown LA.
She had reportedly intentionally overdosed on drugs and alcohol.
In a lengthy instagram post, Tamar thanked her maker for saving her life.
“God thank you for saving me! You know my true heart,” she wrote.
“Despite what the world may think of me, you kept me here for a reason. You are a God of second chances, and this second chance I won’t take for granted. The world can often be a dark place but I must resort to you for my light.”
“Ladies, have you ever felt like you put all your time and love into your children, job, relationship and family but often forget to love yourself?” she continued.
“That is where I have been for the past few years. I believe I have put a lot of time and effort in loving and giving my all to everything else but myself. I have allowed myself to stay in toxic situations including work environments.
“I’ve allowed my talents to be used for the wrong reasons. I have allowed myself to be used in too many ‘angry black girl’ narratives. I’m not angry at all.”
At the time of her suicide attempt, Braxton was reportedly at odds with WE tv the producers of her family’s flagship TV show and the resultant spinoffs.
“I was betrayed, taken advantage of, overworked, and underpaid,” she wrote. “I wrote a letter over 2 months ago asking to be freed from what I believed was excessive and unfair.
“I explained in personal detail the demise I was experiencing. My cry for help went totally ignored. However the demands persisted. It was my spirit, and my soul that was tainted the most.”
She also highlighted that her life, “begun to mean little to nothing, because it would only be how I was portrayed on television that would matter.
“It was witnessing the slow death of the woman I became, that discouraged my will to fight. I felt like I was no longer living, I was existing for the purpose of a corporations gain and ratings, and that killed me.”
