Mumbai: Depression isn’t easy but to talk about things that bother us takes guts. Tinaa Dattaa who was best known as Ichha from the popular television soap Uttaran came out in the open to talk about her abusive relationship with an industry outsider.
The actress suffered for five years in the relationship, but mustered the courage to come out in the open and speak about personal life publically, post breakup.
When Tinaa looks at the flashback of her life, she ponders over not loving herself a bit more than necessary. In a conversation with Hindustan Times, she said, "I should have told him that it is over. I don't blame the guy completely because I was also at a very tender age when I fell in love. I was so blinded in love that I thought it was okay for me to put up with an abusive relationship and allowed him to treat me the way he wished. But it was not okay. If a guy raises a hand on you, that means he is not man enough. One shouldn't let anybody take you for granted and nobody has the right to disrespect you and take away your peace and happiness from you."
If this wasn’t enough her stage of moving on post-break-up was traumatic. The actor had a tough time coping up with this life event. As she said, “I was so scared to trust people and went into depression. I remember I used to be really sad on the sets and used to hide in my make-up room and cry."
The lead actor of her current serial Daayan is all ready to begin the new leaf of her life. As she says, “I've consciously decided to focus on my life. I would love to settle down but I haven't met the right person. I'm out of an abusive relationship and want to settle down in life but not with someone from the industry."
