I respect people’s opinions. But when I go to Twitter or Tumblr, and all I see are comments that are so mean and below-the-belt, I take this time to took what I said back.. just for me to lose my respect for them too. They don’t deserve a respect, do they?
Subject: About how other people bash and hate on Taylor.
Sometimes, some people really do talk without even thinking.
Taylor Swift - I became her fan when her “Fearless” album came out. Other people have known her just before “Tim McGraw” was known worldwide. But, the moment I got to know her, things have changed so much for me.. and it’s one thing I always thank God for - that He allowed me to meet and know someone like her in the time when I needed someone to understand me most. Let’s admit it: in all these crazy up & down moments that life could bring, it’s not everyday that you get to know someone whom you could feel like you are not alone. It’s not everyday that you meet someone who could change your life forever.
To other people, it may be Demi Lovato, Justin Bieber, One Direction, Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez.. and list could go on. The point is, we’ve all met someone who became an inspiration to us.. to shape us.. to become our role model.. and to have someone to look up to. And for me, Taylor Swift is one of those people.
Even if I haven’t personally met her (go on: you’re free to say that she doesn’t even know me), I don’t care. The thing is, God let me know her so, I could have a model to change the way I live my life.
But rumors and issues also spread about her. It’s inevitable. But that’s what other people ONLY know, and they constantly judge her like as if she’s expected NOT to make a mistake. C’mon, people. Really?
I know Taylor already had 6 boyfriends for the past 6 years - not long-term relationships + dated other guys too who inspired her to write other love songs. But Taylor is MORE than that.
She expresses her feelings and herself through writing songs, and people have grown aware of that fact. Maybe, that’s the reason why they’re so curious about who she’s going out with.. how long their relationship would last.. and waiting for the next album because of the break-up. But, she’s MORE than that.
Who she dates and how she falls in love is actually none of our business, isn’t it? Just because we don’t experience the same way she date guys, that doesn’t give us the authority to constantly judge her like as if she’s just using guys so she could write something for her next album. C’mon, you guys. No one would ever risk having their hearts broken over and over, just so we could express and write something. I know, Taylor isn’t like that.
She may be talking about love and heartbreaks a lot, but she’s MORE than that.
Sometimes, what other people say about her is painful on my part too; especially because I know her more than those people who have nothing good to say about her.
Because, Taylor is like a bestfriend to me too; and her personality shines brighter than what gossip magazines say about her. She has been a huge part of my life. That’s why, when people say mean things about her, I can’t help but frown and wish there is something I could do to make them not think like that at all; because if I were Taylor, that would definitely hurt my feelings (especially if it isn’t true).
People abuse the excuse of “freedom of speech” as a means to express themselves.. which I wish is not happening because I find it immature and waste of time to hate on someone. Yeah, you can use “freedom of speech” everytime you want; but what you don’t have is one thing: and that’s respect.
You don’t have respect for someone you’re hating; and the same way, you won’t receive respect from someone you’re hating and from someone who don’t hate as much as you do.
