People Share The Most Profound Thing Someone Said That Changed Their Life Forever.

1. You are glowing today, what did you do to yourself.

This made a world of difference for me.

Let me explain: I grew up in a country, where misogyny is still quite normalized. It affected some aspects of my being, like my relationship to self and how I am supposed to look. For example, since I started wearing make up in my teens I never left my house without wearing it.

I went to college in NY, and still one of the only times I left my house without make up occurred in my last finals ever the last year of school. I walked into the computer lab: no makeup, no sleep for 2 days. A friend of mine sees me and says that: You are glowing today, what did you do to yourself? I was so surprised, I though Ive never looked worse, but he was sincere and did not get my bewilderment by his comment.

That uncoupled make up and fancy outfits from looking good in my mind permanently and within a second. I stopped wearing makeup completely since that day. I always hated it, to be honest. And I feel confident about how I look all the time. It is a great feeling.

2. A few months back, I ended up in a huge fight with my college friends and at that moment I just thought that it's time to end this so called Friendship thing.

After the incident I was pissed off and that was when one of my good old pal came to rescue. I shared my whole experience with him and instead of correcting my facts or comforting me he just said one thing -

If someone did something wrong with you, look into the past and see how many times he has done something worth for you instead of directly jumping towards pure criticism."

These lines stunned me for a minute and thereafter it changed my mindset to a great extent. Now I am a lot calculative and understanding rather than being an emotional chunk.

3. "They're anti-depressants"

That's the answer I received from the pharmacist when I asked what medicine I was picking up for my mom.

Up until then I hadn't known my mother was depressed, so when I heard it, it hit me like a ton of bricks. After I picked up the medicine and was driving home, I started thinking to my self:

"Have I been a bad son?"

"Did I make things any easier for her?"

"Why didn't she tell me?"

"Is she ok?"

"I've been a bad son."

"I know I've been a bad son."

"She didn't have to go through it alone."

Then I started remembering the terrible things I've said to her and how I treated her over the years. Heck, I started remembering the attitude I gave her when I agreed to pick up her medicine. I felt horrible. I felt sick and disappointed in myself. She had done so much for me and my siblings and at the very least I could have been more kind, patient, and affectionate to her. I couldnt even do that for her.

Then I got home and (Continued)

gave her a massive hug and a kiss.

I've never forgotten the response the pharmacist gave me. I do the best I can to make her feel happy and loved. I call her everyday to see how she's doing and tell her how it's going with me. I don't shut her out. I tell her I love her at the end of every phone call and at every conversation.

Since the time I walked in the pharmacy, every time I see her, I give her the hug and kiss she deserves. She's my saint and I treat her as such.

4. She fancies herself a seamstress

An unsupportive ex boyfriend once said that about me at a time in my life, when I was transitioning over from working normal jobs in society to living my dreams. I had no formal education as a seamstress or designer, other than a sewing project in home economics way back in high school.

It inspired me to prove him wrong. I've since become a very well know and highly paid celebrity seamstress, designer and stylist despite my lack of education.

5. Not everything can fit into a box, Alice. Some things are just kinda gonna hang there perhaps never to be put away.

I think that's the first time I heard my shrink after being hospitalized for just over a month. I was always trying to keep all myself together by filing it into mini filing cabinets inside my head. Somewhere along the way I convinced myself that if I filed it, it was dealt with and the proverbial key could be thrown away never needing to open up the file again.

Problem was at some point things weren't fitting in their cabinets anymore. No matter how hard I tried to jam them in there, they weren't having it, which to me was an impossibility yet it was occurring increasing in frequency. This was the start of my decent into madness.

Until he said that It never occurred to me that it's ok to just let it be, to just let things unfold as they should, to let them hang without knowing where they were going or forcing them to go where I wanted them to go. Not only was it ok it was one of the joys of being human and really living in harmony with the rest of the planet.

I remember how terrified the concept of letting it be felt it but it pales in comparison to the feeling of freedom and massive sense of relief I felt at the same time. The life I was living had me filing almost every minute of every day for over 10 years. That was the beginning of my ascend into peace.

