London: Country singer Taylor Swift says she began concentrating on her music career after facing loneliness in her teen years.

The 23-year-old `Love Story` hitmaker said penning songs has helped her a lot in learning about life, reported Daily Star.

"I started writing songs because I wasn`t invited to parties and sleep-overs. I wasn`t noticed by the guy I like," Swift said.

"Writing songs has taught me a lot. One of the hardest lessons to learn in life is there`s sometimes nothing you can do to make someone like you if they don`t. It`s okay to let that go," she added.

The `I Knew You Were Trouble` singer has previously dated celebrities like Jake Gyllenhaal and Harry Styles.
