Swift addressed the Class of 2022 with an emotional speech in which she talked about trying what you want and not being ashamed of it, because in the end it’s those mistakes that will get you where you want to be.
“My experience has been that my mistakes have led to the best things in my life.Embarrassing yourself when you are wrong is part of the human experience. Waking up, dusting yourself off and seeing who still wants to go out with you and laugh at what happened is a gift.
“The times I was told no, that I wasn’t implied, that I wasn’t selected, that I didn’t win… Looking back, those moments seem to have been just as important, if not more important, than the moments when I said yes,” The artist said.

Another thing he emphasized was learning to “let go” because in life there are situations that end up becoming a burden and that despite the belief that sometimes you end up “losing”, the truth is that perhaps that loss is more than you gain “.
“So it can be hard to hear this: In your life, you will say the wrong thing, trust the wrong people, underreact, overreact, hurt people who don’t deserve it, think too much, think nothing at all—sabotage.
“Creating a reality in which there is only your experience, spoiling the perfect moments for yourself and others, denying you have done anything wrong, failing to take steps to remedy the situation, feeling extreme guilt, letting the guilt go away, hitting rock bottom, and finally coming to terms with the damage you’ve caused, trying to do what It’s better, do it again, and I’m not going to lie, it will make you lose things.
“What I’m trying to say is that losing things doesn’t just mean losing. A lot of times when we lose something, we win too.
“Now you have the school structure to chart your own path. Every decision you make will lead to the next, which leads to the next. And I know sometimes it’s hard to decide what to do. There are times in life when you have to stand up for yourself.” For others, the thing is The right thing to do is to step back and apologize. Fight times and running times. Wait times and times to leave.”Swift has been added.
