Yes the relationship of Bella and Edward in Twilight is toxic
Who picks Edward is she blind lol
@Egirl28 She picks Edward because she was born to be a Vampire. They match in everything from personality, beliefs values, etc. She doesn't try to change him and he doesn't try to change her. Jacob did and Bella didn't like that. Edward is controlling and unhealthy (due to past trauma), Jacob is needy and clingy (due to him being younger and lacking emotional validation), Bella is just depressed (due to neglect and rejection). So it would make sense she was born for Edward, they just needed to meet. Some people are like that in real life. But they assume this to be healthy of a relationship and in reality it's not because neither of the people involved is HEALTHY. 1. Did it do a great job showing about loving a person for them? Yes.2. Did id do a decent job showing courtship and not having premarital sex? Yes.3. Did it show the importance of family and friends and why you need to appreciate what you have? Yes. Though it presented it from the view of a depressed person. I know. I suffered with it and emulated a LOT with Bella. My issue with her is that she chose to do DUMB and she is very smart, proven to be smart, she doesn't USE THEM at the right times! And in turn, she deliberately pushes her loved ones away because her entire identity revolved around Edward. She is at the end of the day highly selfish. She didn't have to be with Edward, she wanted to feed her fetish which she never got resolved. And sadly used Jacob also without respecting how her choices, emotions, etc are affecting him. He, however, had to be there, because who he needs was Renesmee, her daughter. Without her, she wouldn't have been born. Call it sick, I think so. But in reality that is how it goes and how it went historically. It wouldn't FLY today. I like the guys from Cinema Therapy. Team NOPE to either guys!
Most people who never been depressed, neglected, have a stable family life, etc don't KNOW what the lens of a depressed person, let alone a young woman desiring acceptance, love, and be seen as a person is LIKE. Because the lens is very different. So everybody will crap on her because they don't know. Even other people will crap on her even if they're depressed just to feel good about themselves. I can sadly admit that I did the same, not realizing I was suffering through depression too. I felt so bad because it became self-hate instead of realizing the reality that I was just as messed up as Bella was, and I had to answer for it growing up.
I too dealt with depression but I felt like Bella choose guys to try to fill that void she felt but thats just my opinion.
@Egirl28 Your right. Because she couldn't get that from either her mother who is self-centered and her father, who doesn't even know his own daughter. What identity does she have?
From what I saw, Bella never really chooses guys per se. More like she was dragged into it, and because it seems so appealing (boring school life), she chose an adventure instead of the mundane human life. Her life wouldn't have been any different if she picked Jacob. He's part wolf. So her being in Folks set the pace for her destiny anyway. Vampires would have still been after her whether she went with the first blond guy the other girl started dating during the first day at HS, or be alone and either be in Jacobs's way and Vampires ready to kill her and Edward still protecting her. She was already stuck. But Twilight is a negative portrayal of a healthy normal relationship. It had potential, but it was a mess.
