Many times in my life, I have been saved by the kind - or harsh - words of a friend. Sometimes they are the only thing that stop me from becoming an arrogant prick, others they lift me up from my depression and/or general misery.
I thought we might like to share with each other those occasions, when we've been changed by what people have said. Because sometimes, occasionally, things change because of what they say.
And I also think those people deserve the credit, but I understand if you want to protect their identity by changing names.
