Taylor Swift has written countless songs about love, relationships and even bullies. Her lyrics can get you through any tough time. Check it out:
Problem: Your crush likes another girl.
Song to listen to: “Teardrops On My Guitar”
What you can learn from it: It can really hurt to hear your crush talk about how much he likes someone else. If you’re in this situation, do yourself a favor and change the subject. Hearing about his crush will only make you feel worse. Even girls like Taylor go through it! “I used to have a huge crush on this guy, who would sit there every day talking to me about another girl,” Tay reveals.
Problem: You’re getting bullied at school.
Song to listen to: “Mean”
What you can learn from it: So the “popular” girls are picking on you, or some boys made fun of your glasses. It’s no fun to get picked on, but if T-Swift can get through it, so can you. The keyword to take away from this song is “someday.” Someday you will be stronger and more confident, someday you will be successful and someday you won’t care what anyone else thinks!
Problem: Your crush is being a jerk.
Song to listen to: “I Knew You Were Trouble”
What you can learn from it: If your boyfriend isn’t texting you back or says mean things to you when you hang out, this is the song for you. It’s really hard when you like someone but know they’re not the right person for you. Always do what’s best for yourself. If he’s “trouble” now, things will only get worse!
Problem: You’re fighting with your parents.
Song to listen to: “The Best Day”
What you can learn from it: Just watch the music video for this song and you’ll remember how much you love your parents. Your mom might be really strict, and your dad could totally embarrass you — but they do it because they care about you. Tell them you appreciate everything they do, but you just need some space.
