Tell us what you’ve changed your mind most about.

What is the biggest thing you’ve changed? Regular readers will know that we ask this question to all the well-known people who participate in our “Life lessons” series. Over the years, we’ve received some interesting responses.

Charlotte Church, a Welsh singer , recently gave a candid, thoughtful response. “Probably the trans stuff,” Charlotte Church told us. “I never was a terf but I was very protective of the female experience when I was pregnant with our third child. After listening to trans people speak, I realized that I was acting like there was no room. There’s plenty of space and these people are marginalised. Why on earth would i contribute to anything that will make their lives harder?”

Eden project founder Sir Tim Smit also softened his outlook. He said , “The biggest thing I’ve changed in my life is that the majority of people are out to get me.” “We paint a picture that every neighbourhood is a place of fear. It’s not. “Most people are kind. The 5% that aren’t usually have had something happen to them which has messed them up.”

Isabella Tree’s change of heart led her to launch the UK rewilding movement. “The biggest thing I’ve learned in life is how to live with nature, even in a state that we used to call chaos,” she said. “I grew on the picture postcard version our British landscapes, with neat fields, canalised river and isolated pockets, and thought that this was beautiful. Now I understand that it can’t look beautiful if it doesn’t work.

We are now asking the same question of you, our readers. We want to hear about the biggest thing you changed your mind on and how it affected your life. We will not be able publish all the answers, but read them. To take part, fill out the form below.
