Ylona Garcia reminds her followers about one of social media's negative effects.
On her Twitter account yesterday, June 25, the 16-year-old singer related how reading negative comments led to her hospitalization.
She said, “As much I'd like to keep things private, I want everyone to be aware of their mental health.
“Woke up this morning scrolling through social media to see such distasteful and unnecessary words being shared.
“I have to be honest, it really stressed me out and I spent hours trying to find ways to make sure everyone would be happy and okay, to the fact where I forgot about myself.
“To the point where I ended up in the hospital.”
Then, she mentioned, “I'm sharing this with you now to create awareness. #PleaseSpreadLove.”
In connection to this, Ylona also said, “Wishing and praying we could all be spreading love more than hate on social media, because people get bashed/disrespected on social media can only stay strong for so long and can be so close to breaking down.”
Meanwhile, Ylona's fans were quick to console and send her get-well-soon messages through replies to her Twitter post.
