Taylor Swift’s Bestie Abigail Anderson Gives Her Friend A Sweet Show Of Support In The Midst Of Breakup News
Taylor Swift's squad may make all the headlines, but it's her friendship with OG bestie Abigail Anderson that is truly #FriendshipGoals in my book. I have long admired the Nashville besties' close relationship, ever since T. Swift first detailed the difficulties of growing up on "Fifteen," through the time she surprised Anderson with Dashboard Confessional frontman Chris Carrabba to serenade her on her birthday (though I was so jealous I couldn't even watch the videos). Swift and Anderson have always been there for each other, so of course it was Abigail Anderson who wrote a sweet message about T. Swift after reports of the musician’s breakup with Calvin Harris broke. Surprising, no, but healing? Absolutely.
As anyone going through a breakup has undoubtedly learned, leave it to your longtime best friend, one who has known you through heartache and heartbreak, to lift you up when you're feeling down. In #Taybigail's case, T. Swift's redheaded bestie just did it a little more publicly than most, taking to Instagram hours after the Tayvin breakup news to give a kind shoutout to her old friend.
Sharing a photo of a hand-painted card that reads, "My weird heart loves your weird heart" (a gift presumably from Swift, because I feel like I can creepily decipher her handwriting), Anderson captioned the image: "There are few things more significant or valuable than a friendship that will withstand the test of time. Thank you for getting me. Always. @taylorswift."
While Anderson's message is more about Swift being there for her than the other way around, the fact that she plainly states how important Swift's friendship is to her is a definite show of support for her friend, a reminder that their relationship is everlasting and it means the world to her. Though Anderson didn't mention Swift and Harris' breakup explicitly, it seems like the timing of the post — complete with the words of praise for Swift — would be too much of a coincidence to be accidental.
Since Swift and Anderson have always been there to help one another through brutal breakups (the bridge of Fifteen — "And Abigail gave everything she had to a boy who changed his mind / And we both cried" — springs to mind), it's incredibly heartwarming to know that some things, like true friendship and your childhood friends, never change.
