Growing up in rural Mississippi, I learned the art of driving by cruising down gravel and dirt roads before graduating to the two lane highways. As you travel in one direction facing the traffic in another, you learn to stay in your own lane.
Swerve too far to the right and you are liable to end up in a ditch. Move too far to the left and you are subject to have a head on collision with the other vehicle. Crash!
This driving precision teaches you much about life. The similarities are uncanny.
There is much to be said respective to staying in your own lane.
In order words, if you mind your own business and stay out of other folks’ affairs, it is smoother sailing. Once you enter the other lane, you are in someone else’s territory both figuratively and literally.
When you meddle, you cross the line!
Where you end up is where your intrusion takes you.
“You are an accident waiting to happen” when you start interfering. No speed will keep you safe in those types of circumstances. Fender bending becomes your outcome regardless of your destination!
The reference thus far speaks of a two lane highway. Sticking your nose into multiple folks’ affairs is probably an unmanageable interstate that may not be in your best interest to travel. Eventually, you might get side swiped in more ways than one – if you know what I mean!
