Taylor Swift has the Tumblr thing down. She's proved she has an understanding of Tumblr memes (especially ones involving herself) and a knowledge of the time-suck the platform can become. However, part of her Tumblr charm is also helping users who post about their problems, and Swift has given one fellow Tumblr user some comforting advice. Fifteen-year-old Tumblr user Stormie wears her Swift love on her sleeve (or in this case, her Tumblr bio) and on August 6, she published a post about her feelings of loneliness and anxiety about the upcoming school year, writing, "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." Always there for her fans, Swift herself commented on the post. She wrote about realizing your own value, saying, "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."
Stormie was grateful Swift reached out, writing, " 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."
