Hey look it might have not been the smartest move but seriously if you thought someone had your mom hostage. Would would take the time to say okay well lets think about this. And spend hours doing it. Heck i wouldn't if someone had someone i loved i would just go i would rather die then have my loved ones die.
And the Jacob thing there are times when humans just don't think clearly. heck i was beliving jacob for a second. until the kiss me crap. But honestyly when you are in a situation like that you are just going to react and may not hink things through it isn't a bad thing just means your normal.
And anyway you say all the things that happend are stupid and could be avoided. but it that happened there would be no story.
Of course there would be a story, these events only make up a small portion of the books. And anyways I was not implying that they were all stupid and could have been avoided I was stating that many of these events occurred because Bella is gullible and let's her emotions control her. That's how I saw it, but you didn't and that's fine.

i think bella always DOES try to do the right thing. and i think if someone is in danger, bella won't give herself a second thought in helping them. i think that makes her, in general, a selfless person, and i think that gives her the potential to be greatly selfless.
but she can be rather selfish and self centered when it comes to interactions and relationships with others.
I agree, Bella can be selfless, particularly in life/death situations. However, I just don't think how she goes through these situations makes her a strong person.
