Ellen's fight from darkness to LIFE :D

Posted by The Banana Girl Team on

Hey Freelee

I hope you will read this message and that it will warm your heart, knowing how much your work and videos mean.

10 years ago i started to convert to vegan. Back then there were no fake meats and only soy milk in special stores. 
 
Almost from the start, your videos inspired me incredibly and I were watching them almost daily, soaking up your education and living something like raw-4 for a long time. I was a hard vore vegan as some might say , haha

Quite some years ago I got involved in a very abusive relationship which unfortunately (like in many cases) lasted way to many years, and drained me spiritually.

After years I finally managed to leave it, but by then I was already so spiritually drained and even deficient of carbs (when thinking back at it) that I started to include some vegetarian foods like pizza, just to have some kind of food.

More and more of the dairy products got into my diet and less and less fruits.

It was now one year almost exact since I left the abuse, and since then I have been extremely depressed, trying to heal the open wounds of my spirit.

On new years eve of 2022 i prayed to the anscetoral Gods of mine, (Odin, Thor & Freya) to please take me out if this misery of life once and for all, if they didnt want to make my life better. 

I was to scared to take my own life but could not bare another minute of my misery.
Since then, my life has changed completely. 

I have somehow miraculasly removed my attraction to toxic men, quit my long addiction to alcohol, weed (and drugs), started working out!

and yesterday something reminded me to watch how you are doing on Youtube once again, and after that i finally made the descition to go back to vegan and the high amount of fruit intake that I used to in my good years.

I am finally strong enough to live like im supposed to. And it is YOU who I thank, again and again throughout these 10 years, in terms of food, encouragement , education 

This is who I am and who I want to be - proud of being!

I have always loved animals,  and during that time I knew i wasnt giving a shit about them when eating their dairy as vegetarian.

I just wanted to clarify when you say sometimes "you were never vegan" I sure was vegan, but when one becomes that spiritually weakened,  ones not only basic life standards but whole life goes away.

However in a true vegan case, one will always go back to veganism and a high carb diet. 
 
That is what I proudly have now. I have my life back, so also my standards.

Thank you Freelee , I love you very much
