February 16, 2021

Ella Mills of Deliciously Ella is a champion of plant-based living, an award-winning author, and an adept businesswoman.

Here, Ella also opens up about her lows and feeling vulnerable at times - not least where it all began with a debilitating condition that started her quest for change.

In this episode, Ella talks to Helen about:

  • Loss
  • Regret
  • Chronic illness
  • Depression
  • Trolling and online abuse
  • Feelings of rejection and how we gravitate towards negative feedback
  • Having a high profile and the challenges that come with it
  • Allowing ourselves to be vulnerable
  • The importance of ‘acceptance’
  • And how ‘everything passes...even when it feels insurmountable’

 

Trigger: depression
