Dove Cameron is always there to give her fans some life advice whenever they need it and when it came time to celebrate her 1,000th Instagram post, she dedicated it to those who have always been there for her, her fans. The actress explained just how much her fans means to her and how they've helped her learn more about herself.
"This whole 'having fans' thing is still a new concept to me. I genuinely still feel funny talking about it, like I'm being full of myself or vain. But you're here, and you're real people, and not acknowledging our relationship feels like a disrespect to you guys, more than it feels like humility at this point. We have this undeniable, weird special connection that is unlike any other relationship in the world. Because unlike blood family, we chose each other, kind of like friends," she wrote.
"I am so overwhelmed by the actual, real, authentic love that I get from strangers on a daily basis. It makes me cry regularly. How powerful must a love like that be to be able to be shared between you and me that we can both feel it without even meeting? I care about you all individually. Nothing else in the world is like that. I can't believe I live a life where I get to put myself out into the world every day, showing you all my most vulnerable moments, capturing it all on camera or stage and letting you all decide how you feel about it/me/my flaws/my successes/my worst moments/my loss/my love/my heart and the stuff in my brain at every moment of the day...and then you all care enough to tell me 'good job'. And 'I'm proud of you' and 'I love you' and most of all: 'You helped me' or 'this inspired me' OR 'I needed this'. You have no idea what it means to me. Self love is hard. But you all have made me love myself and have helped me through some of the hardest times in my life, already & I'm ONLY 19. WHAT?! And I hope some of the words that I've said and some of the things that I've done have been able to reach you & touch your heart like you do EVERY DAY with me. And in that way: we are like family. Thank you."
