What's wrong with Bella?

I've been seeing this question a lot lately. Twilight fans don't know what is wrong with Bella. I have written this article in order to try to explain exactly what is wrong with Bella. There are actually many things wrong with her, as I will be explaining in this article.

The first thing I will acknowledge is the mental instability of Bella Swan. In New Moon, Edward dumps her, and she becomes depressed. Now, I understand that it is very disheartening to have your boyfriend dump you. I would be able to understand if she had been depressed for, maybe two weeks? No more than a month. But Bella is depressed for several months. This is NOT normal. Bella has serious depression, and I mean the actual mental illness. Her father probably should have taken her to a psychologist. If unattended, depression can lead to suicide. This, however, is not the reason Bella attempts suicide. Later on, she starts hearing Edward's voice in her head. The voice comes whenever she is about to do something reckless. This is a very serious condition called schizophrenia. If you know someone with schizophrenia, they should be taken immediately for help. It is this illness that drove Bella to attempt suicide. There is also evidence of her having Narcissistic Personality Disorder (compensatory). This is because she feels a need for attention at all times. In New Moon, as soon as Jacob starts giving her all the attention he has, she felt better. She gropes for attention constantly. It is even arguable that her clumsiness may in fact be a need for attention. She must have an ideal relationship (in her mind), and that is actually a symptom of this disorder. She does not feel for anybody except the Cullens and Jacob. She does not feel for her friends, she does not feel for her parents, she does not feel for anyone unworthy of her attention. She is arrogant and she takes advantage of her friends, then blames them if they don't want to continue the friendship. These are all signs of Narcissistic Personality Disorder, and I believe that the compensatory classification fits her best (that is passive-aggressive, with signs of Avoidant Personality Disorder). Avoidant Personality Disorder is another thing Bella may have. She is very sensitive to negative comments about herself and she is extremely inhibited in fear of humiliation (though I still hold my argument of her need for attention). She doesn't talk a lot (though this is not because of shyness, but because she sees most other people as below her) and she definitely uses escapism. This leads to Passive-Aggressive Personality Disorder. She sees everyone else as below her, thinking that her fellow classmates, who went out of their way to welcome her to Forks, are shallow, immature idiots who are not worth her time. She does hint this to them at some points throughout the story. This may also be an explanation as to why she mistreats her friends. She has Histrionic Personality Disorder because of her need for attention and her intense sexual desire for Edward (which is ALL it is. To like someone for only their looks is NOT love) and she does have shallow, over-exaggerated emotions. Another thing Bella shows VERY strong evidence of having is Dependent Personality Disorder. You can see this by her reaction to Edward dumping her. Her depression arose because of her psychological need for Edward (not to be mistaken for love).

Wow, I even shocked myself by how messed up Bella is in her head.

Bella is very shallow. She "loves" Edward because... he's hot. That's it? She never talks about his personality. She only talks about his "liquid topaz eyes", something she's explained only about a few hundred times, amongst other physical appearances. She wants to be a vampire because she wants to be beautiful like Edward. She even admits it herself in Eclipse. That is the strongest reason for her desire for becoming a vampire. That is extremely vain. She thinks that all good people are beautiful. That is a very shallow thought, and it says some pretty nasty things about her sense of judgment (though we all know that is not too good because of all the bad decisions she makes throughout the books).

Bella abuses her friends. She takes them for granted and only talks to them when it will be for her advantage. Here's a common example; Jessica. Jessica welcomes her warmly and adopts her into her group of friends when Bella first arrives at Forks High School. What does she get in return? Bella thinking how shallow and idiotic she is? Then, Bella doesn't speak to Jessica or anybody else for months after Edward leaves her. Her father threatens to take her to a psychiatrist unless Bella becomes more social. That is the only reason she speaks to Jessica again. She goes to the movies, completely tuning Jessica out and ignoring the girl, then goes and puts herself and Jessica in potential danger because she wants to hear Edward's voice. This is selfish and completely stupid. Jessica stays behind with Bella, even though she (just) figured out that Bella has only been using her. So what happens? Bella says that she is a bad friend because she wouldn't talk to Bella again. Where's the logic in that? Don't even get me started on Jacob. She leads him on every other day, even after everything he did for her in New Moon, and then, the day after she snogged him, when he is in great physical pain, she dumps him. Yes, she feels sorry for a couple of minutes. She's felt sorry for a couple of minutes constantly, then felt that justified her right to use him all over again. She does not care about him, no matter what she claims.

