So relatable. I’ve been that bitch too. It’s refreshing to read about another human experiencing a veryhuman moment. I think we all have opportunities to be that contracted version of ourselves. Driving to me is such an opportunity to practice compassion and mindfulness. Such a simple thing can become so emotional. It’s amazing how people can start to feel safe expressing emotions like rage with perfect strangers. There’s some kind of safety in that. I notice myself really triggered by aggressive drivers, like the one you experienced (to me that seemed very aggressive). It knots me up inside. I have a reaction. I take it two ways; being almost submissive to it or getting aggressive. There’s a happy medium somewhere in there. I think that happy medium is what we are always striving to find.
