Taylor Swift gets real about friendships and growing up
In the recent interview with Elle, Taylor spoke about her "squad" and how it stemmed from childhood insecurities.
"In my twenties I found myself surrounded by girls who wanted to be my friend. So I shouted it from the rooftops, posted pictures, and celebrated my newfound acceptance into a sisterhood, without realising that other people might still feel the way I did when I felt so alone."
"It's important to address our long-standing issues before we turn into the living embodiment of them."
Taylor also went on to addressed how her friendships have changed over the years and the group has gotten smaller. "Something about 'we're in our young twenties!' hurls people together into groups that can feel like your chosen family and maybe they will be for the rest of your life. Or maybe they'll just be your comrades for an important phase, but not forever."
Taylor goes on to talk about banishing drama, and that if "someone in your life is hurting you, draining you, or causing you pain in a way that feels resolvable, blocking their number isn't cruel. It's sad but sometimes when you grow, you outgrow relationships. You may leave behind friendships along the way, but you'll always keep the memories."