Bella has an extremely undeveloped character. She has no life. What are her hobbies? Can you name me just one? No, motorcycling does NOT count. Bella doesn't really like motorcycling and was going to give it up had she not wanted to "please" (more like lead on) Jacob. So... what is there? Reading doesn't count either, I'm afraid. That is another example of Stephenie Meyer telling, but not showing. We only see Bella actually reading one (1) time throughout the series, and that is very briefly at the very beginning of Eclipse. So we don't have any hobbies for her. Then, she is utterly Mary Sue. Where are her character flaws? No, clumsiness does NOT count as a character flaw. Flawless characters are very bad. They are almost always bound to be an utter fail. Bella is automatically popular when she arrives at school, which is extremely unlikely and unrealistic. She is strikingly beautiful, and she ends up becoming the most beautiful and most "powerful" vampire ever to exist. She doesn't have to work at her special diet; she's a natural! She gets everything handed to her on a silver platter. She works for nothing, she sacrifices nothing. Also, have you noticed that her character description fits perfectly into what Stephenie Meyer looks like? Bella is screaming "author self-insert". In Breaking Dawn, it goes into Jacob's POV (point of view). Bella is suddenly found saying "oh, everything will be okay" and with a "life is wonderful!" attitude. Where did that come from? For the entire series, Bella has been the first one to say "WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!" Once we go back into Bella's POV, that pessimistic attitude comes right back. So where did the sudden burst of happiness come from?

She is also a very bad parent. She ignores her baby to make love to Edward. She doesn't care that Jacob uncharacteristically became a pedophile, lusting after her new-born daughter. No, she gets angry because she doesn't like the nickname he gave her; another example of her deadly superficiality. Most of the time, she just gives Renesmee to Jacob to look after. When does she ever do anything to actually take care of Renesmee herself? All she does is come in occasionally to admire the child, then go right back to ignoring her.

So, I hope I've made my point. There are many things wrong with Bella Swan. I hope you enjoyed my article :)

Wonderful article! When I read the part about Jacob's POV in Breaking Dawn I was like, "Oh my God!! THAT IS SO TRUE." Every mental, rabid Twilight fan should read this article. In fact, EVERYONE should. Especially librarians and teachers promoting young people to read Twilight. Sheesh. But, a really great article. Well done. *applaudes*

Haha this made me laugh probably only because you started with the mental being of Bella (first thing I noticed anyway)and my mum doing mental health Only if I could get her to read New Moon ( the books would be ripped and burned if my dad found out so bad idea)

Even if I dont like Bella much I would still like to defend her a bit .
Okay Imagine you lost your whole family you would get over it like ...that.
Come on she has lost her family, whold future her bloody true love and you expect her to heal remember she isnt 'supposedly' like the other humans she only has never been on the same perspective.

LOL Jessica nots nice even in Twilight Bella finds out Jessica is using her and if you dont know let me quote from Midnight Sun
"This put a mean edge to Jessica’s thoughts, though she was outwardly cordial tothe newcomer."
The part of her loving Edward for his looks here is a part from Eclipse to prove that point wrong :
“I love him . Not because he’s beautiful or because he’srich !” I spat the word at Jacob. “I’d much
rather he weren’t either one. It would even out the gap between us just a little bit — because he’d still be
the most loving and unselfish and brilliant anddecent person I’ve ever met. Of course I love him. How
hard is that to understand?”

For her hobbies: we see her listening to music,writing emails, looking after the house, cooking,looking after her child, family and spending time with her husband.

Renesmee_XD: Haha, I had so much fun psychoanalyzing Bella. I do that with characters every so often (I did it with Voldemort once... you have no idea how much fun THAT was! XD)

I just don't feel like she cared that much when she lost her family. In fact, she seemed very happy and never spared them a second thought (except when her father came to visit her, where she was upset. I understand that, but still... it doesn't do well for debate on how Bella loves her family). She ignores her mother most of the time, only contacting her when she has to. She ignores her father because he is "annoying" and "immature" in her eyes.

Yeah, but Jessica really was the first one to talk to Bella, even before she became the most popular girl in school by lunchtime. So I guess maybe they both use each other. Bella uses Jessica just as much as Jessica uses Bella, and I still think that Jessica could have easily left Bella to face whatever danger she may have put them in, but she stayed with Bella. That really is a sign of loyalty. Jessica seems jealous, but she has proven loyal. Too bad... SMeyer could have actually had one decent message if she hadn't claimed Jessica to be a bitch for not wanting to be friends with Bella because Bella used her and put her in danger without a care. A potential good message was changed into yet another bad one. (And I think Edward knew Jessica's ill-feelings toward Bella, but Bella wasn't aware, I don't believe.)

