Personal post/ getting to know me:
hey, if you don’t know me, well, hi I’m ella, the owner of this account! let me introduce myself! 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜
Back story to who I am;
well, my name is ella, I’m in 8th grade, 13 years old & yes I am very young,but much more mature then your ideal 13 year old.
I grew up to fast, I shaved my legs for the first time in 3rd grade, after I found out that’s what popular girls did.
I also wore makeup everyday for the first time in 3rd grade, and from there on, i just wanted to keep growing up, fitting in with teenagers & all of that. 5 years later, I’ve changed a lot, I write poetry, read books, I love to draw & be nice to people. I’ve given up on the whole popularity competition and tried to find those important to me, found things I liked to do, tried not to live on my phone like every other teenager I know. I had an actual mental breakdown that lasted a good month before I decided to give up all social media, except for a instagram account I only let my closest friends follow& YouTube, because I wanted to be forgotten about you could say. I wanted to be remember by those who cared and forgotten by everyone who didn’t. It made it easy to find my true friends! This happened roughly 7 months ago, and I’ve been recovering since. This isn’t my whole story, but if you are interested in knowing, dm me & I’ll
Let you know the rest. I’d like to think I’ve humbled since I gave up all social media! I’m trying to find who I am with many bumps in the road , but I am getting there. The series of mental breakdowns in the past year(s) has helped me find my voice in art and poetry! 🌎🌎🌎🌎🌎🌎🌎🌎🌎🌎🌎🌎🌎🌎
My mental illness:
as some of you may know, I have ocd, depression & anxiety! My ocd gets the worst of me, but I’m slowly recovering!! I was diagnosed with depression in roughly 4th grade, anxiety in 6th & ocd in 8th ( which is now !!) I do cbt, therapy, take Zoloft , and get the loving support I need from my friends and mostly family! 🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡🧡
I love to read, write poetry & storys , draw, paint , press flowers, and try my best to help out others.
