Taylor Swift believes it’s hard being a human being. A human being with million of dollars, multiple properties, bestselling albums, celebrity boyfriends, a wardrobe to die for and everything else you could ever want. Why exactly? Because of all of the emotions you can go through. Sigh. She’s right, she should go build herself a cocoon out of marshmallows, curl up into a little ball and hibernate forever. It’s just too difficult to continue breathing. Taylor says that it’s those emotions that fuel her creativity even if it is hard:

”All these emotions, everything that’s said and all your experience, that’s what inspires the first flicker of a song. It’s hard being a human being.”

Elaborating further on this whole emotional topic, Taylor says there are so many ways to feel, especially when it comes to love – her main source of inspiration. She believes that feeling each different emotion can encourage her to write about them in different ways which explains why she might put herself through the trauma of dating Harry Styles:

”I break down emotions into like 50 million categories. There’s the missing-him kind of sadness. There’s the frustrated-and-confused, don’t-know-why-it-ended kind of sadness, there’s the sadness tinged with anger … There’s the I know we can’t be together but I miss you right now, there’s the sadness tinged with anger, there’s the sadness that has guilt with it, there’s the sadness that has a little bit of hope that he’ll come back. That’s why emotions are so beautiful to write about because they all sound so different to me.”
