As soon as I left the abusive relationship I was slowly dying from, I sat for the driving test. Immediately.
The time passed by without me ever driving a car.
For the first time of my life, I recently bought a car. And I drive almost every day.
I did not know such happiness was possible. This is far more than the freedom of going anywhere I want and need. This is woman empowerment, independence and taking responsibility for my life.
