Bts taught me it's ok to struggle and I can rely on them for strength. They taught me to keep loving myself and that life should be enjoyed and we should wear and do what we want. They brought me through my roughest points and I'll be grateful to them forever

… chase after their biggest dreams…
This year was emotionally very hard on me. But BTS’s music reminded me constantly that I, my dreams, my struggles & my fight matters. Made me feel understood, wanted, made me happy and healed me. And the memories made with @BTS_twt made my year💜 #My2019withBTS pic.twitter.com/PNK5vMcOD0

… step out of their comfort zones…
In 2019, @BTS_twt taught me to dive into cultures different from my own. It meant learning a new language (Korean) I know more Korean than I thought possible. They taught me that language is never a barrier unless you let it be. 고마워요! 사랑해요! 🤟🏻💜💜💜💜💜💜💜 #My2019withBTS

… appreciate the inevitable ups and downs of life…
Thanks to @BTS_twt, I learnt that it’s ok to have bad days, it’s ok to not feel well mentally, and it’s ok to cry. And they’ve consistently reminded me that no matter what I’m going through, I’ll always have 7 shoulders to cry on. Thank you 💜#My2019withBTS

The hashtag continues to trend higher up, as more inspired ARMYs gather on Twitter to share their adventures with BTS.
In 2019, @BTS_twt reminded me that I need to live for myself and not just for others. As we level up in life sometimes kids, work, friends, and so’s become our whole life and we start to lose ourselves. They’ve helped me to find myself again. Forever grateful 💜 #My2019withBTS pic.twitter.com/VsRsrmdFz1
