A Ridiculous ProblemIt's been three years since the occurrence that has made my psychological life a lot harder.
Three years ago I was driving around with some friends and other people in different cars that I didn't know. Kind of a car meet up thing. I accidentally caused one of the cars to hit another. I didn't know this at the time and drove away, later I was confronted by the driver who was going ballistic. The night ended and I went about my business. I felt terrible that I caused the accident. I still do even three years later.
The next day some of friends of the guy I made have an accident saw me driving and had me pull over to talk to them. They got my info and told me that the guy was expecting me to pay for what happened. I had never been in a situation like this and said I would. They took what little money I had on me and left.
After this I totally ignored their calls and it seemed to have worked for awhile. I hadn't seen or heard from them for months. Until one day I was coming out of work and noticed them waiting by my vehicle. I got into a coworkers car instead and they drove off. This really scared me. After that day I was so reluctant to get off work in fear that they'd be there waiting for me. Luckily, I hadn't seen or heard from any of them for about three whole years until tonight. I saw them waiting for me outside of my new job today and it has got me shaky all over again.
I really dont know what do, who to talk to, who needs to know. I havent told a soul about it. I just want to get this taken care of so I never had to be worried about it again. I know this isn't a big deal, but it's the only thing in my life that has me frightened when I go out. I hate it so much.
I'm really looking for advice on what I should do about this situation.
Thank you so much for reading this. The people that have read this are the only other people that know about this problem of mine. It feels good to get it out.
