    I've wrote two sentences, and I am looking for knowing are both true?

    I have two sentences:

    1) By having a good view you open yourself up both to new possibilities and to changes.

    2) By having a good view you open yourself up to both new possibilities and change.

    Now, the questions is whether these two are true.

    I don't know if they are true, but they are both grammatical. Your title should read "I've written two sentences..."

    I wonder if you might mean "outlook" instead of "view" -- or perhaps "view of life"?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    I meant 'point of view' or as you wrote 'outlook'.

    Please see above. I agree with bhai that both sentences are grammatically acceptable. Try to work on irregular past tenses and also check the difference between "true" and "correct". I'm not sure what you meant by "having a good view".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thanks! Yes, I must work so harder on my English language to eliminate my brooding mistakes.
