My mom telling others I was converting to Mormonism without ever discussing it with me. That was the catalyst that made me question what I really believed and eventually came to terms realizing I didn't believe.

Pardon the nosiness, but how old were you?

Yeah, by that age you question stuff around you more than you blindly believe.

For me, I'd say having kids. Changed my plans, my goals, my priorities. Forced me to adjust my temperament, gave me a new filters through which to observe my surroundings and new ways to process information. It has definitely made me more flexible and more sympathetic to circumstances different from my own. I'd never really pictured myself as a parent, so having kids almost feels like having jumped to an alternate timeline...

negative experience that changed me: my parents' divorce while I was attending high school

positive experience that changed me: living on my own, without a boyfriend, or parent, or inlaws...(I've experienced all those three, too)
