Dear Car

Dear Car

You used to be all I wanted, I thought we were made for each other.  But I’m sorry, this relationship just isn’t working for me anymore.  All you do is take, and you’re just no good for me.  When I’m around you I just feel ……stuck.  You promised me adventure and freedom, but we spend too much time just sitting around, waiting around, not going anywhere.  And you always want money, there is never enough for you: insurance, petrol, registration, petrol, repairs, petrol… it’s never ending.  

Times have changed.  Life isn’t just about keeping your car happy anymore, and I’m ready to explore my options.  I’ve seen that there is another, better way of living, and that is what I want.  I want to go places under my own steam, park where I want, feel the gentle breeze in my face.  I want to see the world from a new perspective; and be part of it again.

I hope we can still be friends, you’ll always have a special place in my life.  But I just don’t want to be in a full time relationship with you anymore.  I want other modes in my life.  I’ve been spending a lot of time with bike, and I just feel so alive – healthier, happier.  At first I thought bike was just a bit of fun, but it’s so much more than that.  I also like hanging around with public transport, and bike is really supportive of that, and doesn’t mind if I want to walk occasionally.

So it’s time to move on.  A New Year and all that.  Maybe after you’ve gotten some help, you know, detox…. gone electric, then maybe we can spend more time together… but for now…. goodbye and all the best.
