My name is Elly. I’m 29. And…
I hate small talk.
I want to talk about atoms, death, aliens, sex, magic, intellect, the meaning of life, faraway galaxies, music that makes you feel different, memories, the lies you’ve told, your flaws,your favourite scents, your childhood, what keeps you up at night, your insecurities and fears. I like people with depth, who speak with emotion from a twisted mind.
I don’t just want to know “what’s up?” (author unknown)
That is what this blog is; an open journal where I speak with emotion and passion about some serious deep shit, like: life (especially life with a mental illness), death, love, sex, memories, magic…Expect raw honesty. I’m aiming to give you the feels.
On a more “blah” note…
I’m originally from Brazil *does a little samba move* but now I live in London. This beautiful city has been home for the last 18ish years, and London, I think I’m in love.
I’m currently a full time spoonie; in 2015 I was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder and that changed me forever. Having a mental illness makes life very difficult, to put it mildly. So, I’m taking some time to unfuck myself, and immersing fully into recovery, a lot of therapy and into creating the person I’ve always wanted to be (Y’know, before society brainwashed me).
Prior to hitting rock bottom, I worked as a Project Coordinator in the events industry. This complex industry taught me a lot, one thing I am particularly grateful to have learned is that I did not want this career.
My experiences in life have all led to this moment in my life; I’ve hit rock bottom and now I’m working on my rising. A dear friend refers to my healing as witnessing me coming home to myself. I love that.
I’M FINALLY COMING HOME, BABY!
I am now growing into a ballsy-wonderful-emotional-compassionate-spiritual-sensitive-hippie-badass. And I am really starting to fucking love & respect the woman I’m becoming.
