Reflection 🤔

“We are going the wrong way…”

The words every driver hates to hear. While calculating time and gas wasted, you flip the car around and head in the right direction.

Turning around sucks, but the other option is unthinkable. What if the driver just kept going the wrong way? They’d end up somewhere they never intended.

It’s scary to realize that this is how a lot of people live their lives. Even when you know the direction you’re going isn’t right, you just keep ignoring the map and driving forward.
