Now this girl can definitely be mixed with something, but I'm 99% sure she is faking. If she went to middle school in Korea, she should have high, if not perfect fluency. At a conversational level at least. Her Korean doesn't depict this. Also her following/followers list on instagram is very telling. For someone who went to middle school in Korea and grew up there, even set to 'debut', she sure seems lack a lot of Korean friends. Now, she may not have a lot of friends in real life, but the fact she isn't following any of her 'Korean' family or having any old friends is sus.
Finally she is accepting having an ED! Yes, I agree with those who say she should go back to Europe. Mental health treatment around the world is not the same, especially in Japan. In areas such as Eastern Asia and Africa, eating disorders slip under the radar. Treatment can also be limited, so going to areas where they are more equipped to handle such a case would be best.
If someone asked me why I am offended, I think I have the right to explain to them why I am offended. I don't not expect people to watch what they say online about me (I never said that, thank you very much), but if they say something to me and it offends me, that is up to me and I have the right to speak out about it because it pertains to me. This isn't a competition; trust me, because of my field of study and work, it is my civil duty to encourage her to get psychological help and step back from social media as she heals. No one has to agree with my opinion, it is merely an opinion.
Many of you seem very confused about my original statement. My original comment was to encourage her seeking help (therapy isn't enough in her case). I personally feel like on this forum there is a huge focus on how Margaret's actions led her to this state and being in the medical and psychological field I see at this point it's a useless discussion. Why? Because this girl is literally dying. Her health is at risk and because of my work and experience, I can confidently say until she is in a mentally and physically safe condition, she will never be able to begin to heal from her childhood.
I'm only offended that the person who responded to me assumed that I did not "have any idea what it would be like to spend all your time with a narc mother who demands work, sell yourself, give up your youth, etc.". So yes, I will find this assumption offensive, and had she left it out, I'd have no issue. If this bothers you, I simply cannot help you. My personal opinion that the focus should be on Venus getting help remains the same, I choose not to focus on Margaret because the damage is already done. That is my personal decision.
I actually do know what it's like, so I can put myself in her shoes--- thank you very much. My message is one that any sane person can agree on: Venus needs help. As a fan of hers, I know there's no use in constantly bringing up Margaret when I see what she needs now more than ever is help for her health and to get back on track.
After rewatching the video, I really think Venus needs to get off the internet and go get psychological help. Venus is an adult, and needs to put her future first! As an individual who has gone through many similar things, I can assure her mental health and emotional support is the only way to a better future. Everyone here is blaming Margaret, missing the point entirely. There comes a time in each individuals life when you can't keep saying, "they had a horrible upbringing". Venus, we recognize your past and hardships, but it is time to take responsibility of your future and seek out HELP.
You make a really good point! I really do think if Margaret had a friend/companion/romantic interest in her life, she'd start moving away from Venus. Like you stated though, a relationship with her would be... difficult, but if she had someone who would push her to seek mental help while being able to not let her get away with her craziness, I bet her antics would decrease.
I honestly think she likes Japan/Japanese culture out of her own free will. Margaret seems to have just jumped along when she saw it was profitable. But you can tell even as an adult she's passionate and enjoys it!
As religion is very dear to me, I pray Margaret is turning to religion and God to become a better and kinder person. I do agree with people who say not to wonder so much about her being Jewish, with Margaret you never really know. I just hope this isn't a publicity stunt!
This is wonderful to see! Tbh, I hope this health scare really changes the way Venus sees life and her health. Eating disorders are so hard, but I hope if she's still struggling with one, she reaches out for help. She isn't a teenager anymore, and as an adult, she needs to put her health and future first! I also think aftter she has fully recovered, she should explore job opportunities or university! Time focus on self growth and improvement, Venus!
