TRUE BEAUTY ARTIST’S POST
The other post had been a worrying message which has now been deleted. The post is about how she is unable to juggle her career and parenting as a single mother. The post roughly translated to:
“I have no rest days. I think most working moms are like that. I stay up all night to work but not being able to spend time with my kid makes me feel even guiltier, like a criminal. If I am not positive about it, I don’t think I will be able to hand it in there, so I try not to think bad thoughts. But every day, I have to be mindful of how others think, and extreme thoughts occur to me. There’s nothing I am doing well, and it seems like I am just a nuisance to people around me…I think if I were gone, everyone would be happy.”
This message broke the heart of many fans, and they spammed in the comment section cheering her, cherishing her works, and requesting her to take care of her health.
