The truth is, telling my story is what saved me.
So, speak up.
Make the world uncomfortable with your honesty. It does not matter what the consequences will be. Stop preserving the beauty of an ideal picture-perfect life and instead expose the truth.
Fight like a girl.

They know how to make you feel beautiful, safe and loved.
They know how to fill your life with joy and unconditional love.
They also know when somebody is empty inside.
They can simply smell a rotten soul.
So listen to them.
If your pet is afraid of somebody you know, run.
I say that because too often we put our own pets in danger by ignoring their behavior.
Most of the times if an animal starts to act up is because they feel threatened or they want to protect us.
I wish I had “listened” to my pets more in the past... they definitely “knew”. _________________________________________________
Here is a picture of me and @nataliadifolco new baby Carl (Carletto). He is the most beautiful little bunny ever (I know is a dog but I like to call him bunny). He likes me, so I take it as a sign that I must be a pretty likable person 😜
Thank you @johndifolco and @nataliadifolco for letting me take a picture with your baby.

Love fills your life with passion, joy and desire.
The desire to be the strongest and the happiest you can be.
As you all know, I fought for so long to not let the circumstances change my believes.
To keep trusting in love and keep believing that one day I would have found somebody willing to be there for me, lift me up and show me that I was right.
It’s strong, it’s fun and it’s all what we need to thrive in life.
We all deserve to experience that.
So don’t give up.
Be strong and trust in love.

And so this is 38.
This is me.
Happier then I have ever been also if, occasionally, I still fall apart.
I guess that is indeed the best part of me:
My ability to be emotional and despite my failures, always reinvent my self.
Despite the pain, never give up and always trust in love.
Today I celebrate my birthday, I celebrate life and all that comes with living it fully.
The past year was a hell of a year and I would not trade it for anything else.
I lost most of those I used to considered friends, my home and my car.
I cried all the tears I had.
I got injured, fired from studios and I struggled financially more than I should.
I realized who loved and supported me. Who my true friends are.
I learned that a home is not a white fenced house filled with emptiness but is a place where you feel safe and loved, a place where you share a part of your soul with who you want to spend the rest of your life with.
I bought my own car, the car of my dreams and I did it alone (well with some help to be honest :).
I am learning to respect, nourish and take care of my body.
I wiped my tears away, rolled my sleeves up and start again.
I worked so hard to achieve my goals.
And one day at a time all my dreams came true.
I am in love, I am safe, grateful and excited about the future.
I am everything I always wanted to be and even more.
So happy birthday to me.
You are getting older Eleonora and that’s a gift.
Be proud of it.
Be proud of yourself.

I have the tendency to be fiercely loyal to the people I love.
If you hurt them, I will confront you.
If I love you, I got your back.
This side of my personality became one of biggest weakness in my past relationships.
If you read articles and studies on narcissists’ behaviors you realize that they often blame your relationship problems on the other people in your life, cutting you off not only from those who care about you but also from the people who can expose the truth about them.
And that’s what happened to me.
I was turned against a lot of people, especially women.
And I let it happen.
It was wrong.
I was wrong.
We should be there for each other.
Women supporting women, people supporting people.
Today I made amend with those I hurt and their forgiveness is giving me the strength I needed to stop being afraid.
I realized that alone I felt broken and lost and that’s was his biggest victory.
Today I am not alone anymore and I feel invincible.
So let’s all stand together.

He thinks I am too old.
Too old to have kids, too old to rebuild my life, too old to be attractive.
He thinks my career is over, to explain why he compares me to an old car that lost her value.
According to him, I should cover my body because apparently after a woman turns 23 years old her skin looses quality and it’s not pleasant to touch any more.
My nudity offends him...
Because is beautiful.
I offend him because I am beautiful.
And he can’t handle that.
It’s so simple.

I used to date somebody that believed women were resting at the bottom of the “man-pyramid” due to his own, patriarchal way of thinking. A pyramid created to bring order in this world. An order that would see man at the top—powerful and invincible.
A role I needed to be sure he achieved. A role I should have respected and feared. Because, according to him, that’s what all women want: power and money.
You are probably thinking that this is the story of how I blame him for what he has done to me, or the story where I am going to vilify him in an attempt to victimize myself.
But you are wrong.
This is the story of me taking responsibility for the choices I have made. This is the story of me becoming aware of who I am and finally taking action to get back the self that I had lost in the desperate attempt to fill love within a narcissist’s heart.
If you are interested in reading my story, today @elephantjournal posted my new article: The Day I Left my Abuser was the Day I Decided to Stop Fighting to be Loved. ~
You can check the link in my bio to read it.
It took me a long time and a lot of work to realize that “I chose to become part of the problem because, by accepting his words, I betrayed every woman I know.”
And for that I apologize.
I apologize for my silence and for my decision to love him more then myself.
To all those women who recently accepted my apologizes and offered me their support, thank you.
This article is for you.

My new class Heart Source just launched on @alo.moves!
This class is a slow flow designed to prepare both your body and soul to backbend.
Backbends are therapeutic, healing and fun. They can challenge you physically, mentally and emotionally. Incorporating
them into your practice helps you present a more positive and lifted version of yourself to the world.
This class will help to open up the front body and bring new space, awareness and life into the places within
yourself that are often closed off.
This class targets specific body parts like the hips, shoulders and thoracic spine in a challenging but
Together we’ll move, breathe and flow to open the areas in your body needed to achieve a deep and fulfilling
I can’t wait to know what do you think about it and as usual, I am extremely grateful for your love and support.
