Are you the kind of person who stays in your own lane or do you overtake?
Overtaking is indeed exhilarating, flying past the slower more tentative driver can give you a rush.
Doped up feeling faster and cooler, ahead of the pack.
The chase to be ahead begins as a lighthearted race, sustained by overtaking as many people as possible.
At what point does it stop?
As there will always be someone slower or faster than you, switching lanes can go on until either you crash or get to your destination.
Then it starts again.
Why not just stay in your lane?
Why not pay attention to your own destination, not someone else’s?
Is it boredom, something to do on a long drive?
Is it power, winning at all costs?
Or is it jealousy that person has something you want?
Staying in your lane, focusing on your own future and dreams is harder than you would expect.
In the short term beating the other person to the finish line is more fun.
Though as soon as you gain the leading position, the fun stops.
And it’s time to overtake again, then again and again and again.
When does it end?
It never ends, unless you decide to remain in your own lane and stick it out.
You will at times feel bored, frustrated, ready to pull your hair out, and may succumb to passing the slower driver again.
Only to begin the race again.
Stick it out, stay in your lane; listen to your heart, to your passions, to what makes you happy.
Wave your hands to the slower drivers and thumbs up to the faster drivers, it does not matter where anyone is on their trip, all that is important is that you are following your heart.
Stay in your lane or swerve into others.
