Not that she needs anything else on her plate, but it looks like Taylor Swift can add advice columnist to her resume. A young fan of hers named Hannah, who goes by @sherbetswift on Instagram, reached out to Taylor and asked for advice on how to handle having feelings for a close guy friend who is perfect for her in so many ways, whom she has liked for years, but who has a girlfriend and will likely never return her feelings.
Taylor actually posted a lengthy response to Hannah basically telling her that her feelings were valid, and that unrequited love and the feelings that accompany it are just as valid and just as real as love that comes from being in a relationship with someone. “It’s just as crushing and just as thrilling,” Taylor wrote.
She went on to tell Hannah that loving someone even though they will likely never love you back was a very selfless and beautiful thing. And she closed by saying, “I think someday you’ll find someone who loves you in that exact same way.”
Hannah was obviously thrilled to receive a response from her hero and told her, “You understand and that means so much. I feel like you’re the big sister I don’t have. Thank you, I really did need to hear that from you.”
