…danced to Shake It Off on Dancing With The Stars.
I tried so hard today to get Taylor Nation to notice me, and they didn’t. But it’s okay. Because I tried.
I just feel bad. Man, someone made fun of my obsession.
I don’t know what people don’t get.
You see, taylorswift…you are my true friend. I’ve never met you, but it’s just you. It’s always been you.
From the moment I was released from the mental hospital at 15, your music made my newly found lack of true friends somehow okay…. I don’t know how. It just helps me out a lot. I’m really thankful that you were there through your music. I really think it just helps a lot, what you do and say.
My loving of you didn’t stop there. It continued to grow. Red made my life so much better. I just started college, far away from home, and it helped me out. A lot. I think it was really great, just overall. As the year progressed, my life imploded. And it was bad. I cut a lot. I went into this huge state of depression, it was terrible.
I am so happy you are here. You are making my life so much better! “Shake It Off” is truly the anthem to my life. Knowing you are there with your words for me is so relieving. You’re the one telling me to deal with my life, and it’s going to be okay. Then I was raped, and it was bad again. So I decided to cut a lot of times. Again. Over and over, and I was hospitalized again. Honestly, I wish…if I met you, I wouldn’t have scars. I wish I could be perfect, like you. I really wish that could be it. But it’s not. And I’ve watched you change…as in music and clothes and everything, but you’ve been strong and wonderful, and I am so happy to see you so happy. I love you so much, Taylor. You make me so, so strong, and I can’t do anything but thank you for that.
Like your words helped me so much this year, and this single has made me so excited. From being sexually assaulted in February, to being hospitalized twice… your words have been there, and they’ve helped me so, so much. I really do hope to meet you some day. Really, I do. I just want to tell you everything. Then I was raped, and it was bad again. So I decided to cut a lot of times. Again. Over and over, and I was hospitalized again. Honestly, I wish…if I met you, I wouldn’t have scars. I wish I could be perfect, like you. I really wish that could be it. But it’s not. And I’ve watched you change…as in music and clothes and everything, but you’ve been strong and wonderful, and I am so happy to see you so happy. I love you so much, Taylor. You make me so, so strong, and I can’t do anything but thank you for that.
