Shame on me!

Sometimes I can be so stubborn, it makes me sick! If someone else were me, I'd slap her! I don't know why there are some things that I just don't do!!

I've been learning to drive since I was in class 12, that was like 6-7 years back. I've been to two driving schools, and I have a valid driver's license. But I just can't drive!!! Everytime I try, everytime I sit on the wheel, it feels as if the car is out to get me! My legs shake, my knuckles turn white and my heart beats faster than a subway train! And if someone tells me to reverse, I experience a nervous breakdown!

God knows when will I gain confidence on the wheel!! It's really a shame!!

I can do thousands of other things but lose my confidence in driving...all I can say is that keep poractising and u'll get there..dont give up!

Driving a car is a HUGE deal - anyone who tells you otherwise is just lying lol. I mean you have to have eyes all around your head, your hands feet eye ears brain all have to work at the same time, you have be anticipate other peoples moves, you have to super fast reflexes. It's complicated.

I don't drive because I have road rage as a passenger hehe. Which is why I am so glad that the public transport system in Mumbai is so good :)
