#i love taylor swift
When 1989 came out was the first time someone called me a Swiftie 🥰
Miss Americana opened the Sundance Film Festival on January 23
1989 days since 1989!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I Love Taylor Therapy!! I’m not going to lie I started my day really down but like always I turned to @taylorswift and it completely turned my day around! I spent probably around 6 hours going down a YouTube rabbit hole of Taylor videos music, interviews and just random videos of her and it was able to get my mind off all the scary and negative things going on in my life. Once again she was there for me without even knowing it. I know I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again she has really gotten me through all the darkest times of my life and I can never thank her enough! Keep your head up fellow Swifty’s I know things will get better soon cause they have to 💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜💜 xoxo This Swifty Kat @taylorswift @taylornation
RED. LIP. CLASSIC.
Pretty self explanatory. 😍
Hi @taylorswift ❤️
First of all, I would like to apologize for writing you this letter. But as of now, I really don’t know what to do.
Please allow me to tell your my story.
I am your fan from Philippines. I listened to all your songs but I must admit that I never had the chance to buy any of your albums or attend any of your concerts here in Philippines, not because I don’t want to but because I couldn’t afford it. But I really wanted to, I swear. I tried asking to attend the The Red Tour as a gift for my 18th birthday from my grandma working in New York, but tickets were sold out as soon as it was released. Tried hoarding cornetto ice cream hoping I would win, but no luck.
Now that I have work, I tried my best to save up for your albums and upcoming tours. I’m not from a rich family. My father works in a cruise ship abroad and our mom stays with us. I also have a brother who’s still studying. We have enough to get by. But of course being the eldest, I needed to support my family.
Last December of 2017, my grandma from my mom’s side was diagnosed with a lung cancer. I just feel it was unfair that it happened to her, given that she’s really a nice person. Just months after, around February of 2018, my grandma from father’s side, the one living in New York, was also diagnosed with cervical cancer. It was a lot to take innfor the family. We’re really trying everything to save them. To be honest, it exhausted energy and savings of the family. We did everything to give them the emotional and financial support they need.
When those happened, all I can ask is “why is this happening to us?”
Mid of 2018, I have a friend who needed financial help. She was the breadwinner of the family and I knew that time she needed urgent help. So I helped her. It continued until 2019. To be honest, it exhausted all my savings given that I was income was not that big. But I knew it was worth it to help her coz she really needed it. Her family needed it.
But after that, given the current situation of my family, unexpected expenses happened and then next thing I know, bills already piled up.
I can’t ask for anyone’s help, so I resorted to online lending platforms, it was too late that when I found out that these were illegal online lending apps. They would lend you around Php 2500 then you have to pay for Php 5000 in just 7 days. It was twice the money they lent you and they would harass and shame you if you don’t pay. Since it was an app installed in your phone they illegally access your contacts and text blasts them asking your contacts to pay for the money you owed them.
It was really embarassing and I was having breakdowns due to the torture. It piled up. It’s a lot now and all I wanna do is pay everything but I couldn’t. And I can’t do anything. Whenever I have income from work, I would pay them back and loan again just so I have money to support my family.
Truth is, I couldn’t even tell my family coz I don’t wanna burden them more.
November 2019 came, my father’s only sister was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer.
I just… Lost it. Why is these things happening to us? We’re not yet done with one thing and there comes another problem. It’s just tiring. I admit, I tried quitting and thought of ways to die. But I just couldn’t do it to my family.
I tried loaning from banks but they won’t approve me given the record of all the late payments I made due to having lots of bills in my plate every month.
Due to the financial problem I was forced to let go of my apartment in the city and live in our house. That’s 4 hours away from my work. But that’s ok. If that’s part of the sacrifice I had to make.
Now that this covid-19 happened. And there’s a lockdown in where we live. My father will be out of work since cruise ships cancelled their operations.
This means no income for the family. I don’t know how to help them since all my monthly salaries are for paying online loans.
And they still need to eat. We still need to support meds and checkups for my grandma.
I honestly don’t know what to do anymore.
I know I’m just a fan, and I haven’t done anything for you. And here I am asking for your help 😔
Please. I’m willing to accept any condition, if it would be a loan, I would be happy to pay it back. Just please help me pay off my debts now just so I could start over again. Just so I would have the chance to help my family again. Please.. I promise your help will be used in good and will be used to help my family again.
Please. I know this is too much to ask but please help my family. I’m begging you 😭
I’m praying for you always Taylor. I’m sorry again. And I hope this would reach you
A fan from Philippines
I can’t even sleep anymore, anxiety keeps me awake all night.
I need a hug, I need a friend. I need someone to tell me that everything is gonna be okay.
That being sent home from work with no pay (for the last couple of months) is okay. That if I can’t afford rent and loose my apartment is okay and not having food is okay too. Or that not being able to send money and my dad medicine back home will be okay too, he will be okay.
@taylorswift you’ll always been my rock, throu everything life throws at me. I know this is a long shot, but can you please tell me is gonna be okay? If someone I believe is you
To say my anxiety has been high lately would be an understatement (I’m high risk due to multiple health issues & a healthcare worker; hubs has had to totally close his busines, etc.). Partner that with my depression and chronic pain, and this quarantine has been extra difficult. I’m so thankful for Taylor’s music during these times as her songs have been my safe haven during this time of confusion & uncertainty. 💖

Reblog this with your favorite Taylor Swift candid and what you love about it. I’m really interested to know what everyone’s choices will be.
@taylorswift thank you for the happiest day of my life i still get shivers thinking about this incredible day🥺🥺🥺💗
So i am sitting in the driveway listening to fearless and looking up into the night sky at the beautiful moon and am thinking of my beloved grandad who passed away this week and in my thoughts I told him how tough everything has been this week and how much I miss him and in just that second in the corner of my eye I see the traffic light turn green 💚🥺 and I know it’s nothing but it feels like something because shit is tough and I am desperate rn !
So yeah Miss @taylorswift … I guess this is me telling you that you made me believe in the power of Traffic lights 🚦
Words are so much easier when you don’t have to say them.
But stories are so much better when they’re told.
Say what you want.
Tell someone’s story.
