This empowering song finds Banks, having experienced real pain in the past, using the traumatic experience to help others. She explained to Time
: "Have you ever read about wounded healers? It's somebody who's been through something where they felt hurt or traumatized. Real pain. Real pain hurts so bad. When you've gone through something and you've overcome it, you're able to heal other people."
"A wounded healer, I think, is a lot more powerful than a healer that has not been wounded," she added. "In 'Weaker Girl,' I was coming from a wounded healer's perspective."
