Why am I so afraid of driving?
I am 20 almost 21 in July…I don’t understand why is it I am so afraid to go and get my drivers license? I mean I know how to drive really I do I am very aware of things and I can pick up on horse power and adjust to the car I am driving a little nerve racking at first. It seems like when I was supposed to get my license at the normal age of 16 my dad said well you have to have a 3.0…which was ******* impossible for me through out highschool because well I always got a 2.85 I always sucked at math and well thanks to math that was the reason why I never got a 3.0…and it seems like that had ruined my will to learn to drive…I ended up getting a learners permit and I drove around in my dads jeep nothing too bad happened I mean I had run a red light on a turn but no one was there any ways but my dad had flipped out and yelled at me like instead of a hey listen you ran that red light next time just pay more attention blah blah it wasn’t a main street either it was just going and turning on to a neighborhood street…then I didn’t drive for about a year and a half 2 years…then I drove my moms grandprix/truck when I had visited her I drove it well executed turns and everything well I obeyed speed limits etc…then I finally sucked it up and felt comfortable to go get my license and I went to go get it in walsenburg which is a dank *** town and they only give out licenses one time a week…on wed’s and I went to go get it I had confidence a little nervous not much…then for some reason the 1 day a week this guy is supposed to show up…he isn’t there…after all that prep he wasn’t there…I have been the passenger in several car accidents and have witnesses a few car accidents possible 2 were fatal I know 1 was the other 1 I saw infront of me a lady was screaming then stopped screaming and I left after the cops came idk if she made it or not…Well after 2 years of not driving again my Dad asked me to move his jeep from the garage to the other side of the drive way…yet I got in and backed it up and did it but I still feel anxious and nervous…I feel completely uneasy right now and spooked almost dramatized I don’t understand why I do I get soo anxious/nervous when it comes to driving? Especially in my dads jeep…I mean hell before that time I wanted to get my license…I ended up driving a manuel which I barely know how to do and driving some drunk lady home who was all up on me which was hard and distracting yet I was able to do it and if I would have gotten caught or pulled over I would have been screwed over completely…I don’t understand at all!? PLEASE HELP ME FIGURE IT OUT
Oh and I know if I had my license I could get a job a lot easier and I know that I could pick up and have a lot more fun with girls you know what I mean by that I understand that…this is the one thing I have no confidence in for those of you who know me! you know I can go up to any girl you know I can get out of a sticky situation…I can lie to cops and think I won’t get caught I am never nervous to take the last shot…I weight lift I have huge confidence from that but i don’t get this…this 1 freakin thing!
