Then you realize fixed points in time are not really that fixed and its just a theory, so the world turns out like the doctor has seen it become.

The doctor has changed "fixed points" in time in the past (the waters of mars)

Well, yes and no. The Doctor can "sense" when he's in a fixed point in time. In the case of Waters of Mars he knew that the situation at hand was fixed. And most of the episode revolved around the idea of whether he should (or could) change it. However, while at the end he did we got some cop out ending wherein the fixed point was not the destruction of the Mars colony but rather the end of the Captain, which ended up happening anyway. He's never changed a fixed point. The only one that has changed a fixed point so far is River Song in the much disappointing "The Wedding of River Song" story that ended season 32.

well technically rose changed a fixed point in time when she saved her dad and all those reaper things came. But he killed himself to fix everything again so i guess she didnt. only thing i dont understand is why there are different reactions every time someone changes a fixed point in time

A fixed point in time basically means the event is going to happen one way or another. It doesn't matter HOW it happens, just that's it's GOING to happen.

well then technically river didnt change a fixed point in time then since in the end everything happened the way it was supposed

Well technically no because the fixed point in time was everyone thinking that The Doctor had died, not that he really died. So the fixed point was not his death, it was just everyone believing he was dead
