Ahead of her 30th birthday, Taylor Swift is sharing 30 things she learned before turning 30. “I’ve come to a realization that I need to be able to forgive myself for making the wrong choice, trusting the wrong person, or figuratively falling on my face in front of everyone,” she writes. “Step into the daylight and let it go.” Link in bio for the full essay penned by ELLE’s April cover star.⁣ ⁣ ELLE April 2019:⁣ Editor-in-chief: @ninagarcia⁣ Creative director: #stephengan Cover star: @taylorswift⁣ Photographer: @benhassett⁣ Stylist: @paulcavaco⁣ Wearing: @burberry⁣ Hair: @sergenormant⁣ Makeup: @francelledaly, @lovecraftbeauty⁣ Nails: @DeniseBourne37, @deborahlippmann⁣ Producer: Kristen Terry, @roscoproduction

Disarming someone’s petty bullying can be as simple as learning to laugh,” she wrote in the article.

“In my experience, I’ve come to see that bullies want to be feared and taken seriously.”

“A few years ago, someone started an online hate campaign by calling me a snake on the internet. The fact that so many people jumped on board with it led me to feeling lower than I’ve ever felt in my life.”

She goes on to write that while an apology would be “nice”, she feels more satisfied in knowing that she was able to “survive it”.

#TaylorSwift on accepting her body: “I worked hard to retrain my brain that a little extra weight means curves, shinier hair, and more energy. I think a lot of us push the boundaries of dieting, but taking it too far can be really dangerous. There is no quick fix. I work on accepting my body every day.” Link in bio to read 30 things Taylor learned before turning 30.⁣ ⁣ ELLE April 2019:⁣ Editor-in-chief: @ninagarcia⁣ Creative director: #stephengan Cover star: @taylorswift⁣ Photographer: @benhassett⁣ Stylist: @paulcavaco⁣ Wearing: @gucci Hair: @sergenormant⁣ Makeup: @francelledaly, @lovecraftbeauty⁣ Nails: @denisebourne37, @deborahlippmann⁣ Producer: Kristen Terry, @roscoproduction

She continues: “It would be nice if we could get an apology from people who bully us, but maybe all I’ll ever get is the satisfaction of knowing I could survive it, and thrive in spite of it.”

During the singer’s Stadium Reputation Tour, Tay had a giant inflatable snake which she named Karyn, an obvious dig at Kardashian, that appeared during ‘Look What You Made Me Do’, a song that many believe to be about the reality star and her rapper husband.

“I can’t tell you how hard I had to keep from laughing every time my 63-foot inflatable cobra named Karyn appeared onstage in front of 60,000 screaming fans,” Swift quipped. “It’s the Stadium Tour equivalent of responding to a troll’s hateful Instagram comment with ‘lol.’”

Swift wrote, “I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative, one that I have never asked to be a part of, since 2009.”

Holy fkn shitballs. Do you guys realise that this thing has been raging on for exactly a decade now?
