When?

Some parts of life happen on a schedule, but other milestones can come as a surprise--from your first word to your first funeral.  Occasionally, the time that something happened to you becomes important to how you perceive it.  Consider writing moments of perspective changes based upon time:

  • How did you perceive the birth of a child after losing/not having one of your own?
  • How did you perceive someone else's success after a failure of your own or someone else's failure after a success of your own?
  • When did you enter puberty compared to other kids, and how did that change your outlook on things?
  • When did you move out on your own for the first time?
As in all stories about changes in perspectives, make sure to start your story before the shift took place or we will never understand the magnitude of the change in you.
