Shake it off! Will You?

Honestly, I had never heard this Taylor Swift song, ‘Shake It Off’. Have you? It has got some powerful lyrics! When I read the topics for this particular post, one simply jumped up to me. I didn’t know why, as I was unaware that such a song exists, let alone what it says. When I went through its lyrics, I felt it was talking about me!

Let’s shake off some useless stuff from our life!

Let’s shake off the weight of expectations

Oh! You expect the good girl I must be?
Wakey wakey! I am me!

Oh! You expect a mute girl I must be?
Wakey wakey! I am me!

Oh! You expect a chatty girl I must be?
Wakey wakey! I am me!

Oh! You expect a decent girl I must be?
Wakey wakey! I am me!

Oh! You expect a pretty girl I must be?
Wakey wakey! I am me!

Oh! You expect a weak girl I must be?
Wakey wakey! I am me!

Oh! You expect a flimsy girl I must be?
Wakey wakey! I am me!

Oh! You expect a thin girl I must be?
Wakey wakey! I am me!

Oh! You expect a calm girl I must be?
Wakey wakey! I am me!

Oh! You expect a decent girl I must be?
Wakey wakey! I am me!

Let’s shake off the competition

Why a competition among ourselves? Let’s support each other, and shake off the negative emotions. I have observed that once we mould our mind into thinking positively about the women around, our whole demeanour transforms. We become one, a support system takes shape, and we end up with a strong community which has our back all the time! Let’s move ahead of petty feelings, and work towards a collective realisation.

Let’s shake off the judgemental perspective

Why judge when you can appreciate? Judging everyone and anyone serves no purpose. It is our superiority complex which makes us judge others. Well, we know, any kind of complex, superior or inferior, is detrimental to our intellectual growth. Each to her own, I do not know what made her behave in such a manner. This is my motive.

Let’s shake off the societal standards

Too thin?
I don’t care!

Too ‘healthy’?
I don’t care!

Too fair?
I don’t care!

Too dark?
I don’t care!

Too hairy?
I don’t care!

Too ‘baldy’?
I don’t care!

Too feminie?
I don’t care!

Too masculine?
I don’t care!

I am what I am, I shake off all what you say

I shake off all what you think

I shake it all off,

And happily I live!

It brings me immense pleasure to share that I, along with 30 other bloggers are celebrating Women’s Day with a twist.

  1. My thought exactly. Why are we so generous in making judgements instead of making compliments? Why can’t we be more accommodating of other? Let’s just shake it off!!! 👍🏻
