ckEditor deletes content on page refresh

I implemented this tutorial to change my wysiwyg editor from Froala to ckEditor. Everything works, but whatever content I input into the ckEditor gets deleted after refreshing the page. The content is still shown on my website, but the editor remains blank. This never happened on Froala, which would store my data even on page refreshes.

Looking around, another Strapi user had the same problem but never got the solution to it. Wondering if anyone knows why ckEditor behaves this way and what I can do to fix it?

I tried updating my strapi to the latest version 3.6.3 but the problem still persists.

Other strapi tutorials like replacing froala with Quill has the same problem. I gave up and just used the ckEditor plugin and fixed the issue.