6. I had a room full of a dozen or so people not say anything, and it changed the course of my life.

I was working as a ground support mechanic for the US Air Force, and the particular group was my classmates. We were in technical training for some of the most advanced stuff we might encounter. It was called 7-level school, and it is the highest level of technical training the AF offers enlisted soldiers; after that its just management. We had just received a safety briefing about motorcycles because some unfortunate airman had smashed into a guardrail and launched himself a significant distance. One of my classmates idly asked, How fast would you have to be going to fly that far? I though he might want an answer, so I got out a pencil and paper and started working it out. (Continued)

I was having trouble remembering the trig identity I needed to derive the formula, so I looked up to think it over. Everyone else in the room was staring at me like I had grown an extra head. I never did figure out the answer, but the fact that I was the only one in the room to realize it was a math problem got me thinking about my abilities. A couple years later I went to College intending to be a math teacher, but some of my professors and other students encouraged me to go further than that. Now I have completed a significant amount of graduate level mathematics, and a job that I wouldnt have without that education.

7. A counselor (speaking in reference to one of my kids, who was going through a turbulent adolescent phase):

Choose your battles. There are some battles you cannot winmusic taste, choice of friends, etc. There are some battles you MUST win-for example, illegal activities. And there are some that can go either way.

This is excellent advice for any parent, of course, but its also good advice for life in general. In fact, its pretty much a variation on the Serenity Prayer, or the popular meme Dont sweat the small stuff.

8. Excuse me, sir. Could you show me to the bathroom. - a college kid said this to me. He was on a summer internship at my company and came into my office looking for the bathroom. Sounds pretty innocent, right?

Well I was 25, graduated from college about 3 years before. I still thought I had that college swag; like I could be one of his peers. But he referred to me as sir.

Reality kicks in when you least expect it. Sometimes in the most mortifying ways.

Ku-Wayne Hart

9. Let the man through. -a random woman to her daughter, referring to me, when I was 17.

It was the first time someone referred to me as a man without irony or pre-phrasing it with the words young or little. Guess I suddenly realized I wasn't a kid anymore.

Jake Williams

10. You should have kept your job.

I was working for a dream company. I didnt communicate well with my boss. I ended up losing the job. My wife said it was my fault and that I should have (Continued)

done whatever it took to keep it. The boss had some kind of personal problem with me on top of the other trouble, but you know what? She was right. My pride and incompetence cost me that job. It hurt and made me angry to hear her speak that truth.

I went on to start my own company and earn millions, but I still feel like I screwed up.

Tom Campbell

11. The moment, when I was 12 years old, that a boy in my class said to me, "You're smart for a Black girl." Until that moment I hadn't experienced much racism, or at least hadn't noticed it. I couldn't understand why I felt so annoyed back then, but went home from school and lay in bed the rest of the afternoon to cry about it. It really made me understand how a lot of people perceive non-white people according to stereotypes. I began to think about why this might be a lack of representation of people of color in positions of power in many jobs, stereotypes in the media, and the way reporting has a racially bias slant. Right now I'm conducting research on internalized prejudice in the hiring process. My life was changed, all because someone gave me a back-handed compliment that opened my eyes to the world's injustice and my involvement in it.


12. "I'll give you a dollar if you grab me a chocolate bar."

My older brother asked me to get him a chocolate bar one day. Sure, I thought, I didn't have much else to do. On my way to the store I fell and scraped my knee. A guy about my age helped me up and stayed with me until it stopped bleeding. We got to chatting and found out we had a lot in common. We became best friends, and eventually started dating. Been married 4 years now, all because my brother wanted an O'Henry.


13. Just a friendly tip. It's obvious to me what's going on back there (pointing to the room behind me). If Im seeing it you can be sure others are as well.- A Corporal with the police department

She told me to stay as far away from you as possible because Klugman is about to be in for the surprise of his life!- the live-in boyfriend of the countys First Responders dispatcher who couldn't have possibly known my last name.

Both happened within a week of each other and were in regards to the illegal drug activity I was conducting in the back room of an auto parts store I was managing at the time. Then, I did something I thought I'd never do. (Continued)

I became clean and sober the next day, May 20th, 1989.

