Mean Taylor Swift Analysis

182 Words1 Page
“Mean”, by Taylor Swift, became my signature song in fourth grade. It represented a turning point when I left negativity behind and renewed my commitment to kindness, inclusion, and becoming my own best self. My best friend had turned on me. I spent months grieving and heartbroken and second-guessing our every interaction. I had become afraid to enjoy myself and accomplish things in case it upset her. I felt guilty about my achievements. I hid my capabilities and lessened my aspirations. The more I diminished my ambitions and interests, the less I wanted to attempt, lest I succeed and fuel her anger. Taylor Swift’s lyrics communicate that there 's constructive criticism, there 's professional criticism, and then there 's just plain mean.