I remember that from Eclipse. However, I don't agree with it. I hear girls in my school all the time claiming they are "in love" with their boyfriends whom they have been going out with for 4 days, and talking about how they don't "love" them for those same shallow reasons, but because of THEM. Then they break up a week or two later (the lucky ones get a few months in. Only a couple of serious relationships have ensued in my school). She does fall for him because she looks across the cafeteria, sees he is the hottest guy in school and decides he is the only one good enough for her. That really is how it started. They never sit and talk with each other (unless it's, "I love you more!" "No, I love you more" "You're so beautiful" "You're more beautiful!" That doesn't count. I mean really talking to each other, joking with each other, sharing moments, doing things together, etc.) They really don't know each other that well, if you think about it. (Although neither has much personality, so I guess there's not much you could do about that).

The thing is... we never see her doing any of these. We don't see her listening to music once; we are just told she does so. Not once in the two years of the storyline does she actually listen to music. Same with writing emails, except for when she HAS to because otherwise her mom will freak out on her and embarrass her and be all annoying like the immature idiot she is (at least in Bella's eyes). Looking after her house and cooking... I wouldn't call those hobbies, at least, not in Bella's case. She does it in a "perfect wife from the 40s" way... anti-feminist. Cooking and cleaning for the man of the house, and that being her only purpose, skipping college and having no outside hobbies... anti-feminist. Cooking may be considered a hobby to some people, but Bella doesn't cook for fun. She cooks to make her dad happy so that he won't bug her (or burn the house down). She doesn't really look after Renesmee all that much. She leaves her to Jacob, then walks in occasionally to admire the baby's beauty, then goes back to ignoring it. Also... she doesn't care that her "best friend" suddenly turns pedophile and lusts after her newborn baby, yet she gets furious because... she doesn't like the nickname. What? That's really shallow, and it shows that Bella is just superficial; she doesn't care about the baby herself, she just likes the IDEA of having a perfect baby. Spending time with her husband is true, I guess. However, that's all she does. She doesn't talk to her friends, she doesn't have any clubs or things to do... she just sits at home with her boyfriend all day. I wouldn't really call that a hobby either, I'm afraid. But Edward has no life either (unless you count stalking as a hobby), so maybe they are just spending their boring lives together, so they know that they are not alone in their lifelessness (no pun intended).

of course she cares about her baby. She loves renesmee so much.

I disagree about yer opinion on her notion towards Jessica. Jessica sucks. If ya don't believe me, might as well read the midnight sun CHAPTER 1: FIRST SIGHT of Edward's perspective and you'll see how Jessica think of Bella.

@krolitika_009: I think that's SMeyer after-thought. She realized that people had said that Jessica was actually nice, so tried to change their perspective through revealing what's really in her mind.

Now, imagine this. You're a new kid in school. Then, a girl approach you and sat with you through two classes. You probably would strive a conversation with her, or at least remember her name. But this wasn't the case with Bella. I quote;

"I couldn't remember her name, so I smiled and nodded as she prattled about teachers and classes. I didn't try to keep up."

She didn't try to keep up. She couldn't remember her name. She was not being nice! There Jessica was, a girl who was trying to have a conversation, and she couldn't care less.

Lol, this is all so true. And though I like Twilight, I never really liked Bella. In fact, I always hated her.

krolitika_009: She doesn't show any sign of caring for Renesmee. She ignores the baby most of the time anyway, and then leaves it in the hands of the pedophile who lusts for it. She comes in every now and then to admire its beauty, but other than that, nothing.

About Jessica, she did welcome Bella warmly. She was the very first one to talk to her, introduce her to people, and give her a place to sit at lunchtime. Bella became the instantly-most-popular-girl-in-school-wwit­hou­t-d­oin­g-a­nyt­hin­g after that. Jessica truly did display loyalty and even bravery when she stayed with Bella. When Bella selfishly put the both of them in danger, and Jessica knew that Bella was using her by then, she could have run, but she didn't. She stood by her friend. Bella had no right to treat Jessica the way she did. (And she doesn't treat any of the other "friends" right either, from Mike to Angela to Jacob).

