Taylor Swift is already a pro at writing breakup anthems—and, as it turns out, she’s also a pro at giving personal advice to heartbroken fans.

One fan, recently broken up with via text after four months of dating, told Swift via Tumblr that she was feeling “crumbled” and that she didn’t know what to do. So Swift replied by acknowledging how devastating that must be and giving some pretty solid pointers: “There is nothing wrong with avoiding people who hurt you,” she wrote. “Protect yourself, please. I’m so sorry this happened.”

As if her paragraphs-long reply wasn’t enough, Swift also curated a short “breakup/moving on playlist” (listen below) featuring tracks by Charli XCX and Azure Ray. In others words, Taylor Swift is the best.
