It’s easy to imagine how these could wear a person down, but Wonyoung previously went viral for sharing that fans give her strength during hard times.
it's a bit unusual for wonyoung to go on pm late at night and she talked about gaining strength from us 🙁 she said if someone is giving her a hard time, she can just say "i have dives, you're jealous right?" and that "everything will be okay since i have you" pic.twitter.com/PffraAcOkD

저는 스스로를 사랑하는 편입니다
질책은… 원치 않는 곳에서도 사람들에게 받을 수 있기 때문에 스스로에게는 사랑만 주는 게 어떨까 pic.twitter.com/O82Wd0ih0f

I tend to love myself. Criticism…People can give it to you even when you don’t want it, so how about you give yourself nothing but love.
Fans have praised her mature mindset and wished they treated criticism the same way.
she's so classy… actually what's more irritating than seeing the person u hate smiling and continue living their life happily.. like just doing this she called them miserable without even saying anything https://t.co/Dqu5IK8neF
