According to Swift, it took a lot of self-examination to pull through the overwhelming amount of hate. Since then, Swift has realized that she needed to “grow up” and not allow herself to be so influenced by other’s opinions.

Swift overcame the hate

Swift said: "People had so much fun hating me, and they didn’t really need very many reasons to do it. I felt like the situation was pretty hopeless". Swift very nearly quit music but she stayed strong and managed to get through it and come out stronger.
