Taylor Swift is known for leaving meaningful, heartfelt comments on fans’ Instagram pictures, but her latest note is enough to start the tears flowing.

According to MTV, the ‘Shake It Off’ singer wrote a lengthy, beyond heartwarming response to a bullied fan, offering carefully thought out words of wisdom and letting her know they were in this thing together.

“Reading this made me so sad because I love seeing you in your videos and photos being so happy and wide eyed, like the world isn’t as harsh and unfair as it actually is. I hate thinking about your pretty face covered in tears, but I know why you’re crying because I’ve been in your place,” Taylor wrote. “This isn’t a high school thing or an age thing. It’s a people thing. … It’s just what they do, and you’re a target because you live your life loudly and boldly. You’re bright and joyful and so many people are cynical. But the only way they win is if your tears turn to stone and make you bitter like them. … Just don’t let them change you or stop you from singing or dancing around to your favorite song.”

“You’re going into high school this week and this is your chance to push the reset button on how much value you give the opinion of these kids, most of whom have NO idea who they are,” the pop star continued. “I’m so proud of you and protective of you because you DO. If they don’t like you for being yourself, be yourself even more.”

“Every time someone picks on me, I’ll think of you in the hopes that every time someone picks on you, you’ll think of me… and how we have this thread that connects us,” she concluded. “Let them keep living in the darkness and we’ll keep walking in the sunlight. Forever on your side, Taylor.”
