Share the story of your view points
The idea is to write about how your view points may have changed throughout your life, and under what circumstances. Not to question eachothers stand points or reasoning behind.
It can be for anything you wish to share, telling how you went from a vegetarian to become a devoted bear wrestler, or why your favorite colour is cyan.
My own is very short, but I think it'll be interesting to see how we each differ. Btw. there'll most likely be a lot of memory biased by your current view points in life, that's of course expected, and shouldn't hold you back.
I only recall the time from I was 2-3 years old, but I don't recall any view points in this time.
After I was introduced to video games, and thanks to living very fortunately, the first view point I recall about the world, was it was about having fun. Lots of fun. This was because for me, the only thing that made life better was having fun, ergo fun was the most meaningful goal of life.
Video games were the most entertaining thing I knew, so I'd focus my time on video games.
Later on, I changed view point. This happened gradually, and I don't know exactly when, but it was between I was 17 and now. A view point I still hold to this day, that the living is the most important thing. Without anyone alive, there's nothing. So to me, now, you're all important. My view of fun, now is it is just an emotion that can increase the probability of an action. Not something to stride for, but a tool to apply with caution.
Living time backwards
