A lot of people in this thread are just so incredibly heartless. She admits to having BPD, we all know she was severely sheltered and abused by her mother, we also know she had no solid concept of what friendship/companionship/empathy/trust is, yet you're just basically telling her to get over it and "move on". Trauma doesn't work this way. As someone who also dealt with a scarily similar family life (incredibly sheltered, highly abusive parents, not allowed to make my own decisions in what I wore, how I acted, what I was interested in, who I was allowed to talk to, I mean I also ran away from home in the end) its so so hard to get out of the trauma you've lived when everyone wants you to just act like everything is fine and to live your life in a neurotypical way. She's trying to reach out to the only people she feels like she has a connection to (via YouTube/insta) and it's clear she's hurting. I did similar things at her age. I got into toxic relationships not understanding the abuse that was happening to me until it was critical. I just hope some of you really REALLY think about how callous you're being towards her when she's clearly in the middle of a BPD spiral. I hope she has friends around her right now, cause she sincerely needs them.
As someone who has had a past *similar* to Venus in terms of crazy parents trying to find me, most of the interactions I had with my parents after I left home were through my friends/boyfriend because I didn't even want to hear their voices. 8 years on and it still gives me goosebumps when I think about it. The fact that Manaki is trying to separate Margo from Venus is probably on Venus' terms. As in, she's most likely asking him to do those things because she doesn't want to have any contact with Margo. We don't know how this whole ordeal has effected Venus' mental state. I had severe paranoia and couldn't leave my house without someone with me for at least 8-9 months. I hope for her sake Margo eventually leaves her alone, because I wouldn't wish these feelings on my worst enemy.
My partner and I speak like that to each other all time, and it's known we're just joke-angry with each other. I'm going to say it was a translation error, because she doesn't look upset at all??? That one tiny frame of a sad face isn't really an indication of her "being sad" at all. Tbh, I enjoyed the video and genuinely laughed a few times, so that was pretty good.
I honestly don't hate this video. The pacing was good, the topic was fine, the editing was good, she didn't make me want to stab my ears with forks. I hope she goes down this route, it's pretty cute and fun.
Just a quick note, as a runaway survivor; Sometimes it's hard to try to gain back things like bank accounts and whatnot if your parents are still linked to them, as in some cases, the parent needs to be contacted about what has happened. I do speak from a position similar to what Venus is currently experiencing. So for those wondering why she isn't doing to regain accounts and things, that could be a very real possibility. I know it took me almost 3 months of harassment and stalking to build up the courage to get a restraining order because I knew I would have to see my parents. So for her right now, that could be the main issue. Also, Mayo could possibly still have legal documents of hers like birth certificates which I think are needed in terms of points of ID to regain bank accounts.
My person theory is that Mayo is NOT the father (mother?) of the clothes and that Venus got full custody but Mayo couldn't accept that and is now trying to take the clothes outside of her visitation rights, so now poor Venus has to go into hiding so Mayo can't get the poor clothes ever again ):
Is there something an admin or mod can do to nip the ED talk in this thread? There's a topic for that and it's a really REALLY touchy topic for a lot of people. I don't think it's fair to rattle on about it when we have other things to focus on. Namely, Mayo and ~tHe sKiRt~ **dun DUUUUUUUUUN**
I'm honestly impressed with this video. I didn't have to mute this one?? Even the way she spoke and held herself in this video is really REALLY impressive. Looking forward to seeing what kind of content she brings out next.
^^^ that's how I feel. Her photoshopping isn't lying to people, seeing as there are plenty of images out there with how she looks without shooping. Like I said, it's part of her image so when she's trying to "sell" something (a product, more views to a video, etc) she going to shoop to get the added attention. I've never had an issue with people using photoshop in their images, it's when they're in 110% denial and then bully others for not shooping that I personally have a problem.
Probably because who entire online persona is built around it. I don't condone it, but that would be why she does it. She wants to cater to a certain crowd so she's going to shoop herself in whatever way will keep people interested.
