get to know me: ten bands or musicians // taylor swift

“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.”
