Driving with a spouse in the car


#1

Why do I become an overanxious driver when my husband rides with me? I drive like an in-control competent driver until my husband accompanies me. Then I become overly aggressive and try to demonstrate how great a driver I am. It leads to many

bad moves… ugh…


#2

Try driving with two spouses in the car!


#3

Sounds to me like he has a habit of making non-verbal critical ‘comments’ anytime he is not in control or in the driver’s seat. Work on becoming more assertive with him in other areas of your life and marriage and I bet you will become more confident when it is your turn to be in the driver’s seat. Just my opinion.


#4

We don’t know anything about you. How can we answer that question?


#5

Who are you really trying to impress? Why are you so easily intimidated? When you drive you are the captain of the vehicle. Relax!


#6

It is difficult to be a passenger and you recognize that he’s uncomfortable. Drive like you know how. You want to have a mind bending experience? Pretend that your spouse is driving all the other cars on the road! Sometimes I do that and it stops my road faults. Don’t do it for too long. Just remembering that you did it, will change some of your thinking.
