Beautiful Words #9 (Another Taylor Edition)

"Maybe you lost someone you never expected you would lose. Maybe you lost yourself. That’s even worse. When you have bad days that just won’t let up, I just hope that you will look in the mirror and remind yourself of what you are and what you are not. You are not your mistakes. You are not damaged goods or money from your failed explorations. You are not the opinion of someone who doesn’t know you. You are a product of the lessons that you’ve learned. You are wiser because you went through something terrible. And you are the person who survived a bunch of rainstorms and kept walking.
I now believe that pain makes you stronger. And now I believe that walking through a lot of rainstorms gets you… Clean."- Taylor Swift, Clean Speech  (1989 Tour)


 
 
 My family is going through a tough season right now and through it, I've figured out that Taylor is right. Our mistakes and trials can make us clean, but it depends on our perspective of it. Every time I listen to this song, I feel empowered and that's why I can't get over it. Good luck on the new school year!
