I am not sure how many of you all read my post in December, so let me briefly tell you all about it. Ever since I was a little girl, I have been afraid of EVERYTHING. One thing I feared the most was driving. I felt that I was never going to get my driver's license. I felt that by me not having the responsibility of driving, I was "decreasing my chances of dying" which is a pretty morbid way to think.
Well guess what?
I FINALLY GOT MY DRIVER'S LICENSE!
I am not a perfect driver, nor do I expect me to be right away. I have been driving for a few years, not long distances though. Just to a grocery store or something. But now that I can legally drive, I feel that I will completely overcome this fear. I wish I could say that I did this on my own, but it took counseling, advice, and talks with other people. I also received some help from a couple of you all. So thank you. If you're reading this and you know that you commented on my previous post, I want you to know that I took your advice and it helped me a lot.
Within these past few months, I learned that the way to get over your fear is to face it. I learned that I was never going to get a driver's license if I didn't even try. Whenever a friend would tell me I could borrow their car and I'd say "nah I don't feel like driving today" they knew that it was because I was afraid and they knew that I needed to drive especially when I was afraid so that I could realize that it really isn't a big deal.
If you are going through something similar, I want you to know that there is hope. There is hope in everything.
I also talked about moving 9 hours away from home. As time went by, I was getting more comfortable with the idea.
I am a quote person, and if you are too, I suggest you look some up and get motivated!
One of my favorite quotes is:
"Worrying is like walking with an umbrella waiting for it to rain."
I hope this blog has motivated you. You are not alone in this! YOU GOT THIS!
