Just the other day I was talking about learning to drive a bike and today I am talking about learning to drive a car… 😀
I know you must be thinking, this is a joke or might be laughing at me… But no… Well, I can definitely learn driving a car and maybe I might this year or next… or sooner.
You know it’s not like I don’t have the opportunity or I can’t but every time I think of it something within me keeps saying, it’s not the time yet…or maybe I won’t be able to do it…( overthinking + confidence issues are the devils, I live with who just loves to annoy me all the time.)
But some days I just yearn to get out on a long drive either to Nariman point or marine drive and just sit there for some time, watch the sunset and come back. This urge keeps coming but the most I craved was on my last Birthday, which was in January.
I keep imagining this that I am going on a long drive either in the evenings and watching the sunset and return or drive early in the morning watch the sunrise and return but not without having a roadside tea. I just wish to go on a long drive (alone) with good music and enjoy the drive.
I know the prejudice that exists around that women are not good drivers…But were men just born drivers and driving even before they started walking? -_-
We all learn irrespectively of our gender right? And all those critical accidents we see around if you ever visit some highway where trucks are smashed and lying around, we all can agree with that did not happen because a woman was driving it.
So if a few men are responsible for worse of worse accidents why not blame every man then? Anyway, this debate is baseless and never going to end so let’s not get into it.
The day I actually get confidence that I can also drive and will be able to drive will be the day I will approach the training center. The day I receive my driving license will be one of the happiest days of my life just like my post-graduation convocation day was… That much happiness learning to drive would give me and that much it means to me learning to drive and then drive on my own.
For many, it’s not a luxury but for me it is. It is kind of something I wish to achieve and I hope I will someday find the courage and confidence to accomplish my wish of learning to drive. Driving is a mundane thing for some, but for me, it’s like a dream that I wish to accomplish someday and take myself on a long drive…
Do you have some kind of wish that is as absurd as mine is to learn to drive it’s doable but it’s just something within you keeps pulling you back?
