Filipino-Australian singer and actress Ylona Garcia was taken to the hospital recently due to stress from reading bashers’ comments on social media. It was last June 25 when Garcia took to her Twitter and shared a picture of her in a wheelchair and hooked to what seemed like an IV-administered dextrose. She also shared a note to her fans to spread love and not hate, and to be aware of mental health.

Despite this ordeal, however, Garcia chose to handle the situation more maturely and on a positive note. She took to her Twitter yesterday, June 28, saying she learned things the hard way, specifically with regards to respect.


“I learned the hard way, that I cannot always count on others to respect my feelings,” wrote Garcia on her Twitter account. “Even if I respect theirs. Being a good person doesn’t guarantee that others will be good people too. You only have control over yourself and how you choose to be as a person.”

Her tweet resonated with many of her fans, as it garnered thousands of favorites and re-tweets, and seemingly echoed what the young personality might have been feeling.

In another tweet, she wrote, “As for others, you can only choose to accept them or walk away. Sometimes walking away is not only the wisest thing to do but also the kindest thing you can do for yourself.”

Garcia ended her sentiments by saying she wished for the well-being of “others.”

Although Garcia’s tweets didn’t address anybody in particular, it was noted that some netizens’ comments in Garcia’s Instagram post last June 24 singled out Garcia’s Potato Squad co-stars Darren Espanto, Kyle Echarri and AC Bonifacio.

In the past few days, Echarri and Espanto were found making cryptic tweets about someone who has “changed for the worse,” although the two did not name Garcia.  /ra
