12 Apr – Malaysian celebrities recently came together to express their support for actress Janna Nick, who went viral after having an emotional breakdown about being overworked.

On 10 April, the 25 year-old posted a video on Instagram in which she couldn't keep her tears away as she admitted that she was burnt out from all the work she has been doing.

"I want to be a simple person. I want to be alone, and no one can simply come in and approach me. I'm just tired. I want to stop working but I cannot. I still have to put food on the table for my family," she said.

Janna also expressed more thoughts in the caption, writing, "It's not that I hate my career, or my work life. I LIKE WORKING! I can't live without working. My schedule is packed until end of this year. My body is so tired, but my brain is not. Therefore my brain keeps pushing my body to keep working."

"Even on days that I want to rest, my brain will force me to think, think and think some more! Imagine sitting alone, doing nothing but there's 5/6 voices in your head that are giving you different ideas to work on!" she added.

Janna stated that she is just a normal human who wants to live a normal life.

"I don't like talking, I don't like meeting people. In the past, when I wasn't happy, I could find reasons for me not to be happy. Now I'm so happy but my brain won't allow me to rest. From this I know, that I am my own problem. But no worries, I'll fix myself," she added.

Following the post, a slew of celebrities took to the comments to express their love and support for her.

Yasmin Hani says Janna should find some pocket time to rest.

Umie Aida posted, "Allah does not burden a soul beyond that it can bear."

As for Fasha Sandha, the actress, who experienced such burnout in the past wrote, "Don't worry. You'll be okay. Take a break, off your phone for a few days and be with your family. No need to go on social media temporarily. You'll be okay, God willing. We will all pray for you."
