tijuana richardson Posted almost 3 years ago When, How and Why have your most strongly held views changed? I think that i've changed because of bad thing that have happened to me. I went through a divorce and it affected every aspect of my life, from my finances to how i trust others to political issues and the future of my children and their education. I was a sheltered chid and therefore a very naive adult. I had to make alot of mistakes before I learned, as a result i look at the cup as halp empty instead of half full. My experiences have taught me that.
