10 Taylor Swift Lyrics To Inspire All Of Us To Be A Better, More Graceful, And Confident Woman

From self-love, to heartbreak, to drama, to toxic friendships, Taylor has taught me how to get through anything.

10 Taylor Swift Lyrics To Inspire All Of Us To Be A Better, More Graceful, And Confident Woman

"Me" just came out and it inspired me to go back and listen to all of Taylor Swift's albums. Even though I was only in elementary school when she debuted her first album, I almost feel like I've grown up with her. She's taught me so many lessons and is someone whose music I can turn to when I'm happy or sad.

While some people may think that her songs are basic, I couldn't disagree more. Her lyrics speak to millions of people all around the world and empower the next generation of powerful female artists, innovators, and leaders. Here are ten of my favorite Taylor Swift lyrics that inspire me to be a better, more graceful, and confident woman.

1. “Band-Aids on’t fix bullet holes”


People are going to hurt you. They're going to do things that you're not going to like, and they're going to say things to hurt you. Oftentimes, these can be the ones who are closest to you, and they make accuses like they're just being honest with you. First off, you should surround yourself with people who hype you up and don't tear you down. Secondly, words hurt, and it is okay to feel upset when people are unkind to you.

2. "Someday I'll be living in a big old city and all you're ever gonna be is mean”


Don't let people discourage you. People are going to say you can't own your own company, can't be a senator, or can't be student body president. Keep dreaming, keep slaying, and keep being you. In the end, the people who were mean to you will probably want to be you.

3. “The world moves on, another day, another drama, drama”


There will always be something to worry about. Oftentimes we stress so much about trivial things but Taylor got it right. There's always going to be stuff going on, and we need to stop worrying about things that are out of our control.

4. "When we go crashing down, we come back every time.”


Even when you're feeling low, don't lose hope. There is always a light at the end up the tunnel and we're stronger than we think. Whether its a breakup, a bad test grade, a broken bone, or a missed opportunity, we come back every single time.

5. “'Cause darling I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream.”


Just because someone looks like a queen doesn't mean they have their life together.

6. “We're happy free confused and lonely at the same time.”

Just because you're happy doesn't mean you can't be lonely. I feel like oftentimes people tell us we have to suppress our emotions or that we're being too dramatic. It's okay to feel a surge of emotions and don't let people tell you that you have to feel a certain way about something or someone.

7. “In your life you'll do things greater than dating the boy on the football team.”


I know right, at some point in our lives we thought it was so important for us to date the most popular person in school. I think this taught me that oftentimes we get so caught up in wanting superficial things. What we think is the most important thing in the world one day, we might totally forget about a couple of months or years later.

8. “Heartbreak is the national anthem. We sing it proudly.”


Even on our darkest days, Taylor Swift has taught me that I'm never alone. Instead of bringing each other down, we should be building each other up. We should recognize our heartbreak and band together to make it through this crazy world.

9. “I've found time can heal most anything and you just might find who you're supposed to be.”


Sometimes in the midst of the chaos within life we just need to take a step back and let time pass by. We're always constantly growing- emotionally, physically, and psychologically- and sometimes we just need time to get over some of our hardest obstacles. In the end, we'll have learned from our mistakes and will be that much stronger.

10. “Stay Beautiful”


No matter where you are or what you're doing, stay true to who you are. You're beautiful, and the world needs to know that.

So thank you, Taylor Swift, for always being there for us. Thank you for always being yourself and for bringing so much class and elegance to an otherwise chaotic world. Thank you for inspiring me, and for being a voice for millions of people all around the world.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

Rebecca Jarrett

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
