So, I crashed my car for the first time today. I think my track record is pretty good considering that I’ve been driving for 16+ years. Noone was hurt.
I don’t react well to stressful situations. I am very proud that I mostly held it together. It probalby helps that the guy who was involved in the accident was probably one of the nicest people I’ve ever met. Considering the way that we met.
One of the first things I lamented when I had time to think was that I had just written how great my life is going. And then I crash. But…rather than disproving what I wrote, I believe that my point was made more clear to me.
No one was hurt. It could’ve been a huge pile up consider the traffic volume. Yes, I’ll have to pay for my mistake in the form of a deductible and probable increase in insurance fees, but both the other driver and I have insurance.
I had to learn, once again, to depend on someone. I’m not good at it, but I had to accept help. My favorite quote of the day was, “Deneen, if you have to depend on me for transportation, you know your life has taken a turn for the worse.”
I have been blessed with a wonderful person in my life. Giving, caring, amusing. I don’t know what I would do or where I would be if circumstances didn’t cross our paths.
