“When you start to compare yourself to other people, please change the channel in your mind to something else,” Swift said of only seeing the good parts of life everyone goes through. “Because I think that when it comes to how we see ourselves, other people are really mean, but we are really mean to ourselves. It’s easy to get confused,” she goes on about feeling not special or having anything important to say. “We all feel like that sometimes.”
“If there’s one thing I want you to remember from tonight, remember what I’m about to say. You need to look into the mirror in the morning and not tell yourself that you’re not special, or that you’re not good enough, or that you’re not pretty, or you’re not awesome,” she confidently says.
“Let me tell you what you are not. You are not the opinion of someone that doesn’t know you,” she proudly exclaims to thousands of fans.
Swift can ultimately relate to her own words. Over the years in the spotlight, she’s been slammed for her dating habits and then writing bitter songs about her exes. Media has scrutinized aspects of her personal life, twisting what has been seen versus what is her truth.
“You are not damaged goods just because you have made mistakes in your life,” she said before encouraging fans to keep going in life chasing their dreams.
“Now let me tell you what you are. You are your own definition of beautiful and worthwhile. You are someone who is wiser because you’ve made mistakes; not damaged, wiser.”
“I want you to know that the way I see mistakes, they don’t make you damaged, they make you clean,” she says finishing up the three and a half minute speech.
