Moriah Plath from Welcome to Plathville has changed a lot since she was first introduced to viewers, with some even calling her a narcissist. She has been on a journey of self-discovery and unapologetically living life on her terms. Fans are happy to see her break free from the constraints of her fiercely conservative Christian family. In an attempt to be her most authentic self, some fans think that she is starting to show some narcissistic tendencies.
Moriah has always felt different from her siblings, often comparing herself to an outsider. From a young age, she had bigger and bolder dreams that went beyond her small hometown of Cairo, Georgia. Her family previously described her as being “wired differently” in relation to everyone else around her.
The young reality star has a strong sense of confidence, and she knows her worth. However, since Welcome to Plathville season 4 aired, her attitude and behavior have viewers seeing her a bit differently. Let’s take a look at a few narcissistic traits that Moriah is possibly exhibiting.
The Plath kids share a close bond that even distance can’t break. After Moriah moved out of her shared home with her brother, Micah Plath, she decided to make the move to Tampa, Florida, with her brother and sister-in-law, Ethan and Olivia Plath. Micah decided he wanted to explore the world on his own and get out of his comfort zone. However, Moriah felt she needed the security blanket of her family. Micah even had a conversation with her, saying, “You moved with your bubble, your comfort zone, your cushion.” Moriah has had a difficult time adjusting to the changes in life and depends on her relationship with her family to help her navigate it.
Max Kallschmidt was Moriah’s first boyfriend and serious romantic interest on Welcome To Plathville. She believed him when he promised her forever, and they had plans to move in together once she was settled in Tampa. Unfortunately, those plans fell through when Max admitted he wasn’t faithful. This revelation forced Moriah to break things off with him. While she was sorting through her emotions, she never once gave any details about what truly happened in an effort to keep Max from gaining negative attention. During this time, Max exploited her trust and uploaded a video with his side of the story led by a false narrative, placing the blame for their split on Moriah. Many Welcome To Plathville fans believed he only dated Moriah for clout all along.
Moriah has struggled with how she grew up and the woman she strives to be. Her childhood held her back from exploring her full potential and how she wants to live her life going forward. Moriah expresses herself through her appearance and having the freedom to wear less conservative clothing, apply bold makeup, and experiment with her hair color. The Welcome To Plathville star has spoken a lot about how she wouldn’t have been accepted by her parents previously for how she chooses to present herself to the world. Moriah did admit that someday she may find that her current personal choices are excessive and unnecessary.
As Moriah continues to grow up and make sense of the world around her, she may tend to exhibit these traits and more. Viewers of Welcome to Plathville have thought that her mother, Kim Plath, has shown narcissistic personality traits and characteristics as well. Since Moriah has grown up in that environment, she may be mirroring a lot of Kim’s behaviors without even realizing it.
