Change makes you stronger

An Experience that Changed your Life

What changed your life?

An interesting question!

I know the experience that changed my life, and most of you know that too.

Tell me what made you change your outlook on life?

Was it a traumatic experience?

Life is incredible with change!

The experience can be challenging, giving up sometimes is the way for you to get away from the problem.

I was once angry, sad, and unhappy and felt trapped in a different life.

I got over it when I felt good about myself after writing about my experiences.

Those were the moments that made me feel trapped in a corner.

The walls were high and had blocked off reality for me.

I focused on myself to allow for the healing process.

I wished, and I thought of what I knew would make me this strong person that I am today. Challenges broke my heart and mended my heart.

Positive moments and happy moments got me to this level of my life.

  • I had to live my life in a positive way.

Now I have those moments but in a different way.

I did not want to waste my time doing anything I did not want to do.

I did not want to be afraid of expressing the real me in all situations.

I wanted to do what made me feel fulfilled.

When I started getting out I gained more confidence.

My life depended on communication.

I am unique and showing off my uniqueness had allowed me to hold my head up high.

I discovered another being I did not know existed in me.

  • So, what changed your life?

Qualities and true expressions show the real you in the worst situations.

  • Who or what do you love and want more in your life?

  • What do you love about you?

  • What do you want the most in your life?

  • Do you think the need and want in your life can cover the change in you?

Your passion for a certain sport can allow you to grow and feel the change in life.

  • What have you accomplished?

  • Have you reached your goals?

I learned a foreign language and am proud of my new accomplishment.

Writing is my passion.

In my accomplishments and passion, there lies my greatest of strengths.

I know what it is like to stay for all times.

I discovered my values, another culture, a foreign language and in the different people I met, and had improved my knowledge along the way.

My ideal lifestyle is not a simple one but a great one.

I live to the standard of my culture.

  • I like the finer things in life.

People change all the time but changing through an experience is different to that.

I admire people who work the hardest toward their achievements.

People who inherit a rich life from previous generations are not hard working.

When you show your strengths daily and reach those goals with a clear mind that is a worthwhile opportunity to look at.

Be happier with change in sharing your passion, and values daily in making it part of your routine.

What you discover about your life will always stay within and can sometimes surprise you.

  • Is there an incident that changed your life?

  • How did you cope with that experience?

Life is full of surprises.

  • Is it an incident that made you see how precious your life is to you?

  • Was it a near-death experience?

It could have been a drug overdose.

  • Were you depressed from a break up?

  • Did you have a nightmare that had changed your life?

  • Did you change after marriage?

  • Did love change you?

  • Did age have anything to do with the change in your life?

To be more aware of your life changes do what you love best.

Regrets can't be avoided these incidents happen and you need to forgive others for their wrong actions.

Don't stick to the same old routine. You tend to appreciate life more when you focus on the best moments.

Learn from your mistakes rather picking on what you could have accomplished.

Live life freely.

In the beginning I always had high expectations and that did not work out well for me.

I wanted what was out of reach. I decided to live in the moment and love what I do.

I determined my destiny and now know where to be, and what to do with my life. I had to know myself before knowing others.

I am the bigger person, I forgave and had to let go of the small stuff.

Any incident can change your life, prepared or not changes happen.

Nothing will come your way if you don't work for it.

You need to go through change with those who feel for you.

Everything in life happens for a reason.

People come in to your life for a reason.

It is you who has to cope with it all.

You can bring yourself down, or feel at your highest level depending on the experience that changed your life.

A divorce can make you re-think about marriage for the second time round.

Your first kiss or your first break up can change the way you feel about future relationships.

A first surgery.

An abusive relationship or marriage.

A book that changed your life.

First pregnancy.

People around you can change your life.


Some people feel a change after having children.

Your attitude in life can change you.


Memories can make you a different person.

A job you dreamed of having can make that change in your daily routine.

When you have a crush on someone your habits change.

The sign of fear disappears.

The time in your life when you accept change you change with that experience.

It happens at anytime that you would realize how important some people are in your life.

You will know when an experience changed your life when the tears don't roll down anymore.

