It seems like like is run by emotions and little else.
Two years ago, I lost 50lbs (which was a good thing) in part due to a depression (which was a bad thing). One year ago I gained 40 pounds due to another depression (which was another bad thing).
Nothing more about that, that's just an example of the power emotion can have over one's life.
I experience many different emotions while traveling. When I drive, someone driving slowly or having to go through road construction makes me angry. For a very long time. Unreasonably so (though not uncontrollably, I'm not going to hurt anyone). When cycling, a car can come within inches of killing me due to negligence, and after a minute or two I've fogotten all about it.
Cars isolate us from our environment, make us think of everything outside of our own minds as The Enemy. Bikes allow us to experience the environment face to face, to actually see people as people and not just obstructions. It makes us all human again.
Want another reason I'm trying to go car free? I am done with the anger of driving.
Jesus said "And if your hand or your foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away."
I think I should cut off my car and throw it away.
