Taylor Swift Proves She’s The Sweetest With Fan Message

10th Aug 2015

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift is hands down the sweetest mega-famous celebrity on the planet. Though we imagine she has very little free time on her hands, what with her taking over the world one pop hit at a time, she values her loyal fan base above all else. When she says she loves her fans and likes to get to know them on social media, she actually means it, and no, she doesn’t employ someone to work as her online personality, it’s really her. Most recently, a troubled fan left a comment on her Tumblr page where you can only imagine how many messages she receives on a daily basis. Said fan spoke of how lonely and fearful they feel (hello, puberty) and how great it is to have a role model like T-Swizzle there to reassure them that all will be well. Needless to say, Taylor picked up on her fan’s comment and set aside some time to respond with the most genuine of posts. This might be a little too emotional for a Monday morning but damn, will we ever have a bad word to say about Taylor?

“I’ve been feeling so alone lately and left out of everything and so terrified of school starting and being even more alone next week and knowing taylor is there is really comforting.”

Here’s what Taylor had to say:

“I hate that you’re feeling this way and it’s so hard not to dwell on our fears and doubts? but in reality, we just have to go through life not knowing what’s next. It’s scary but it’s also the wildest, most thrilling part of life.?Knowing your worth sometimes comes without any proof at all. You’re worth more than flaky friends and people who dismiss you or underestimate you. Sometimes it seems like that’s all you get, but it’s not all you’ll ever get. Believe that. Love you.”

Seriously, credit to her momma for raising such a kind, thoughtful young lady. Can you imagine how happy her fan was to receive this response?

“Heres everything that she said? It’s three thirty in the morning and I’m just in shock. I’m so thankful for this. I really needed to hear it tonight and im really grateful to have her in my life. this really helped me and i hope it helps everyone else.

taylorswift thank you for this, and for everything. thank you for being a best friend to me. it means everything to me to know that my words can help you even a little when you’re down. i love you forever.” [sic]
