Default Something that changed you

Has something that you ever read, or heard, or watched ever changed the way you thought about things in life. Back in '82 I was really going thru a rough time. I was 15, family life wasn't all it could have, or should have been. Started doing things I shouldn't have...Anyway, one night I was listening to the radio, and the new Kinks album was out, called "Give the People What They Want." I've always been a big fan of The Kinks, and the DJ, Michael Tearson, on WMMR in Philly, played a song called "Better Things." When the song was over, I was literally in tears. Ray Davies, if you only KNEW how much you changed me that night. I'm forever in your debt. Here are the lyrics, but don't just read them, try and listen to the song too.

"Better Things"

Here's wishing you the bluest sky,
And hoping something better comes tomorrow.
Hoping all the verses rhyme,
And the very best of choruses to
Follow all the doubt and sadness.
I know that better things are on the way.

Here's hoping all the days ahead
Won't be as bitter as the ones behind you.
Be an optimist instead,
And somehow happiness will find you.
Forget what happened yesterday,
I know that better things are on the way.

It's really good to see you rocking out
And having fun,
Living like you just begun.
Accept your life and what it brings.
I hope tomorrow you'll find better things.
I know tomorrow you'll find better things.

Here's wishing you the bluest sky,
And hoping something better comes tomorrow.
Hoping all the verses rhyme,
And the very best of choruses to
Follow all the drudge and sadness.
I know that better things are on the way.

I know you've got a lot of good things happening up ahead.
The past is gone it's all been said.
So here's to what the future brings,
I know tomorrow you'll find better things.
I know tomorrow you'll find better things.

Randomly buying a copy of the SPIN Alternative Record Guide in a bookstore when I was thirteen years old. I spent the next five years buying as many of its recommendations as I could, which changed my cultural life, and thereby my social life, definitively.

something that was truly life altering to me was when i realized that no matter how thin, or how fat i was, there was always someone that would think i was never right, or someone who conversely would believe i was perfect...

I can relate on a level, but it has nothing to do with my body. This was back in the early 80's, again, at home. No matter what I did, it was never, EVER good enough for my parents. I have 2 sisters, I'm the only boy. My sisters, or "the princesses" as I call them, could do no wrong. I'm the oldest...the only boy. Don't know what I did to fuck things up, but they certainly were fucked up.

Then I started to get fucked up to get away from the things that were fucked up, and that fucked things up even more. And the more fucked up I got, the more fucked up things became. And it could have gotten even more fucked up, had I not heard the song that started this thread. The words of the song made me think, that I could HOPE for something better, and it just might, by the grace of God come along. Thankfully, it did. Here's wishing you the bluest sky...

Going back for my second bachelor's degree changed my life. Up until that point, I would say that I went for a career that my mother wanted. I'm the youngest, and she wanted me to be the first of her four children to graduate from college. The first to really do something "spectacular" with their life. When I up and decided back in 2001 that I was miserable stuck in a hospital lab day in and day out, I went back to school for a degree in English...something I've always had a passion for.

I started back in the spring of 2002, part-time, taking a class here and there. But it was during those years of taking writing and literature courses, that I discovered a true passion for my Native American background, which lead me to have a fellowship at the National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, DC. I love learning about different cultures, but especially those of my own heritage.

I thought the worst time in my life was when my father would put me down for being fat. I was in Jr. high and I had a selfish, verbally abusive, drunk father. I thought no man could ever love me for who I was.
Then my son was born in 2003. I felt so complete within myself. Finally, I have a male in my life who loves me even if I weigh 245.
Then in 2006 , he had brain surgery. The worst time in life in Jr. High became nothing to me. I have mentioned this already but this is what changed my life forever. He is doing very well. He has recovered wonderfully. I thank God for giving the love of my life back to me. I tell him I love him every chance I get. I give him lots of hugs too. I have started to heal within my heart slowly. But sometimes I still cry. (Especially the last time he had an MRI.) He is only 3 years old.

Returning to a different college after a two year hiatus. Being homebound, watching the world from windows, I was stuck in stasis. The college I started and part of the reason I dropped out was attached with too many bad memories. People I couldn't stand in high school attended and it was "13th grade" for me.

Attending a school in Manhattan with a variety of people, many who had to work hard to attend school, they didn't have silver spoons in their mouths made me recognize although I don't come from a wealthy background, I'm lucky to have some degree of support from my family. It also exposed me to the actual world and made me get out a few days a week. Now I have my degree and in a better place mentally. I'm glad I went back to college at 21, It helped me regain my life and gave me a sense of purpose that nothing previously else had done so.

In high school I was a closeted FA -- partly because I went to a tiny suburban high school where there were literally no BBWs for me to date, but also because I had the typical teenage-boy worries about what people would think of me if they knew I had a weird sexual preference.

