We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
'It would weird to post a really cheerful video after my grandfather died," translates to, "It would be weird to post a really sexualised video after my grandfather died." I've only watched about a minute of the video, I'm outside and don't want to use up data, but it looks boring within that tiny amount of time. I wish she'd of come back with a solo video, a makeup tutorial or something. Julia is pretty without makeup. Eileen looks terrible, her hair looks like a pink pyramid.
Sadly I think it's the latter. I think she would have told us if she was in a relationship, also I doubt it would be easy for her to date as she is at the moment. It would also explain why she isn't able to pull herself out of her depression.
Julia was renting a room in a house when she was with Maria. She said in one of the videos they did together that she mostly stayed with Maria though, so they were not officially living together. Maria was far more boundried than Eileen and I'd say had more common sense. Her responses to people were well thought out and logical, like she said she wasn't offended by being mistaken for Julia's mother because she'd make that assumption herself if she were a stranger. Gosh I miss Maria lol. Part of me thinks they broke up because Julia wanted to use the relationship for attention and Maria wasn't up for it. The first of Julia's videos to go viral was the one where she introduced Maria as her girlfriend. Sadly it was a lightbulb moment for Julia.
In my experience the attention craving doesn't usually manifest in someone with BPD this way and isn't an official defining feature of the disorder. More often than not a person with BPD wants attention from one person in particular, not in general, this is mostly because they need reassurance from that person. Attention seeking is actually not written into the DSM-5 criteria as a symptom of BPD. I believe people with BPD have unfairly been labelled as attention seeking in the general sense, a lot of the time they are simply distressed and don't know how to relieve the pain. To someone on the outside, it may appear that their behaviour is all for attention. I can't diagnose Trisha Paytas but I'd say she is more likely to have Histrionic Personality Disorder. HPD is a cluster B Personality Disorder and has some of the same traits as BPD but the attention seeking is a main characteristic and is written into the DSM-5 criteria. I agree BPD can manifest in many way and I don't negate the idea that some people may use their diagnosis for attention and sympathy. However BPD is very misunderstood by the general public. if you want to discuss this further, feel free to PM me as I don't want to derail this thread
There is something I've noticed about people like Eileen. They always have an intense hatred of anyone right wing but at the same time they tend to practice similar behaviour, they just change the context to justify it. I know someone in my personal life, she's a far left anti-capitalist and hates anything remotely Tory yet she's by far the most narcissistic person I've ever met and has no issue with abusing people. Eileen is a similar character, hates the right with intensity and claims about a million identities (i.e socialist, feminist) but in truth is just as bad. I hate Trump but at least with him what you see is what you get. I am left wing myself but not an extremist.
Her BPD video intensely annoyed me. Why do some people treat BPD like it's cool and tready? She almost certainly does not have BPD, very few people with that diagnosis would enjoy the attention she craves.
