To great delight of my instructor, I’m actually learning more about myself in these driving lessons than anything else. Yesterday’s lesson didn’t go too well. This week in general has been tough on me and felt more like a step back in my recovery than a step forward but I think I finally figured out why. I tried to walk before I could run. It takes time, both learning to drive and recovering from burnout.
Today’s lesson went much better, I was a lot more relaxed and in my case, this translates into more confident driving. I still had a couple moments where I got overwhelmed and seized up but they were far fewer than yesterday. Yay for progress, right?