14. If you have something wrong with everyone, maybe something is wrong with you.

15. Actually I over heard someone refer to me during a conversation.

Frends father : Even X scored better than you (referring to me)

I realized that being poor meant I am not supposed to score better than the rich kids in my school. From that day on I was determined to prove everyone wrong. Just last month, that old schoolmate came in for an interview at my company... to be my assistant.

16. When I was 38 I contemplated beginning a two year Associates Degree in Radiography. I was talking to a friend and had almost talked myself out of doing it. I said "I'm too old to start that. I'll be 40 when I get my degree." My friend said "If you don't do it, you'll still be 40, but without the degree." I'm nearly 60 now, and (Continued)

that degree has been the difference between making a decent living, and struggling to get by.


17. When I was young and having what I thought was a serious relationship talk with my first real SO, I told her that I just wanted to find the right person.

Without missing a beat she said, "Everybody is looking for the right person, and nobody is trying to be the right person."

That stopped me in my tracks.


18. My mom was dying. A friend told me "you have your whole life to freak out about this-- don't do it in front of her. "

It really helped me to understand that my feelings are not always what's important. It IS possible to delay a freakout, and that skill has served me innumerable times.


19. "It's only embarrassing if you're embarrassed." Changed my life forever.


20. I met a person who was in a wheelchair. He related a story about how a person once asked if it was difficult to be confined to a wheelchair. He responded, "I'm not confined to my wheelchair - I am liberated by it. If it wasn't for my wheelchair, I would be bed-bound and never able to leave my room or house. "

Amazing perspective.


21. I'm the oldest of three kids. I'm older than my little brother by 2.5 years and my little sister by 9.5.

When I was about fourteen or so, arguing with my dad in private about something I don't remember, he, being the second-oldest of eight kids, told me: (Continued)

Continue reading on the next page!

"Any decision you make in this household, you make three times. Once when you make it, once when your brother makes the same decision after watching you do it, and once when your sister makes the same decision after watching you and your brother do it. How you treat your brother will tell him how he can treat your sister; and how you treat your sister tells her how she will expect to be treated for the rest of her life, even as far as her future boyfriends."

That kinda shook me up and made me rethink my role as the oldest child; I started taking my responsibilities as the role model a lot more seriously after that. Even when you aren't trying to actively influence those around you, those who look up to and respect you will still base their decisions, in part, on how they've seen you handle similar situations. If you break down and get stressed and angry when something inconvenient happens, they'll feel better doing the same when something similarly small happens to them. But if you keep your cool in a dire situation and under a lot of stress, it can inspire them to believe they can do the same.


22. "Think of a time you were embarrassed, easy right? Now think of a time someone else was embarrassed. It's a lot harder to do isn't it?" I don't really worry about being embarrassed anymore if no one but I will remember it!


23. My old boss, the CEO of a small hospital, told me a story from back when he was a lab technician (for simplicity, let's call him Dan). Dan had forgotten to check some sort of mechanism on a piece of equipment he used, it malfunctioned and broke the equipment which ended up having around a $250,000 repair bill.

The next day Dan's boss called him in to talk about it, and he was sure he was going to be fired. His boss asked him why he didn't do a proper check, made sure he understood what happened and sent him back to work. Dan asked him "Am I not getting fired? I was almost sure that's what this was about." His boss said "No way, I just spent $250,000 teaching you a lesson you'll never forget. Why would I fire you now?"

It seems silly, but that attitude always resonated with me. Don't make professional decisions based on emotional responses. Always know what your goal is when dealing with someone, and what exact problem you are trying to solve. Everyone makes mistakes, and yelling at them just makes them resent you and become defensive. Being calm and understanding will make people look up to you.


People Describe The Most Historically Significant Event They've Ever Witnessed In Person

Reddit user FictionVent asked: 'What is the most historically significant event you witnessed IN PERSON?'

Do you ever wonder what it must've been like to experience major events throughout world history when reading about them in text books?

But if you take pause and actually think about it, we're living through many newsworthy current events that succeeding generations will be talking about long after we're gone.

Reading about them online or in newspapers is one thing. But seeing them happen unfold before our eyes is another.

Curious to hear from those who'll have anecdotes to tell in the future, Redditor FictionVent asked:
"What is the most historically significant event you witnessed IN PERSON?"

People recall the natural disaster events they've witnessed.


