this is kind of random but i think about this so often.. i’m pretty sure you live way across the world from me but you’re become such an important part in my life. i could write a whole book and still have more to say about how much i admire you. anyway, i’ve been thinking a lot about what life will be like in maybe 10 years. like, what will we be doing? perhaps will you still be doing your blog even though bts probably will disband by then? will we all move on? will tumblr become something that no one uses? it’s just so crazy to think about how 20-30 years in the future, every now and then i’ll get a memory of this one tumblr gif maker who made such an impact on my life that i never even met. ahh this is probably really confusing but it’s just so mind-boggling to think about! the future is so scary but so fascinating..
hey sweetheart, i am sorry for taking so long to reply to your ask, i honestly had to think a lot of what to say but then i also got busy and i didn’t want to answer half-heartedly 🥺
i totally understand what you mean and i honestly find myslef thinking about the future way more than about present. about the future of bts and our own, around two months ago i had a quite big breakdown revolving around this exact topic and some of my followers have seen, and also discussed with me, because truth be told the vision of the future where there’s no bts, no fandom, no nothing - a main source of happiness for many people - is honestly very scary. but we also know that this will happen one day, and that’s okay. life goes on hahah
i also think a lot about one thing that i hope is true, in a way, because if it was, it would be definitely a lot easier to live, what i mean is that… you know how people say that “bts found you when you most needed them”? yeah… and i just think that, there’s always a time in a life of a fan where you find something that makes you even more happy than the artists you supported till that day. and that’s the time when people move on, because they found their happiness, they learned how to live their best life, and they don’t need to rely so much on things that we value so much right now. but that’s a good thing, absolutely, i think that bts’ goal is to make our lives exactly like that, just like namjoon said - “use bts to love yourslef” - i think this is what they want us to do, it’s like they communicate to us that “its okay to move on, but make sure to move on being happy, because that’s what’s we all were working so hard on together” and i hope that one day all of us will be able to reach this point.
you know.. your words mean a lot to me, although i feel like i shouldn’t make this post about myslef or ask you what exactly made you feel that way about my blog, but thank you so much and i really send you all the love and i hope i will continue to give you only good experience, and i wish you all the best ❤️ but just know that i understand you, and i feel similar. there’s so many people here that i admire so much and who have taught me so much that i never met, never saw and never will. and sometimes i wonder how all of this is gonna end, how this whole community will look like idk.. maybe 10 years after disbanding. we all will probably have new lifes, different priorities, we will forget about a lot of things and people. but i also always tell myslef that it’s good and that everything is alright, because life doesn’t stop and there are different phrases, and living in the past no matter how good it was isn’t good either, because we have to experience other things too, because there’s so so much to yet experience and learn. this, all those years that we will be with bts, it’s just one of those good moments in life, and i wish that everyone thought about it in the future as something good no matter the fact that it wouldn’t be there anymore, because you were happy at that time, you had the time of your life with bts and everyone in the fandom, and you should be proud of yourslef and be happy for all the things you’ve learned and experienced. because things that are happening and people you meet right now, still shape you into the person that you will be in 20-30 years, and what we have now is great, so i’m certain we will be happy in the way that bts would want us to be, i’m sure we will.
