i'm afraid she'll put too much pressure on herself to show "her good side" again

the poor has no bad side, being mentally ill is not a sin or crime, not a "bad side" it's just part of who we all are and that's all okay and i hope she can find time and make peace with herself, i hope she can feel loved and worthy

I hope she gets the time she need to recover and take care of herself

thank goodness
i hope that she will be able to rest and heal at her own pace with a solid support system around her

Baby Girl...no need to say sorry.

I am soooooooooo happy to know that she seems ok physically. I was seriously afraid there might be some permanent physical damage. This somehow calms me.

Same!! When I saw people talk about neurological damage I was really scared
radowan 28th-May-2019 11:16 am (UTC)
That was my first thought too, like I hate how she has to start with a sorry :(
pikapika217 28th-May-2019 09:14 am (UTC)
She shouldn't have to apologize for this 😔

Hopefully she can take the time she needs to reflect and/or even get some therapy if that's something that will help her.

judging by her statement about trying to have a stronger mindset it seems that she thinks of her mental state as a personal character flaw rather than a legit illness that needs therapy :(

I'm so sad that she thinks she needs to apologize. I really hope that she gets as much time off as she needs to recover and that she's surrounded by people who are supportive.

I have a lot of feelings about the people that have been so cruel to her, but the one that largely wins out is just fury. No one deserves to be treated this way, especially with what she's gone through, and I hate social media for the fact that people feel they can say whatever the hell they want without any sort of responsibility for what harm those words cause. She's been through hell, had to sacrifice the privacy of her medical records, and people are still doing crap like celebrating that she tried to end her own life.

My heart hurts for her, I wish people would leave her alone (though I know they won't).

The fact that she feels the need to apologise is just.... fucked up. :(((

Hope she has a good support system around her to help her properly heal.

I was thinking about her, if she was still unconscious and I was getting nervous, but I’m so glad she’s awake!!!!

I just want her to focus on herself, fuck everyone else. Her happiness matters the most

I’m glad she’s awake. I do hope her promotions are halted so that she can take time to recover instead of forcing a smile when she’s not ready. She has nothing to apologize for :( She’s been through so much.

having a stronger mindset

Fuck that shit! You have to be incredibly strong to live with depression. It has nothing to do with lack of moral fortitude. You have to be tough as hell to live with a brain that's trying to kill you every day.

I'm afraid this is all too endemic of how fundamentally misunderstood this disease still is in SK and elsewhere. As if already living with it every day isn't already difficult enough, then you've got this toxic perception that it's a weakness that warrants apology.

As the saying goes, it's chemistry, not character.

I wouldn't be alive today if I hadn't had a great therapist and gone on meds when I did. So many people like this poor girl haven't been as lucky, and societal ignorance is a big reason why. Not that I'm pissed off about it or anything.
setsuna16 28th-May-2019 01:43 pm (UTC)
I'm grateful she's still alive and hope that she gets the help she needs.
myungung 28th-May-2019 02:10 pm (UTC)
I hope she gets the time to recover, and that she’s better/stable now. I get that she’s apologetic for worrying people, but it sucks that she feels she has to answer to people, when she wasn’t in a good state in the first place
kcaomei 28th-May-2019 02:56 pm (UTC)
i'm so relieved that (as far as we know) she seems to be okay in terms of not having any permanent damage. it makes me sad that she feels the need to apologize at all, your mental health is not something you're always in control of. i hope more than anything that she gets all the help and support she needs to heal and recover long term. when she's well enough, she should file charges against anyone that was encouraging her in taking her life... these soulless monsters should be held accountable
goshipgurl 28th-May-2019 03:23 pm (UTC)
I hope she gets enough time to recover or leaves the entertainment industry completely. It's not a good place, she went through a lot and deserves better.
gathyou 28th-May-2019 04:10 pm (UTC)
She doesn't have to apologize :( and she IS strong to live with depression.
I'm so relieved she's awake. I hope she gets the time she needs to recover/decide which way she wants to go with her life.
ramenhime 28th-May-2019 05:24 pm (UTC)
theres no need to apologize hara. i wish her all the happiness in the world. take as much time as u need to recover, we all know shes a strong woman
rainstormraider 28th-May-2019 06:14 pm (UTC)
It sucks that she lives in a world where she has to apologize. I wish someday we are advanced enough to not have people who are clearly suffering apologize for it.
a_suitcase 28th-May-2019 09:41 pm (UTC)
I feel so awful for her, she really shouldn't need to apologise. This poor girl, I hope she's surrounded by people who love her.
lightframes 28th-May-2019 11:05 pm (UTC)
Instead of her apologizing, I'm sorry the world has been so cruel to her.

I hope she takes all the time she needs to rest and recover.