"1964 Good Friday Earthquake 9.2 Richter. Was a boy in Cordova, Alaska at the time."

– KitchenLab2536

"My father was skipper of the USCG cutter stationed there. He was inport, and when the quake struck shortly before 5:30pm, he and my mom gathered me and my three siblings on the front porch. At first, it felt like the house was crumbling at the foundation, but on the porch we could plainly see our whole world was shaking. I remember watching telephone poles swaying, and the wires snapping and crackling in the street. The quake lasted about five minutes initially. My dad got his ship underway to avoid the tidal wave which was sure to come. We had several aftershocks in the coming weeks, some of which were quite strong, though nowhere near as strong or as long as the quake itself. I was seven at the time."

– KitchenLab2536

Collapsing Freeway

"October 17th, 1989. I watched the 880 Nimitz freeway collapse during the San Francisco earthquake. The Honda in front of me had the upper deck crush her front-end engine compartment. The mother and her daughter were shaken up but completely fine."

"I was driving a convertible Triumph Spitfire, which was scratched up slightly from debris. However, I walked away unscathed. Aside from the fact I pissed my pants, which I didn't notice until much later."

– CatDaddyWhisper

Thar She Blows

"I sat on the roof of our house and watched Mt. St. Helens erupt less than 100 miles away."

– stinkykitty71

"This must have been fascinating and terryfing in equal measure. What a thing to witness."

– runrossyrun

"It was amazing! The ash that covered everything like snow was interesting to kid me, but less so to my parents."

– stinkykitty71

People recall seeing major catastrophes as a result of malfunctions or judgement errors.

Bomber Crash

"The b-52 crash that led to changing what large military aircraft are allowed to do for airshows."

"I didn't see the plane, but immediately saw the fireball. It was just a perfect, bright red turning to black mushroom cloud."

"Fairchild is a nuclear air base and there were a few minutes there where I was sure the world was about to end."

"A few years before a KC-135 doing the same thing crashed near the school while we were in class."

– goffstock

Tragic Takeoff

"I was standing on my front porch watching the launch of the Challenger."

– StarChaser_Tyger

"Was riding in my parents car to a basketball game in the next town over in north texas when we saw a shooting star and thought that was neat."

"It was the Columbia..."

– Misdirected_Colors

Demolition Gone Wrong

"The failed implosion of the Zip feed mill in Sioux Falls, SD in 2005."

"They hyped it up, sold tickets to it, had a big 'BOOM' marketing thing, and broadcast it live on TV."

"The explosives took out the main supports on the first floor, and the rest of the building above it just plopped down 10ft or so and came to a rest. It was a massive failure, and was a funny little blurb on news stations around the world that day. Definitely not major news, just the rest of the world taking 20 seconds to laugh at us."

"The building sat like that (the leaning tower of SuFu) for quite a while until they figured out how to safely demolish it."

"Here's a clip of the failed demolition."

– KitchenBandicoots

These well-known historical events were seen by very few who are alive today.

Historical Remnant

"The tumbling of the Wall in Germany… along with people selling bits and pieces of it on tables in lobby in front of commissary and px in the following weeks and months. I had picked up a chunk about the size of an oreo and kept it… has blue spray paint on the flat side. Wonder if anyone is buying them now?"

– SingedPenguin13

Major Upheaval

"I would have to say the LA riots. I lived about two blocks from where it started. I was on my way home from school and saw someone throw a brick through a window. I didn’t even wait. I just started running the whole way home."

– Scarlaymama0721

Day Of Infamy

"9/11, I could SMELL the collapse of the towers."

– go4tli

"A friend of mine was there. One day in the warehouse we worked in together there was an odd electrical burning smell. He stopped in his tracks and went 'this is what 9/11 smelled like.'"

– mantistoboggan287

I didn't physically witness the fall of the World Trade Center but I was living in New York City at the time.

However, I did see the smoke.

I was living up north in Washington Heights at the time and knowing what happened, uncertain of what was to come, and seeing the plumes of smoke from the attack site was the most ominous sight I've ever seen in my life to date.

Have you ever lived through a historic moment or witnessed something sure to be noted in history books? Let us know in the comments below.

A job search is not fun, so most people will tolerate a lot to keep a job.

But everyone has their limit.

