Today is day 3 of #blogtober and it is all about car. Now what can I tell you about a car, well for some they are the centre of the universe and it is all about looking lovely with shiny wheels. Whereas others it is a mode of transport that gets you from A to B.
I am luckily in the fact that my other half can drive, though I have attempted many times in the past to learn but due to my social anxiety/autism, I breakdown when it comes to the test sadly or not. I seem to get more and more anxious driving in cars. I think because there seems to be more drivers about and some right arseholes who clearly are questionable ability to drive or their whole attitude in thinking they own the road. I don’t like confrontation and it frightens me because of the past experiences and I get scared as lets face it cars are machines that can kill you.
That being said I would say that it has been really beneficial when I have been in really stressful situations and don’t have the skills at the time to get home safely, that my husband can come and rescue me instead of me from having a major meltdown at that moment.
Cars do make life easier when there are children involved as it is calmer. It is less stressful (more so when they are young) to get to places and not have to deal with the filthy looks of others while your child is so tired they want the whole world to know about it. Not to mention saving your arms from burning with all the heavy shopping, though now it is much easier to use delivery services.
So, I suppose what I am trying to say is that cars have the good and the bad like anything but in the grand scheme of things it really doesn’t matter as long as you are healthy and happy.
