Bianca Dye: I Thought The Violence Was My Fault
“In my early 20’s I was a lot.
I was loud. Maybe too loud. Maybe sometimes too much.
I was boisterous, young and naive.”
Earlier this year Bianca opened up about a story that had haunted her for the past 20 years.
It was the story of her own terrifying brush with domestic violence.
After years of staying quiet, in an unplanned moment she revealed the night that will stay with her forever.
She was left beaten and hiding in the kitchen, fearing for her life.
Now she is talking about that experience again for Domestic Violence Awareness month.
But this time she has another message she wants to share with those women who may find themselves in a similar situation.
“I may have been too loud. I may have been too much.
But I now know that nothing I ever said, nothing I ever wore, neither I or we were ever to blame.
There’s never an excuse, never a justification for domestic violence and no one is immune to it.”
Watch above as she reads an excerpt from an article she has written for this weekend’s Sunday Mail.