Athiya made an excellent point on that matter. :)

Haha, thanks KathyHalliwell. Even when I did like Twilight, I was never able to stand Bella. Ugh, she's just so annoying in every way! Haha, but thanks :)

I agree with everything you've said here, except the part of Jacob being a pedophile. He is not sexually attracted to Nessie. He only wants the best for her. Basically like a big brother.

@LifesGoodx3
But he will be when Renesmee is old enough, wich is in, I don`t know,...7 years!?
She will see him as brother and suddenly he`ll want to make out with her. This is disgustingly like pedophilia.

First of all I remember to main point of imprintng is to reproduce a child with the shapeshifter genes...how is that not sexual? As we see that Jacob wants to be like a brother or uncle or something to her before having sex with her is awfully like child grooming. As well as the age difference which I can swear is pedophilia

Thank you for pointing this out!
It;s true, Bella is nothing but a dull, moody, winy baby who takes avantage of others and only has room for a guy whos been dead for over 100 years. I always thought that Jessica was annoying, but now that you mentioned it she was acutally trying to make Bella feel more comfortable at school and letting her be her friend, but what does Bella do? treat her and the others like CRAP!! I would have been grateful to have a friend like Jessica and join her circle of friends. That just goes to show how ungrateful Bella is with her life.

angry
first of all : IF YOU EVEN READ THE SERIES ! te you would know that bella loves renesme sooooooooo much she was willing to die for her before she even knew her she and veryone else was as sure as night and day she was going to die . and bella knew this and she still did it for her . if she didnt care about renesme why didnt she just hand her over to the volturi / huh? no she was ready to fight for reneesm , she was ready to die for renesme!

second of all : the only person arogant here , IS YOU ! bella is distracted by all the supernatural around her knowing their could be a vampire anywhere around her , that could recoignize the cullns scent on he or the wolves scent on her and attack a any known moment , srry she doesnt have time to hang out with her bratty human freinds every waking moment ( some are bratty , what can i say?) jessica was just a gossip whore , she was just usingbella to keeep he away from mike ! who she had no interes in ! jessica hated bella a little more every time she didnt like something jessica did , she used hr beacau of her popularity amongst the boys , edward cullen , and mike . bella couldnt keepup with jessica beacause jessica is obnoctius and impulsive . jessica only took her own feelings into account and didnt even let her talk 1 with all the information jessica was spewing who could remeber her name .

bella knew what jessica thought of her bythe atmophre arondjesic every time she dd something to mke her her own person.



she didnt pay attention to jessica bacause if jessica thought she wasnt worrth it , then screw her !




third of all : bella did NOT under ANY FUCKNG CODITIONS! have FUCKN SCHIZOPHENIA! WHERE THE HELL DID YOU PICK THAT SHI UP FROM!
she ws deprssed because the family she thought cared about her left without s much as a goodbye ! that her first and only love that promised to never leave her did . not to mention she probally thought he knew about victoria and lefther there just so victria could toture her ! the only family that took care of her a=insteadof the other way around left! thats like being a five year old dreaming of winning the 2 millon dollar lottery ( and there s a chance you can.) only to have your mom of freind tell you " evenif you do win someones either gona kill you for it or their gonna steal it !" so ofcourse the depression lasted more that ' a few day s!"or "one month" she fckin won the lottery ( family and love wise) not to metin now that bella knew there was a voturi (no mattrhow small she jknew of them ) she knew thee was a HUGE fucking cance that they could find out and kill her along with evry one else in forks ad the rest of her family and the woves and the cullens (and the denali's but she didnt know that yet.)se heard edwards voice beacause she couldnt forget him , she needed closure , she felt that this was the road to that . se felt that if sh heard hs voice she wold be closer to him.



sh heard hi voice beacause tose emotions that blla thought she locked up inside of her subcnsious ,were not locked up , they were free so the memories of edwarrds voice mixed with the natural messed up dange signals that she inheirets as a human.


forth of all: bella tried her best to love everyone around her , super natural or not , she was and all together beautiful , submissive person. but bhind that submission she was angered and vengful and a takecharge kind of gurl , this led her todisobey alot of the people she loved . only beacase she was still her own person and beingher own person means she refuses to submitt completly to domslike edward andjacob.



a for nything ou aid abou he mental health.COME ON! SES A FRICIN 18 YEAR OLD TRAPPED INBETWEEN SUPER NATURALS AND STILL GOING TO SCHOOL TAKING CARE OF HER PARENT S (LIKE ALWAYS)AND TRYING TO EXPRIENCES ALL THAT SHE CAN OF LIFE BEFOR SHE GIVES IT UP , BELLA SWAN WASJUST A LOVELY PERSON THAT FORGAVE AND LOVED TO EASIL

@ TeamBELLAdumy girl, I couldn't understand half your damn post. Some of those words do not even exist in the English language.

