I literally cant fucking breathe
IVE BEEN WAITING 2 YEARS FOR THIS VIDEOS RETURN
I’m going to apologize in advance that this is probably going to be long and mushy, and all over the place because I don’t even know where to begin or how to express how I feel.
I guess I’ll start by saying I joined the fandom in July of 2011, before they where really known here in America, I remember using Harry as an example for something in Spanish class and everyone yelled at me because they didn’t know who Harry Styles was. No one knew Harry Styles. I’m very blessed to say I’ve seen them on all 3 tours, (well not WWA yet but I have tickets) and yes, it’s insane to sit back and think about how much has changed since 2010-2014, to watch them go from hardly anything to these giant stars. As a fan, it’s a truly beautiful thing to watch, and by going to every tour, I truly feel as if I’ve been on this jouney with them, everytime I go to see them, the venue is bigger, there’s more fans, more mature songs, and so much has happened to them and me in these past 4 years, and I feel like I’m going through everything with them. Like this photo above says, they have grown up right before my eyes and I don’t even notice it until I look at an old photo and all the memories flood back into my mind.
Now onto how much they mean to me, I can honestly say I don’t know what I’d do without them, they’ve helped me through so much and they’ve always been there. They were here for me when I started highschool, and now I’m about to be a senior and they’ve really helped me through it. Even when things got to be too much and I turned to wrong things, they prevented things from going further and helped me ease out of it. It’s funny because earlier my mom said to me, “I think recently you started to remember the things your therapist used to tell you” when in reality, it’s the boys. That lady didn’t help me with anything, but these 5 boys in One Direction got me out of my shell a little bit, they showed me it’s okay to be yourself and to just live in the moment and enjoy life. Yeah, I still have my problems that maybe they can’t totally help me with, but they certaintly helped me with a lot of my issues and I don’t think I could ever thank them enough for it.
Not only do I thank them for getting me out of some very dark places, I thank them for all the memories they’ve given me. Memories from the 3 concerts I’ve been to, the 2 that I am going to in a few weeks, memories from all the late nights staying up listening to an album leak, and memories of all the HILARIOUS posts this fandom comes up with. And last but not least, the friends I’ve made because of them. I’ve made some amazing friends from all over the world because of them, and they’re also the reason behind mine and my real life best friends friendship.
So basically what I wanted to get at, was that I am so thankful, and so proud of what these boys have accomplished in the past 4 years, and the amazing people they’ve become
Happy 4th Anniversary One Direction
