I had a super strange night last night. As I stepped into the shower, a strange calm came over me about what has been going on. The accident? Telling my dad? I wasn’t worried about it anymore. I realized that I was more stressed out about my dad’s reaction than the actual accident and how *I* would deal with it.
The epiphany I had? I’m an adult. The car may be in my dad’s name but I pay for it and the insurance. This isn’t my first accident. I am responsible for handling the consequences and I will. All my dad has to do is go to the police station to sign to have the car released to me and/or the insurance company since he’s the title owner…as co-signer, I apparently have no choice.
Then I realized that no matter how upset my dad might get, I’m an adult. Almost 25, I’ve taken a big step in my life this past year by moving out and taking my life in my hands. Every decision I make, every mistake that brings a consequence lies on my shoulders. I wasn’t hurt physically so my dad doesn’t have to worry about that…and sure, they might use this as an argument for me to move back home and not having a car will make my visits to my parents’ home a little stressful but…In the end…my life will continue.
As I was cleaning my room after my shower, I noticed that my driver’s license and registration were nowhere to be found. After texting the Boy to see if I dropped them in his car, I realized that I was due for a new license after turning 21 and my car registration needed to be renewed anyway so I remained calm.
“Good thing I don’t have to drive for a while”, I put on Twitter with the tag #positiveandshit
I’m normally not THIS calm and positive, despite trying to stay positive everyday.
I guess I realized there are some things that are not worth worrying about because I have no control. I just walked away from a car accident that could’ve left me injured or even worse…dead.
Life is stressful and full of surprises but I’m prepared to deal with them. One day of stressing out and being in shock was enough. It’s time to move forward, clean up this mess and continue living my life.
