CAUSE THE PLAYERS GONNA PLAY PLAY PLAY AND THE HATERS GONNA HATE HATE HATE BABY IM JUST GONNA SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE IT OFF
I’ve had every part of my life dissected — my choices, my actions, my words, my body, my style, my music. When you live your life under that kind of scrutiny, you can either let it break you, or you can get really good at dodging punches. And when one lands, you know how to deal with it. And I guess the way that I deal with it is to shake it off.
I often wonder why we give so much of ourselves to people who have never valued our time, hearts, or being. Why do we pour so much of ourselves into those who have no desire to pour it back into us? We only leave ourselves empty. Empty and still searching for what we once hoped to find in them.
