Carrie Underwood has a beautiful heart and soul, and she even has a beautiful way in which she lives out each and every day of her life.
Yet, in these cruel days, sometimes it’s the beautiful people that take the brunt of some very unhappy people.
In a brand-new interview with Redbook Magazine, Carrie opened up about how online bullies have changed the way she interacts on social media.
“I feel like bullies have changed the way I react to the world,” Carrie explained. “You want to be connected to your fans, and I used to feel like I could go through social media and talk to people, really have that communication. But you get to a point where there are too many mean people saying mean things — probably just to get a reaction from you — and eventually I was like, ‘I don’t know if I can do this.’ You have to have a barrier up, which is sad.”
Luckily, when things get her down, Carrie can look no further than in the eyes of her son Isaiah. “I definitely feel like it’s changed me as a person,” Carrie says of motherhood in general. “I’m happier. I’m in a better mood a lot of the time. He’ll be watching cartoons and I’ll be watching him. I’m completely in love. I love it when he’s sleepy and I get to hold him and smell him. He doesn’t know I’m staring at him and being all googly-eyed!”
