Pretty On Pretty Off
The Journey Within
Have you ever questioned if you’ll ever find true love and freedom? Have you been through challenges that have left you faced with decisions that were all too real? Have you ever thought that your built-up shame and self-hatred would block you from a life of happiness? You probably have as did, Kimesha Coleman, but, like her, you too, shall overcome.
As a single mother of three, Kimesha struggles to find stability. After a second divorce, she was on the brink of a nervous breakdown and had to make a choice. Would she succumb to the role of a victim once again? Or, would she stare down defeat and decide to battle it head-on with one goal in mind: winning.
Despite a life of enduring tragic loss, divorce, toxic relationships, and failure, Pretty On Pretty Off demonstrates that there is always light at the end of the tunnel and through hard work, perseverance, and dedication you can obtain happiness. Kimesha candidly details her harrowing encounters with toxic relationships, the crippling aftermath, her growing through pains—all leading her to success.

Why did you choose to write about your experience with domestic violence?
