ann malloy Posted about 4 years ago When, How and Why have your most strongly held views changed? OK- Obviously change is generally an evolution. But if I were to pinpoint one moment that has profoundly changed me: When I was in my early 20s, I was super angsty about the state of the world. The injustice! I was involved in the "wrong crowd" although they were intelligent good people they were also depressed people who did a lot of drugs, and not a whole lot else. I was very unhappy myself. I was at work one day, I think I was 20 or 21, in a bad mood probably talking about how unfair the world is, as if I knew something about anything. And my boss said to me, "One way to make the world a better place is by taking care of yourself." I was stopped in my tracks. I guess that was the first time I realized I had control over things. I started to grow up that day.
