Kyrielle Adelshine – Alter Ego

Kyrielle Adelshine is my alter ego, my blog’s alter ego, and in and of herself, a set of alter egos.  Her stories are my stories.  I share them in the name of peace, understanding and acceptance of those who are different.

When I was growing up, I always felt different.  I did not understand why or what it was that made me feel that way, I just knew in my heart that I was, and that I suffered greatly because of it.

I learned in early adulthood, that part of what makes me so different from others, is a mood disorder known as Bipolar I Disorder.  At first, I blamed it a curse, but later learned of its many blessings as well.  One such gift has been the recognition that as human beings, we are all different in some way.  And in that sense, our differences could unite us, if only we could overcome the fear of sharing our true selves with others.

Part of the fear in being different, as I’ve learned from experience, is the fear of nonacceptance by others.  And, while I have come a long way in learning to accept myself as a whole, I am not yet entirely exempt from the fear of discrimination.

As such, “Kyrielle Adelshine” is the penname that I will use, until which time my currently separate personal and professional lives fuse into one.  “Kyrielle” is a variation on the phrase “kyrie eleison”, Greek for “lord have mercy”, and a phrase used in the song “Kyrie” by Mr. Mister which my mama used to play for me when I was little.

Here, check it out for yourself, but don’t forget…

Do turn it up loud (!), don’t miss 2:43/4:14 (!!), and yayy for the 80s!!!  ;0)

  4. Awesome! I am totally impressed with the wonderful writings by Kyrielle. They are really unique and clearly a cut above the rest….reminds me the words of Dr. Seuss “Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.”.

    You are absolutely amazing. Please do keep up the great work, and continue to promote greater awareness.
