I drive to work early in the morning, I drive back the same route in the evening. The distance is the same, the road is the same but in the opposite direction. It should be all the same, besides one thing, it’s at a different time. Believe it or not, but there are less egoists in the morning than you will find the afternoon. Is that a coincidence? Or do those people sleep longer?
We shouldn’t care too much about the opinion of other people, I understand that. But we should care about other people, especially in public traffic. I don’t know why, but I admire such people. People that can drive in the left lane no matter what, no matter who’s behind. They drive their speed and do not seem to care about the others. They can wait! They have to wait! My sister has such a talent. But me? I can’t. I can’t stand it to stand in someones way. If it’s avoidable, I avoid it. When I am driving the goal is always to have the perfect drive. And that includes not holding anybody up.
I should care less. I should get more relaxed, maybe not in traffic but in other walks of life. I should focus more on myself. But how do we do that? Practicing egoism? Is that even a thing? I guess the goal is not to become an egoist by the text book definition, but instead to focus more on oneself and forget about the others over time. We respect them, we gave them their space, but at the end of the day the only thing that matters is our health, our life, our day.
See you next time!
