You must have been very disappointed and surprised but I felt emotional seeing that there were a lot of fans that cheered us on anyway. Looking at it closely, I know well how long you waited so my heart hurts even more I thought that we would have to properly repay the love weve received Now I am in the fans debt because I was unable to repay it at the end. Normally I dont have a lot of confidence and have a lot of fear, but thanks to the fans who looked up to me I was able to see that I was a person worthy of receiving love. I have been happy many times thanks to my fans and received healing from them.
