    Everyone's In A Hurry To Go Nowhere And Comfortable In Their Discomfort

    Every human behind the steering wheel is exactly the same: they are in a hurry to go nowhere as fast as they can, and they are painfully comfortable in their extreme discomfort. I don't know about you, but that makes me extremely uncomfortable. I am someone who is very smart and...

    I have a pretty bad fear of driving,

    especially driving by myself. today was the second day in a row where I had to take my moms car to work. I got to work and back without getting into an accident, so I guess I'm doing good. just wish I could get rid of all my anxiety.

    Driving to me is so nerve wrecking. I can't stand it. I'm so afraid that I'm going to either cause an accident or get into an accident, I'll get hurt or paralyzed or kill somebody. I've never liked driving, but I never told that to any of my friends when we were all getting our...

    I don't like driving at the best of times. But as I freelance and visit several companies for my teaching I'm having to do more and more of it. One road is particularly bad as it is used more and more by lorries taking a short cut between two different towns. The road leads...

    I do, in fact, hold a strong animosity when it comes to driving. I’ve never once enjoyed being behind the wheel of a car in my life. It was my father who pursued that idea me getting my license, which I did eventually accomplish. Now, it’s nothing to with that fact I am a...

    I don't mind driving by myself

    but any time others are to be my passengers I get the worst anxiety, especially when I make a mistake. There's something about the combined responsibility and the stress of people thinking bad of me or judging my skills that makes me so adverse to the experience.

    I'd much rather be driven around or even take public transportation rather than drive myself. The traffic stresses me out, and I like to enjoy the surrounding scenery while in motion- that's kind of hard to do when you have to keep your eyes on the road.
