How a person drives can be an indication of what’s going on behind the scenes.
I’m not quite sure why it manifests while driving a vehicle in traffic, but some of us can use these moments to justify their anger and then direct it at others. Even though I’m not proud of it – I do it. What’s the rub?
Sometimes I find myself at a 4-way stop sign verbally giving commands on who should go next and waving my hands while alone in my car.
I do find that when I’m in a giving and loving place with myself, I tend to drive the same way. I allow people to change lanes in front of me, give them space to pull out of a driveway instead of racing to fill the gap and so on.
In fact, it bothers me that I get frustrated so fast. This is something I intend to explore in order to be more patient on the road.
After all, we could all use a little more love. Especially on the freeways.
