Taylor Swift’s life advice is just what the doctor ordered! On May 18, the singer-songwriter, 32, received her honorary doctorate of fine arts from New York University and imparted a bit of wisdom to its graduating class of 2022. In a moving commencement speech, Taylor dished about her experience growing up and dating in the public eye, the importance of being told ‘no’ and her experience being canceled. While Taylor noted that she typically stays away from giving out “unsolicited advice,” she decided to share a few “life hacks” with her fellow graduates at Yankee Stadium that all centered around “navigating life, love, pressure, choices, shame, hope and friendship.” In her life, Taylor said, “The times I was told, ‘No,’ or wasn’t included, wasn’t chosen, didn’t win, didn’t make the cut…looking back, it really feels like those moments were as important, if not more crucial, than the moments I was told ‘yes.'” The “22” singer then began to list moments that felt like endings, but instead acted as catalysts to change both her trajectory and perspective on life, including her heavily discussed romantic history. “Having the world treat my love life like a spectator sport in which I lose every single game was not a great way to date in my teens and twenties,” she said. “But it taught me to protect my private life fiercely.” She continued, “Being publicly humiliated over and over again at a young age was excruciatingly painful but it forced me to devalue the ridiculous notion of minute by minute, ever-fluctuating social relevance and likability.” And, Taylor joked, “Getting canceled on the internet and nearly losing my career gave me an excellent knowledge of all the types of wine.” In another candid moment, Taylor described herself as someone who is well-versed in “the pressure of living your life through the lens of perfectionism,” but leveled with her fellow graduates that sometimes life doesn’t work out as planned. “I leave you with this: We are led by our gut instincts, our intuition, our desires and fears, our scars and our dreams. And you will screw it up sometimes. So will I,” she shared. “And when I do, you will most likely read about it on the internet.” All jokes aside, Taylor added, “Hard things will happen to us. We will recover. We will learn from it. We will grow more resilient because of it.” “I hope you know how proud I am to share this day with you.
