Harry Styles has leant a lot in two years

The last year’s been crazy for One Direction.

Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson are in demand all over the world.

Harry, who’s now dating Taylor Swift, 23, feels like he’s lived 10 years in the last 12 months.

‘If I hadn’t done this, I don’t think I could learn in 10 years what I’ve learnt in the last two,’ Harry tells us.

So what has the 18-year-old taken on board?

‘To a certain degree, that you have to think about other people, as well as looking after yourself,’ he says.

‘If you didn’t, you’d drive yourself crazy, you have to realise you can’t please everyone – it just doesn’t work.

‘There has to come a point where you step back and do something for yourself.

‘I have decided not to let other people’s opinions change what I think.’
