** I almost crash a kid today while cycling**
I ride my bike every evening. However, today, I almost hurt someone. I feel really bad, hence I think I feel the need to journal this. This evening, I rode my bike as usual, but somehow these thoughts started getting to my head, it was fury against someone that hurted me this year. I got so angry and i thought about what should i say to him, but i didn’t realize i’m speeding up.
It went for awhile, then i got to this intersection, i was cycling really close to the right lane, maybe it was my habit to get really close either to the left or right side of road (or maybe because i’m angry i didn’t think of cycling in the middle of the road). As i was about to turn right, there was a black car blocking my view to the right road, i didn’t realize i was quite fast and i supposed to slow down near the intersection, and there was an elderly woman with a kid in front of the car, and the kid suddenly wanted to walk to the front in the same time with me going right. I was so shocked and terrified, the kid was literally next to me as i cycled my bike, luckily the lady held the kid back. I should be apologizing for speeding up, but the shock left me speechless and i went straight home. But after awhile, i went back and rode my bike again in a more calm state to check what happened earlier. I am so sure that i was crazy fast in the rage mode before that the kid and the woman must be as shocked as i was
i feel guilty until now, especially because the woman and the kid lives next to me. I’m really sorry for them, especially the kid It’s really dangerous to drive or ride or do something while we are emotional and couldn’t focus our attention, keep safe guys
