Who: Whether you’re on a tight budget or ready to splurge, social media can act as a great travel guide, giving you ideas for your next trip — and letting you visualise how it might play out. A great person you need to follow to spark your wanderlust in 2017 is Taiwanese-American Discovery Travel and Living‘s long-running series Fun Taiwan host and model Janet Hsieh.
Let’s Get Real: Janet uploaded a nine minute-long video ago of herself in tears, opening up to her viewers about her long battle with depression. She shared her experiences from her past, letting people know how she used to suffer from clinical binge-eating disorder that went on for three years when she first debuted 14 years ago, but she has since overcome it. However, Janet stated in the video that she would still have a relapse of sudden sadness sometimes, encouraging people who suffer the same way as her to not be afraid, because sadness is inevitable. “I always looked like a happy person, full of energy – I actually am, but I have battled with depression before.”
