I've been through and have noticed lots of others going through big changes in their lives - stuff that can make you into a different person sort of overnight - they are amazingly different between when your 8 and when you are 25 but they still have lasting effects - which were your most memorable?

I still have my little moments of fear, but I seem to be able to come out fighting it. Now if I could just learn to ignore what gets me that way.

The biggest changes took place a long time ago...when i was a sweet lil girl with the most innocent look in the world( so my mom used to say lol). There was a period in my life when many people i loved( my grandparents, my grand grand mother, some very good friends of mine) died nearly in the same time. It was for the first time i felt the bitter taste of suffering and i can say it changed me for a lifetime...I still remember them and miss them and keep asking myself what's the use of death since it causes so much pain...

I remember a time like that too and then I came to a place where I decided it was my own way of looking at these things that was causing my pain - now, I revel in the achievements of the lives of people who die - that was possibly one of my growing up bits..........

A life defining moment (it really clicked in a single memorable moment) that changed everything for me was when I finally understood idea that my heart was more valuable than how well I "performed" for everyone (jumping through the hoops of life, ugh). doh Wish I'd of figured that out before I was 40...but better late than never, aye? cheering