Sometimes that limit is reached right in the middle of a work day and people are forced to walk off the job with no prior notice.

Many weddings involve months of planning and thousands of dollars.

But the one guarantee in life is that poo happens and weddings are not immune to sh*t storms.

Natural disasters, unexpected illnesses, accidents or animosity can derail even the best laid wedding plans.

When I was in seventh grade, I had aspirations to be a poet. I made a Mother's Day card for my mom with a cute (but now, cringe-worthy) poem inside, and a hand-drawn picture of a rose that took me hours to perfect.

A friend saw the card and said they wished they could do the same. Then suddenly, she asked if she could buy the card from me. I said no, since I needed to give it to my own mother, but I said I could make her a copy. From there, my friend got the idea for me to make copies of the card to sell. I went along with it, mostly because I didn't think it would actually work.

Turns out, it did. After making sure people would actually be interested, we went to the library after school and made several color copies of my card for 10 cents each. The next day, we sold each card for $1. Not only did we make enough money so that my friend and I could both afford to get our moms an actual present in addition to the card, but we had enough leftover to put us over the top for the money we needed to buy the matching faux leather jackets we'd been wanting all year.

The next year, many people who bought cards asked me to do it again, so I did. Once again, we made a killing. We didn't try to do it again once we got to high school, but it was definitely fun while it lasted.

When we tell people this story, they think it's a pretty crazy money-making scheme. Maybe it is, but we're not the only ones who ever did anything like this. Redditors know all about crazy money-making schemes, and are eager to share their own stories.

It all started when Redditor primeiro23 asked:

"What are the craziest ways you’ve heard of people making money?"

Tumble Into Business

"In college, I take a class on how to start & run a small business. Prof tells us to think of ridiculous business models for our fictitious businesses as we will get more out of the class that way. Stupid ideas ensue. Selling paperclips door to door, refilling car gasoline tanks in people's driveways, service to read & summarize the newspaper to executives etc."

"One classmate decides he is going to sell tumbleweed."

"Guess who quits college and started a successful business? Tumbleweed guy. Takes a van to the desert, collects tumbleweed and sells them to Hollywood movie & TV studios who need them. Keeps the tumbleweed in a warehouse and since they never spoil, his only costs are gasoline, storage & a website. He eventually becomes the number one tumbleweed provider to studios around the world, shipping tumbleweed globally."

"Made a heap of money selling what millions of people drive by and ignore every year."

– Accomplished-Fig745


"I did have a job reading and summarizing newspaper articles to the boss. Literally only task I was hired for."

– Draigdwi

"An actual union job in the film industry is reading scripts and summarizing them in short mean book reports."

– Trixiebees


"Heard of crazier, but a guy I know, friend of my mother's, went to Texas 30+ years ago. (we are from Norway), and he noticed every single garden had a trampoline. And it was almost always "jump king" - the circular with blue mat ones."

"So he went to the HQ, bought 10 and took back to Norway. Within days they were sold, and he ordered 50 more, same thing. So he became the only importer and has God knows how many millions to his name today."

– alexdaland

"This IS wild. I went to Norway recently and one of the first things I noticed was that almost EVERY yard had a trampoline in it."

– TrulyMadlyCheaply

Working For A Home

"Back when Dogecoin took off I wrote a guide on recovering old lost wallets and it got so popular I was flooded with requests for further help. Some corrupted wallet files, some lost passwords, etc."

"I have a background in computer science and experience in data retrieval and password cracking, so I started helping people in exchange for a percentage cut (industry standard for wallet recovery). All above board with a contract and everything."

"For a while I was getting new clients every week and making hundreds up to thousands of dollars on every successful recovery (with a fairly good rate of success). The biggest one I ever recovered was a 19 letter long password someone had lost. The work dried up when the price of doge dropped but it got me the down-payment on a house."

– internetpillows

Horsing Around

"A cabbie in Dublin once told me a story about one of his fares who had a brilliant hustle."

"The guy was a sculptor. He would watch horse races, then when a horse won, he'd use social media to contact the owner directly with a digital mockup of a life-sized sculpture of the winning horse. Now, the people who own winning racehorses tend to be very rich - we're talking sheikhs, oligarchs, billionaires. Every now and again, one of these owners would bite, and spend €100,000 euros or so on a statue commemorating their animal's win."

