A Hot Mess (n.): Someone whose thoughts and appearance are in a state of disarray but who still maintains an undeniable beauty and allure. Are you sick of self-help books putting you to sleep? Would you like to transform your life but don’t know where to start? Self-proclaimed ‘ex hot mess’ L.K. Elliott has been there. Having endured abuse, neglect, and low self-esteem, Elliott found herself newly married, with everything she’d ever wanted, but suffering from depression. She has collected the wisdom she gleaned from years of therapy, research, and most of all pure life experience recovering from her depression into this volume.With honesty and humour, Elliott outlines transformational tools for self-love and stress relief in plain language – no self-help jargon here! She sees the potential for personal growth in everyone, and brings that relentless optimism to Confessions of an Ex Hot Mess, challenging readers to “choose now over later” to find love, happiness, and balance.
