Tyler recalled violent beatings from his father during childhood, molestation by 4 different adults, and other horrors. He was so depressed he actually considered suicide.
Tyler forgave hs father, though the man never apologized. Coming forward and opening up was certainly a way to get back at the man and a huge sign of bravery. He said he decided to speak out in order to help other men who have been affected by abuse and I am sure he has. Despite everything he went through, Tyler has become successful and seems to lead a happy life. He’s a great example to others.
