Never underestimate the power of a few thoughtful words.
Taylor Swift may be traveling across the country as part of her 1989 tour. But that would never stop the “Shake It Off” singer from reading a few messages from fans on social media.
Late last week, the music superstar came across a Swiftie who shared her fears about starting a new school year.
“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,” a fan named Stormie wrote on her Tumblr account.
Lo and behold, Swift saw the note and had to respond in her own thoughtful way.

“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,” Swift shared. “It’s scary but it’s also the wildest, most thrilling part of life.”
She continued, “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.”
As one can expect, the fan was absolutely shocked to get a reply from her favorite singer. In fact, she first read the message bright and early at 3:30 a.m.
“I’m so thankful for this. I really needed to hear it tonight and im really grateful to have her in my life,” Stormie shared. “This really helped me and I hope it helps everyone else.”
