The Instagram story is flooded with messages pointing towards setting some healthy boundaries. The finale saw Ethan confront his folks after tensions arose between them. Let us take a look at this in detail.
Welcome to Plathville: Olivia Plath Highlighting The Relevance Of Healthy Boundaries
After an explosive confrontation with Ethan’s parents, Olivia posted some uplifting and empowering messages on her Instagram stories. The core message was about standing up for oneself and about not excusing abusive behavior.
She shared a post from a support community for anxiety titled ‘8 sentences I wish I read sooner.’ Among the many quotes, there was one from Steven Bartlett saying The pain and the hard times will one day become awareness, strength, and blessings. Following that, there were some other quotes about not looking good while making someone look bad, saving explanations for worthy people, protecting boundaries, and concluding with a message that people have to stop excusing abusive behavior.
She pointed out that the main reason why people don’t speak up is that others give them unnecessary feedback and minimize their experiences. If they can’t talk about something, it’s pointless to expect them to let things go or process their pain.
Welcome to Plathville, Ethan Physically Stopped His Father With a Warning
Ethan wanted him and Olivia to say goodbye to his siblings in person one final time. However, for obvious reasons, Olivia didn’t want to see her in-laws. But Barry and Kim refused to let their children go to the car without them. Just when his dad began to walk towards Olivia, Ethan physically stopped him. His exact words were, “You are not going to walk over to my wife. Do you understand?”
Fans have been criticizing Olivia for being extremely harsh towards her in-laws. There is a chance that a message might be directed towards the trolls. Of course, she might have indirectly called out her in-laws with her messages on her Instagram story.
She made it clear that his parents have never reached out once after they opted for the non-contact route. The Plath parents also expressed their disappointment over the drastic situation. Barry felt hurt about being Ethan’s adversary. He also called the situation hurtful and bizarre. As for Kim, she was baffled and thought only a miracle could get the two sides back together.
