Taylor Swift thought when she was young that people stopped being mean when they became adults, that they would grow out of it.  Then she found out that never happens, and she discovered that it's not about making it stop, it's about dealing with it in the right way and turning it into something good.  That is what she told her audience at a concert in Glendale, Arizona before she sang her hit "Mean".

No matter how you feel about Taylor, you have to admit she can relate to her young fans and she does her best to help them get though the hard times.   Let's hope her message got through to the Bullies and the Bullied.

Here's some more of what she said.

"No matter where you live or what you do, there's always gonna be someone being mean to you,  someone who says something about you that's not true or talks behind your back or doesn't invite you to something you really wanted to be invited to.

"And I think one thing that I've learned when I realized that, is that it's not so much about wishing away mean people, because they tend to be the kind of people you can't change,  so I think it's better to focus on what you can change.

"Which is how you react to it.  And if you can, possibly make a mental note that you'll never ever make someone else feel the way they make you feel."