Nothing can hurt you when your heart feels like stone.

The change leads you to a better life.

The moment you see life is meaningful, and let go of what no longer can hurt you.

Seeing your life as more fortunate than most people you know ought to show change.

You can't live without pain; you just have to know how to deal with pain.

Any experience can change your life, only you will know how to pass the obstacles.

  • Life is what you make of it!

A series of events in your life changes you.

To be able to deal with change accept it from within.

I accepted my life changes through all experiences.

I have become stronger and happier in my own way.

  • You can't change the way others think, but you can change the way you think about life.

I feel free and have a clear mind in this life.

I know it was hard and can still be at times but I have to live my life to the fullest.

The little things matter the most and I try to focus on what I know is best for me.

  • How did you cope with an experience that changed your life?

  • Say what you want to freely to keep a load off your shoulders!

  • Don't doubt your thoughts!

It can be harsh experiences or good experiences life is just that.

Gardening changed a part of my life

      Everything that happens makes changes to my life and even the little things that happen to other people change their lives too. They may be small changes barely noticeable, but changes just the same. They add up over time, but for some reason only changes from big events seem to register in our minds.

      Change is the one constant in this world. Everything is changing all time even when seemingly nothing is happening.

      Good subject and very thought provoking!

      Certainly each thing we experience in life changes us in some way. You have listed many things that impact us. I have experienced so many of them and each has had an effect, too many to list here in comments. Thank you for another great contemplative hub.

      suzettenaples thank you for stopping by. It is just that you know when a challenge or tragedy has to happen to us before we see our lives in another perspective. Life is precious and should be treated as that gift. My idea about writing a memoir about the change in my life what do you think, and any ideas?

      Oh Devika, how to answer all these contributing to life changing questions. By your permission let me share one instance, always regarded as #1.

      As young boy in a dream I met Jesus Christ , we engaged in a heartfelt , life changing conversation , so vivid and powerful strange enough waking me up somehow scared and somehow wondering.( Strange, isn't ?) While wiping up tears gushing from my eyes, sitting in the bed inside of my spirit I heard a small tender voice answering some questions I never dare to ask anyone neither adult or young, regarding my future, namely spiritual eternity.( It was during WW2 when many young people i knew were killed and I was attending their funerals...) On this particular day I noticed a new awareness of inner myself , gradually accepting it, yet never questioning. A few years later when at 15 I left parents house to live and support myself in away city, I begun to understand the words " I will always be with you..." - true to this very moment , - changed and misunderstood....

      There are so many things that changed my life I can't point to any particular one. There are things changing my life right now that I don't even know about yet. Recently I almost had another almost life changing experience that I got out of at the last minute, hopefully for the better. Great hub!

      I wouldn't be able to name just one experience that changed my life. Hopefully I change with each experience. Probably the greatest change, though, happened nine years ago when I almost died. I had to either change or cease living. :)

      My biggest challenge: over a period of weeks I went blind in my left eye due to MS, developed walking and hand problems at the same time to the extent I couldn't drive or eat properly. I didn't know if this was the beginning of much more or just a terrible incident that would get better.

      Devika, the first big change for me was initiated by my divorce. The most recent change is becoming a caregiver to my mother. You're right. Life is what you make of it, and I keep moving forward toward the fulfillment of my purpose. Thanks for posing this important question.

      Hello Ed, thank you for sharing your thoughts here. I remained positive through my worst situations. I am thinking of writing a memoir what do you think? It has been a long ride for me and finally I feel better than ever. I appreciate you stopping by.

      Hello sweet lady , I believe it is traumatic experiences in life that affect us the most , for me anyway , perhaps what we can do best is to remedy that which we think IS traumatic ? Can we downplay our feelings , control the importance that we allow that experience or are we just "hiding " our true reactions and feelings? That is probably my problem , No sense lying to ourselves but if we could "just work through them" somehow to a positive result . Yet , I have also been told I focus TOO much on the past ? Who knows for sure but us ,individually ? It's most important to each of us individually ,as to how we react . No?

      You hit the nail on the head with this one though , You are such a positive woman , thank you for this !........Ed
