Quotes That Changed People's Perspectives

There are many times that people say things to us, or give us some words of wisdom, that totally change the way we feel about ourselves and the world around us. Sometimes, we need a good piece of advice to change our perspective and give us a different view of our lives and our problems. Many of these quotes stay with us forever.

Recently, Reddit users began sharing the quotes that permanently changed the way they look at things and some of them are too good not to share.

This one stands out.

Reddit user Howdydobe shared the quote "If you wouldn't take advice from them, why would you take criticism?"

"From some dude on youtube. I just never thought of it that way before, and I stopped spending so much energy trying to get people to like me," they added.

Better than "cup of tea."

"Don't set yourself on fire to keep others warm."

Others began to agree that it saved them, too.

"Yes! This changed my life when I first heard it. It had literally never occurred to me to not sacrifice everything I was at all times for everyone. I had just been raised that way, and it's an entirely toxic way to live," ForgottenUsername3 said.
