Felipe,
Life experiences will definitely change your perspective. Allison gave a really good example of how we change our perspectives as we experience more of life. These changes are what make us grow as a person.
The key to all of this is to have an open mind when trying something new. At first, trying something new can leave you feeling uncomfortable but challenge yourself to see it through. Then reflect on what you learned from the experience. For me, I was afraid of public speaking because I did not like having all of the audience's eyes on me. After my first small presentation I gave, people had different feedback but most of it was positive. That started changing my view of me as a public speaker. Before long I was able to present to larger groups without being nervous.

Allison’s Answer

Our experiences shape our lives, our assumptions, and our perspectives. As we get older and experience more, our way of viewing the world around us will most likely change. I know it is cliche, but change is the only constant in the universe. Think about it, as a kid I thought eating dirt was a good idea, as a teenager I thought being 25 meant you were ancient, and as a college student I thought I knew everything. Now that I'm past 25, I don't feel ancient, don't eat dirt, and know I don't know everything. As you get older, different things will make you happy, sad, excited, nervous, or stressed out than when you were younger. It just means you are experiencing life and changing as you get older. There is nothing wrong with change. Without it, life would get boring.

For me, Felipe, I found that things changed and also didn't change. I like and value the same things I did, but I have come up with different ways of approaching that over time. So - I would encourage you to try things out and see what you like, and be open to changing your mind as you go. It can be scary, but is the best way to learn and grow.
