                    (Not to mention he's a manipulative pedophile creep! And he accused Shane of being a "pedo" and fatshamed him back in the days when they "knew" eachother...💀)
                    YEAH, WELL HIS CASE IS BEING INVESTIGATED BY CHRIS HANSEN ! (That guy from the show "catching a predator")

                          Such a sweetheart, but inside, she is very strong, and has so much to give this world to make it a better place, just leading by example, showing people that there is another way to exist without meanness, without trolling and without all the hatred. People naturally look up to her anyway because she is so original and fascinating, some people just have that quality and she has it, she is a star. Shane, I think you should go to Burning Man and of course make a long documentary video of it, wearing that spirit hat thing as the basis of your outfit. Let Eugenia dress you and then hit the Playa, in fact maybe you two should go together! She has the peaceful giving vibe anyway! Do it!

                                  Her parents really should've done more, not sure if they did help her or see the problem but I'm so happy for her. I hope she keeps it up. Cause man that's so hard to see and also so so bad for your body. She needs to have more support and I hope she continues the rehab.

                                        18:08 killed me😂 ok but like she is so nice and she doesn’t deserve the comments from people that can’t get things through there minds so they just assume stuff. How can someone have the gut to say to someone else “kill yourself” like idk how someone would think that’s ok

                                                She is still smiling through every question. It’s okay though, it was really brave of her to do this interview, and Shane did a really good job. It’s nice to see he contacted a professional and got advice.

                                                                    I’ve been in recovery for my ED since 2013 and was kind of scared to watch this because I thought it might be triggering. (Been struggling a bit this year with it again.) But I’m glad I watched it. Recovery isn’t as easy as one hospitalization, but it’s a huge leap into banishing that monster. Admitting the problem is the hardest part, and so is breaking the habits of denial. I hope her recovery is beautiful and transformative in the most beneficial way. I hope she gets stronger in her self worth and fighting against that voice that feeds you nothing but terrible thoughts about yourself. I hope she learns that you’re not in the way and you don’t have to apologize for everything simply because you exist. You exist, you matter, you are allowed to be free and comfortable. God I saw soooo much of myself in her and even though 6 years sounds like a long time, it’s taken everyday for me to break old habits and ways of thinking to stand strong against that addiction. It turns you into an emotional cripple but you can get back on your feet. One day, one minute at a time. There is hope. Cheers to personal growth and acceptance.

I hope people struggling with this can watch this video to start to understand the root patterns going on here:

                                                                        It's good to see Eugenia beginning her healing journey.

Even if she did i hope she's comfortable and can function, not saying its too late "and god i hope not" since everyone should have a 2nd shot in life. Knowing how stupid you we're in the past can really take a clean hit in ur mental and most get discouraged and think they cant go back then depression just hits and its like quick sand dragging you down then vicious cycle going back to being self destructive. Its nice seeing her comment section so cheerful and supportive, i followed her story when she went viral a few months ago people saying she's gonna die any moment and dang the comment section was nasty.

                                                                          Never really cared of Shane since he approached me as a clickbait sensationalism kind of guy just in it for the clicks. Shane tried and hopefully saved a life with reaching out Eugenia, he should be proud of it. It might be for clicks but i dont really care, he deseves the love since he earned it.

                                                                        I’m halfway through the video, reading some comments...

                                                                        First of all, I appreciate the efforts you’re making to bring up that sensitive subject. I think it’s pretty important to talk about eating disorders and mental illnesses to bring awareness. Eugenia is such a sweetheart, thanks to her as well for participating in your video and all the other people involved. It’s so difficult to open up about personal demons. Eugenia, if you’re ever reading this, lemme tell you I think you’re very brave and hope your recovery process is going fine.

                                                                        Secondly, it just stroke me how nice Eugenia is, TOO nice. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a huge quality and such people are so precious. However it can become a problem when they’re starting to get stepped on by others or life in general. It broke my heart when that girl told her that crazy comment (you would look prettier if you weren’t dying) and Eugenia acted so nicely to her even though she was probably hurt. It’s not okay to be treated like this. You deserve better. You have the right to assert yourself whenever people cross boundaries like these.

                                                                        Ok so my nerdy side is going to show up now. I’m really into typology (personality type theories), especially the enneagram, which is a system with 9 personality archetypes centered around core fears. Eugenia seems to be a type 9. In brief, people with this type are afraid of « conflict » (in the large sense) and always try to reduce everything that could be upsetting to them. For example it could be avoiding to anger other people because they don’t like « literal conflicts ». But it could also be minimizing the problems they encounter in their lives until they become really salient. The main challenge for people with this type is to deal with inertia. There is a deep scar inside that makes them think they don’t really matter as much as other people around them, causing that inertia (reminder: it’s an archetype so it might not apply to people at 100% of course). I really saw Eugenia in that type because she used to be in denial of having an eating disorder for a long time (inertia to self) and with the examples she gave of not asserting herself at that concert even though her neighbors were noisy and annoying here.

                                                                        What I want to say with that fucking essay is: if you know someone who is too nice and getting owned by others, please remind them that they have the right to have their boundaries respected and to tell when people are going too far. It will be better for themselves!

                                                                        If any courageous soul reads this, ily
