Lauren Alaina is taking a break from social media and shares that she plans to do some soul searching during her time away. The singer shared the news with a throwback photo of herself, noting how Lauren in that picture didn’t care what other people thought of her.
“This Lauren didn’t care if she wore boy clothes. She preferred it actually,” she writes. “She didn’t know the future. It’s ups and downs. The happiness and pain it held. She didn’t know about heartbreak or loss. She didn’t know how cruel people can be or how much words can hurt, but she didn’t care what people thought of her or her boy clothes.” She continues, “She was happy and sure of herself. She knew she wanted to write songs and sing them. She loved fiercely and boldly. And most importantly, she knew how to smile through a mom bob.”
Lauren says that her goal now is “to live every day to be more like her,” adding, “I’m looking behind every rock and corner for her this year, and I’m going to find her.”
