Girl Who Is Afraid to Start School Feels Better Knowing Taylor Swift Is There for Her

taylor swiftWhether you're a Taylor Swift fan or not, you've got to give the pop star credit for one thing: She's consistently awesome to her fans -- especially Swift supporters who are having a particularly hard time in life. Just take Swift's recent response to a fan's emotional post on Tumblr.


Recently, Tumblr user Stormie (who goes by the handle protectingswift) took to the blog to vent about her anxiety and frustrations:

"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."

Oh, Taylor Swift is there, all right -- and she proved it by writing back! Can you even imagine being a down-in-the-dumps kid whose only consolation in life are the songs of your favorite pop star ... and then the pop star writes you a personal message?? A pretty profound personal message, no less:

I hate that you're feeling that way and it's so hard not to dwell on our fears and doubts, because we want spoilers for how it's going to turn out. But in reality, we just have to go through life not knowing what's next.

Just when you think it's going to get worse, it could get better instead. It WILL. You've always been there with kind, thoughtful words for me when I'm down and I just need you to know how important you are.

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.

Wow, Taylor Swift. That's the sort of experience that could be literally life-changing for a kid. Naturally, Stormie was completely blown away, and shared everything Taylor Swift said with her followers.

Which of course only served to inspire more people in turn, of course. So with that one good deed, Taylor Swift actually committed thousands of them -- the karmic power of social media! Who knew?

Anyway, this is just one of several sweepingly benevolent gestures made by Swift to loyal fans (she sent $1,989 to one fan struggling with student loans and showed up to another fan's bridal shower in April as a surprise). And while it's tempting to dismiss this kind of thing as a PR strategy, it seems she really does care about the people who helped to put her on top -- and that's likely exactly why they'll keep her there!

And chances are Stormie's feeling a lot better about the start of school now than she was before. Good luck, girl!
