    A year ago from this day I almost killed my

    younger brother and my little cousin. Honestly, I wish I would have died in that crash. I don't deserve to be in anyone's life. This was a sign that just proved I'm unworthy to take care of other people, especially myself... ☹☹☹

    It was her fault and also mine.

    She just drove into my lane without turning on her signal. I didn't slow down because I assumed she would stop trying to get into the lane if she saw how close I was to her. In the end, my car was damaged, while hers had maybe a few scratches. The worst part is that my insurance...