But to argue your points... Bella mainly wants the baby because it's Edward's. A lot of 'it was OUR baby' mentality going on there. Maybe she had a thought about the baby as an individual but Smeyer doesn't emphasize that much.

Second, you say that she's distracted by the supernatural happenings, that's why she can't hang with her friends? Weird, she still has time for Edward. And no mention of any of her friends from Phoenix, Arizona. Guess she doesn't have a problem ditching friends and family for Edward as it seems she's done it to whoever was in her past (that we never find out about cos I guess they weren't important enough)

Third, the poster of the article was pointing out conditions that have symptoms that Bella displayed. It's never said in the book but the way Bella acts or reacts to situations is exactly how people with those conditions react. It's just a fact. And no matter what you say, four months of shutting everyone out is NOT HEALTHY. GET SOME HELP. It's mainly Edward she misses, and Alice who just happens to be the one most likely to give her information about Edward. Convenient. None of this 'family left her' crap, it's all about Mr. Liquid-Topaz eyes and how he's left her. If your ENTIRE happiness depends on a man's love for you, again, I say GET SOME HELP. If someone is your everything, you're left with NOTHING when they're gone. Seriously. Not healthy at all.

Fourth, oh she most certainly tried her best to love everyone. When Edward was one, Jacob became a convenient toy to pass time until Edward came back. Even you can't deny she cut back heavily on the time she spent with Jacob ode Edward was back. All about convenience. Hardly any love is shown to her mum. Her mum is more the annoying child that she humors when she needs to. No love for her friends (except maybe Angela), hmmm actually, who and how does she love? Why does she love Edward? So far, it's been all about his looks. Imagine if he looked ugly, she wouldn't have taken a secod glance at him. Shallow, superficial and wrong. That's lust, not love. Also, being submissive isn't a good thing! But thats what she is! Just a doormat to Edward and what he wants (if he says she can't visit Jacob, then okay)

Last, no insult to Stephenie Meyer, just to the way she wrote Bella. A very weak character who is a bad example to young girls who are easily influenced. Also, Twilight doesn't have much depth. What you read is what you get. Unless the underlying message is to commit suicide cos you think your loved one died. Or to use your best friend and play with his feelings until your ex comes back. Just lame messages from a poorly written novel.

Anyway, just my two cents. All written from a phone so if there's any mistakes, blame autocorrect. Ta.

@TeamBELLAdummy

First off, there's this wonderful thing called correct English. Use it! Trust me, I know more abbreviations/acronyms than you (13 year old girl with unlimited texting). So don't use the excuse that I just 'don't know enough to understand'. That' won't work.

Second off, did you leave your caps lock key on? Seriously, yelling through a comuter won't help. At all. You told us, and I just copy and pasted, 'YU ARE THE IMMATURE ONES !' Coming from the person who typed yu and computer yelled and such.

Now, to get to your actual post (Mostly a Differently Worded Repeat from Above, which was really good):

Point 1: She only wanted Edwards baby. Not the actual baby. And, from what I remember, and correct me if I'm wrong, didn't all the buildup with the Volturi and then they, are you ready for this?, talked about their feelings.

... ... ... Fail.

I swear, that should be on EpicFail.com or something!

Point 2: She doesn't have time for friends, yet she has time for Edward and Jacob and to get pregnant. Honestly, a day out at the spa, a movie, lunch, something! Anything! She ditches everyone and everything for EDWARD not supernatural events! Oh... sparkling vampire. Vampires don't sparkle. I get it now! Cool! If that's what you meant, than I agree.

Point 3: She is supposed to be a BELIEVABLE CHARACTER! So she's really promoting these psychological problems. Meyer is saying to the young girls of America: He dumped you? Try to commit suicide. Oh, well done! Really, that's perfect for the already screwed up teenagers of America! Honestly, she should see a psychiatrist. Another thing Meyer is promoting wrongly: You don't need a psychiatrist.

Point 4: Yeah, loving! That's so the same as using, ignoring, and hating!
