Don’t some drivers just make you crazy?!
Yeah, me too…
…except that one little fact that other people can’t MAKE me feel anything.
…I’m the only one feeling the frustration. I want them to suffer from their poor driving, too.
But, they just keep on
- Singing away
- Putting on makeup
- Picking their nose.
They don’t even notice how frustrated I am with them.
Because, they are not caught up in this whole line of thought that is going on in my head.
Only my thoughts about others’ driving can MAKE me feel that frustration (or anything else).
The way other people drive is simply a fact in life.
It is reality.
I can’t control it.
It is neutral.
Well, until I make it not neutral with my thoughts.
And, as I’m sure you already know, getting mad at other drivers does not serve me or you in any way.
Who knows? Maybe you are that same infuriating, clueless driver for someone else.
What?! Me?! Never….
So, the next time you are in rush hour traffic, remember that only your thoughts control how you feel.
You are the only one in charge of you.
Leave the other people to deal with their own stuff.
