Welcome to the world of Isabella Durante.
This site has been a type of diary for me for many years – unedited, free flowing and come as you are. Sometimes the entries are rants, sometimes they are an attempt at creativity (rarely), sometimes they make no sense. Due to the lack of consistency over the years, the entries will be random, the people mentioned may disappear with no rhyme or reason.
In 2022 it is my hope that the entries will start to make sense of the last decade, start to be a diary of one kind or another. A voice for us all. A place where we share our experiences, our past and our present.
Since the start of this blog a lot has changed. My life has exploded multiple times. Somehow each explosion has not obliterated me – I have managed to survive, rebuild and revive myself. I don’t know how. I truly don’t. But I have survived a lot in the last 10 years. Even a lot since I was born.
People tell me that I can write, that I have an amazing story to tell – they cannot believe what I have managed to overcome, rebuild from and still be able to laugh … and love.
My story is not the most violent, depraved, crazy or wildest story you will ever read. But I have had some incredible life experiences to date, that in reality, explains why I have found it easier to split myself from life.
Split selves have meant that I could process life from a very young age when I was required to be one way with one person, another with another carer, another way with a stranger and another way with a loved one. To the extreme.
But anyway. This is me. This is us. Unedited.
Lots of luv,
