The Tormenting Factor: Generation to Generation

Front Cover
AuthorHouse, 2011 - Biography & Autobiography - 512 pages
This author's biography is an ongoing account of abuse, rape, and torment. It is written with a provocative tool of undercurrents that substantiate how generational curses are formed. The factual scenario of family disgruntling bears witness to the "learned behavior" that causes extreme anxiety and emotional torment. This story is not about revenge or judgment. It is simply a chronicle to give readers a comparative view of themselves and their families with imminent clarity. Although the original purpose of this book was to share "deep" secrets with the author's children, the crux of these secrets had already influenced too many circumstances and characteristics of her progeny. Repeated family behavior had developed into curses that were passed from generation to generation. If relationships are your enemy, and you have somehow moved from one abusive relationship to another, you will learn "why" you continue to enter these same types of relationships. If your body is twisted due to bitterness and unforgiveness, you will learn how attitude promotes pain. If you are haunted by shadows of your past, this book may help you understand and deal with your emotions. No one is exempt from some type of family transference. Emotional effects may go unnoticed by others, although they alter our lives and usually require resolution. There is a heavily populated audience of esoteric families who are crying out everywhere because they have been hurt. If you have experienced abuse, Ima's biography may be difficult to read. Humor and faith are both excellent coping skills to help deal with the dark side. This book contains enough tincture (an admixture of humor) to help cope with emotions as readers experience the heaviness of this story. Laughter is the morphine that will numb your pain until your resolution comes.

About the author (2011)

When the author first began the accounts of this book, she was in the presence of danger. Imprisoned within the framework of an abusive marriage, she thought she would never survive to tell her grandchildren about the God she knew. As the daughter of a man who "owned" the Eastern Kentucky town in which she was raised, she should be destined for success, but "recurring" fear scared away all buoyancy. She viewed her life through the barrel of a thirty eight with victim mentality.This was not her first abusive marriage. Living with a contrite heart, she wondered "why" relationships that appeared to be "normal" ended with the pain of abuse and betrayal. Through visceral study, she recognized repeated "patterns" of abuse. These patterns seemingly passed to her children. This cognitive process revealed that "fear" had been her "Nanny" in a strained relationship with a parent who suffered many aberrations. This departure from "what is normal" had intensified and followed her into each new relationship. Although she constantly changed her circumstances, violation of her will through sodomy, rape, and infidelities, was the crucible that qualified her to be the perfect candidate for bitterness and unforgiveness.Abuse, divorce, and generational curses were responsible for Ima's rudimentary education, but through the course of writing this book, Ima shifted from victim, to survivor. There is an element of mystery to the name, "Ima Survivor", but this is the name she has chosen to conceal her identity. Ima's "nom-de-plume" could easily be "Ima Victor", or "Ima Trophy" (of God's grace), and you can be this as well, by reading and understanding her story.Ima has successfully employed her own bad experiences to help others. She currently works in the mental health industry as Operations Manager of a residential addictions treatment facility.
