How has a single experience changed your attitude forever?

I'm a strong believer that true attitude changes can only happen through experience. Some experiences are only a few seconds long, but hit you so hard you will never be the same again. These experiences can be near-death experiences, a brief conversation with a passing stranger, the loss or gain of a loved one, maybe you got fired or a customer rejected you, or even just reading a book. I would love to hear your experiences.

    Feb 11 2013: Doesn't the word "forever" mean it will remain unchanged in the future? I think it does so the answer must be "NO". How can I predict the future? The best I can say is many experiences have changed my attitude about many things.
