So this is my Taylor Connect profile. I've been a Taylor fan for awhile but not as hardcore as I am right now. Taylor literally changed my life two weeks ago. You see, I've been struggling with depression, anxiety, and anorexia for the better part of 11 years now, and on October 22nd I wanted to end my life. I was curled in a ball on my mom's bed crying about how worthless my life was, how I just wanted to die, etc. In the midst of calming down, one of my friends posted about if anyone could be in NYC by the next day by 8 PM for a private Taylor concert. i had never seen her live before so I quickly replied that I could. They put me down on the guest list and I cheered up, thinking about how I was going to get through the next 24 hours. Well, the next day I got to NYC and met so many amazing Taylor fans, I got to see Taylor Swift live at the Ed Sullivan theater - I was 2nd row balcony - and listening to Taylor talk about how she didn't let any crap get her down anymore and she just lived her life the way she wanted to was inspiring. I vowed that I would never let anything get in the way of my happiness and no matter how badly I wanted to, I wouldn't self-harm, I wouldn't take my own life, and in times where I want to, I would think back to how happy I was in that moment, seeing my idol. Taylor Swift saved my life on October 23rd, 2012, and I just want to tell her that.
