“It changed me so drastically. This day was so bad that I couldn’t muster up enough energy to take photos in this tourist attraction like my friends were doing. Instead, I sat far from where everyone posed. The Vessel, stood behind me and yet I kept my eyes closed,” she said.
She expressed her gratitude to her friend Mark for taking this photo which she said captured her at her “saddest.”
She added, “I’m actually happy that he took a photo of me at my saddest. I appreciate that at the worst of times, all I did was close my eyes and try to understand. That I didn’t turn into a person I wouldn’t want to face today.”
Her post ended with a message of encouragement to her 4.6 million followers who may be experiencing what she went through today. “I’m sure you all have been through tough times. It took me a while to believe that it will get better. And if you’re going through something now, have faith,” she said.
Although she didn’t say what exactly had troubled her on that day, she promised this to her followers: “One day, I will tell the story of what happened on June 6, 2019.”
Many of her friends and fans took to the comments section to give comforting messages to the Sino ang May Sala? actress.
