We'll be the first to admit that Taylor Swift lyrics pretty much describe our lives ("Someday I'll be living in a big ol' city/ And all you're ever gonna be is mean"). And, truthfully, that we kinda want to be Taylor Swift, sometimes.
There's a reason that the 22-year-old country girl has risen to super-stardom so quickly: Besides the catchy, infectious music, Taylor has a wisdom beyond her years. And it's not just in her lyrics -- in her words and actions, Taylor is fearless, successful, and totally fierce -- and we're totally inspired by her.
In honor of "Red," Taylor's new album full of lessons on love and life, selling over 1.2 million copies this week (!) we've put together 10 life lessons from the pop star. Click through the slideshow below for advice on being single, finding "the one," and embracing who you are, flaws and all.