"Dude only did a couple a year, and spent the rest of the time living the good life."

– escoterica


"Richest guy in a rich town near us makes enormous amounts of money buying Hershey bars and rewrapping them with customised retirement celebration designs or corporate logos to be given away at events. Literally just rewraps them in pieces of paper and doubles or triples his money."

"Every time I try to start a company or invent a better product or something, I ask myself why I’m not just rewrapping candy bars."

– perchance2cream

"F**k man, I think I found my new niche."

– LibertyPrimeIsASage

Slightly Used

"I went to college in a capitol C college town. A friend of mine bought an old school bus, fixed it up and took out all the seats."

"At the end of every semester she would drive around the neighborhood that was the fancier side of off campus living and collect whatever the rich kids were throwing out before they moved / went home for the summer. Flat screen TVs, couches, computers, tables, it was wild to see what people would chuck out and replace the next semester rather than having to deal with getting a storage unit or moving themselves."

"Sold it all on Craigslist over the summer or the beginning of the next semester and made a killing."

– sam_neil

Credit Where Credit Is Undue

"When I worked in a really busy, upscale restaurant my coworker would put all of his cash-paying customer’s bills on his credit card and keep the cash which he used to promptly pay off his credit card."

"He did this all day, every day for quite a while and the points started to add up and he was getting free airfare, etc."

"Worked great for a while until management notice a rise in credit card processing fees with an emphasis on one employee and they shut him down real quick."

– blinkysmurf

We Found Gold!

"My buddy worked his way through college by panning for gold. This was in 2009 in California. Most days he made nothing, occasionally he would come home with a couple hundred bucks worth and I think once he found a night worth over $1k."

– discostud1515

"My cousin had a metal detector when he was in HS. He would go every weekend down to the lake and take it with him on vacation. He found all kinds of things. He did find gold jewelry and would sell it online. He made so much money he bought his own car."

– Content_Pool_1391

Sleeping For The Job

"I knew a woman whose job was literally to sleep."

"A local office building owner wanted somebody on-site 24/7 to be the point of contact with first responders if they ever needed to be called. So they hired her to come in to the building in the evening when the maintenance crew was finishing their work. And she would settle up to sleep for the night in a bedroom they'd set aside for her. In the morning she'd hand the building back over to the office employees and go on about her day."

"No first responders were ever called. It's about the least stressful legitimate job I could ever imagine."

– CaptainTime5556

The Secret

"Back in the 90s, I knew a guy who put an ad in the classified section of the newspaper which read something along the lines of, “For $10, I’ll tell you my secret to making easy money. Send $10 cash to (address) to find out how.” People would send him $10 & he would then instruct them to put a classified ad in the newspaper telling people to send $10 & how to make money."

– freudianfalls

Accident Payment

"I was pushed down the stairs by a teen girl who told me to "pay attention and get out of her way" i ripped my dress during the fall and was getting back up when some guy rushed up to me, apologized for his daughter and handed me $500 as compensation."

– thebrilliantcounc

"LOL - years back, I was in a parking lot during a snowstorm. A guy was trying to pull around me, slid on the snow/ice and hit into my passenger side door. It really and truly was an accident. He was all apologies. We exchanged info - he said to get a quote and he would pay for the damage."

"Well, the car I was driving at the time was a crappy old Ford worth maybe $500. But, I went to a body shop, got a quote on the repair and it was $900. I faxed it to him (this was back in the 90's, LOL) thinking he'd tell me to go through the insurance company and just have the car totaled out."

"To my surprise, I had a bank check for $900 from him in my mailbox three days later. Now, I already owned another car, so I pocketed the $900, sold the smashed car for parts for $300 and ended up with $1200 on a car that was worth only $500 before the accident. I was very glad that he ran into me!"

– Deleted User

Only Feet

"I have a friend who sells pictures of her feet. In heels. Barefoot squishing cake. In mud. She charges extra for special requests. Has strict ‘no go’ rules. Never shows anything above the calf so she can’t be identified (no tats). All proceeds go to her kid’s college fund. Has made enough to fund a PhD."

– NotACrazyCatLadyx2

The things people do for money! But, I guess it works for her!
