I took this very challenge some time ago by “giving” unconditionally or Loving the drivers around me. I drove with this sort of angelic trance. I saw people in need of a little space, so I gave it. This isn’t a call to drive “passively”. This is an active concept. This isn’t waving someone in front of you at a 4-way stop out of your turn, do try to follow the rules of the road and right of way, THAT’s kind. This is letting that guy in the parking lot back up. This is giving an extra car length of space to the car in front of you.
WHAT!!?? I can hear you saying it now….but that guy is going to cut me off and get in front of me!! That’s right, he’s going to make you 3 seconds later to where you’re going. I’m suggesting that you give him that time, that space, unconditionally. See what it does to your commute.
Try it yourself! What’s going to happen if you start driving nice? Are you going to risk having a better day?!! Is somebody going to wave at you with all 5 fingers instead of one?!!