In college I made a lot of friends who were openly gay. One night, as I was walking back from dinner with one of them, a car full of drunk meatheads leaned their heads out the window and screamed "FAGGOT!" at him.

That incident set me on the road to becoming an out-and-proud FA, because it made me realize that some people have to put up with serious oppression, discrimination, threats of violence etc. if they want to be open about their sexuality -- so what the hell did I have to complain about? That some jackass might snicker at me behind my back because I'm with a fat chick? That's nothing compared to what some of my friends have had to go through.

I was in bed one night. It was probably near midnight and I was in 8th grade. I had my headphones on and my walkman tuned to some station I could only just hear above the fuzz. Depeche Mode came on and I knew I'd never be the same. I've never been and am still not a huge Depeche Mode fan, but they opened my eyes to what's out there and to the fact that I could expect quality from the music to which I chose to listen.

Great story! My own revelatory radio moment was Black Sabbath's "Iron Man." I still don't quite believe that some twelve-year-old nerdboys didn't have their minds blown by that song.

Watching my mother take her last breath changed me profoundly. In the five years following her death, I finished up my bachelor's degree, got a divorce, bought a house, and changed jobs, among many other things. Amazing how watching someone you love die can be an affirmation of life.

I have not had a lot of big things, maybe a collection of small things. But a few things that stand out"

A few years back I read the book "The First 5 People You Meet in Heaven". It really made me think that sometimes we affect people in ways that we never know, even people we never met. It made me think a lot of being a better person. Basically if you throw good things out into the world, you could make the world better for many people. But if you throw bad things out into the world, you could make the world miserable for many people.

My dad's death also. My mom had died the year before. Once my dad died, I knew I had to totally grow up, since I had no parent anymore to run home and be kid to. ... sometimes when things get all screwed up, I still want me mommy and daddy to come and rescue me.

Dimensions changed how I feel about myself. All my life, I was led to believe that being fat was bad and unattractive. I never knew that there were people out in the world that had a different view of fat, until I stumbled on the Dimenions boards while looking for plus-sized clothing. I still struggle with how the majority of the world views fat people, but I am slowly become a confident fat woman and I no longer feel unattactive. Thanks Conrad and all you Dimmers!

BloodSugarSexMagik by the Red Hot Chili Peppers

This album came out in late '91 but I only really bought it a year later, at the start of the last summer before my final year in high school (after seeing the Pepper's 'Funky Monks' documentary of the making of this album).

I had always loved music but this album's fluid combination of kick-ass funk-rock and explicitly sexy lyrics came just at the right time. It reinvigorated me back into music. I picked up a guitar for the first time and began to teach myself to play only after hearing this album. I began buying CD's from all genre's in what would eventually become quite an extensive CD album collection.

The music had a whole attitude which I could really identify with and I began unconforming to many everyday things - from the clothes I wore in my final year at school (wild, baby, wild...) to the friends I had. I didn't have to fit in at all with anybody or anything.

It was the right album in the right time at the right place.

I had an Afro-Ethnic Studies instructor who said that people do have differences, there’s nothing wrong with that. As humans though, we actually have a lot more in common than we have differences. Look for the commonalities, they will be there, that’s how you will be able to relate to someone different than you.

Also, my dad's death changed me (dad by adoption...). The way he bravely faced it, how (during the last few weeks of his life) he decided to lay all of his philandering to rest, how a lifetime of transgressions no longer meant anything, and how, in an instant, all of the precious little possessions which he jealously guarded all of his life were worth nothing. I gave the man who had been in my life forever a kiss on his cold forehead, said goodbye to him forever and watched the mortuary people haul his stiff body away. In some ways I have a better understanding of him now, that I wished I had when he was alive.

"The Holy Bible" by Manic Street Preachers changed my life during my teenage years. I still can't listen to it without feeling immensely moved.

Joining a bagpipe band has changed my life. I learned a new instrument, performed in at a bunch of different venues and Ive met some pretty amazing and talented people. Some of those people are now very close friends of mine. I love going to practice every week cause our drum corp totally rocks and we have so much fun.

plus i get to see lots of guys in kilts.

This, also, is one thing that has changed me forever, and for which I am truly grateful. Although I may not have completed a single season, or spent as much time in the group as I would have hoped, it opened my eyes to giving my all in everything that I do. Even when I feel that I am going in the wrong direction, a few certain shows, DVD's, or speeches about how great Drum & Bugle Corps is (and was) can really, really brighten my day.

I have very, very recently had the opportunity to hear something that has really twisted my soul a tad, but definately in a good way. I would have never thought it would have had an affect on me, but I suppose the way it was done, or the result that came about, possibly even the time I found out, was just perfect to me. Thumbs up all the way, Classified.
