Most people have come to know Savannah Chrisley through her part in her family’s reality TV show, “Chrisley Knows Best.” But while that show has remained successful ever since its debut back in 2014, countless fans in recent years also have come to know and gain inspiration from Savannah thanks to her various social media channels in which she constantly tries to find ways to infuse a sense of hope and gratitude into a world that, unfortunately, is filled with so much hatred.
On Jan. 15, Savannah did just that with a new Instagram post citing none other than music mega star Taylor Swift. “Read this quote … and then read it again,” Savannah wrote alongside an inspirational quote attributed to Taylor. “After reading it … what’s the first thought that popped into your head? Are you teaching your kids this lesson? And most importantly … are YOU using your words to build others up?”
Indeed, the words pack quite a punch to anyone reading them. “Words can break someone into a million pieces but they can also put them back together,” the quote reads. “I hope you use yours for good because the only words you’ll regret more than the ones left unsaid are the ones you use to intentionally hurt someone.”
The words she could be speaking might be those of the haters that always seem to live within the dark halls of social media, ready to pounce on even the sweetest and most inspiring of the bunch — such as Savannah herself.
“I get so many hateful messages and comments from some of you and I want you to know … I love you,” Savannah wrote. “I’m not fighting back with you … but please know … just because we have verified accounts and are ‘celebrities’ doesn’t mean that we don’t have feelings like you! The words that you say hurt people … and no matter how many followers someone has, social status, economic status, etc. … everyone has feelings! ‘Celebrities’ deserve to be loved and treated with respect like you treat your friends. We only show you what we want you to see … but we go through things, too. So next time you think about posting a negative comment … just go and unfollow us please … because we don’t need the hate. Love you all.”
She is so right — we don’t need the hate.
Unfortunately, when one lives in the public eye, this sort of hatred seems to go with the job, along with people’s unsolicited opinions about personal matters. Recently, Savannah found herself back in the news as she shared pics of her new love on Jan. 11. On that day, Savannah posted a heartfelt message to her new man, San Diego Gulls winger Nic Kerdiles, in celebration of his 24th birthday, along with a number of gorgeous pics of the new couple.
And as far as we are concerned, there is nothing to hate about that.
