When you learned it?

How you felt when you learned it?

I love learning and oftentimes I challenge myself to spend time learning something new in my life. Although I am a lover of learning, still there were times that I feel like giving up learning. I guess it’s human nature to feel that way when something is really difficult.

Here I would tend to elaborate about the time when I learned how to drive. A few years ago, I made up my mind to enroll in a driving school so that I could learn how to operate a car and for me to be independent of my father. During those times, I  felt an apology for my father since he always sent me to college even though he’s incredibly busy with our business. 

At that time,  I could not leave my college classes because I had to pay a huge chunk of money at the time of admission as these classes were essential for my bright future. Apart from this, I could not use any public transport since the college was just way too far from our home. Because of that reason, I made the decision to learn to drive. I enrolled in one of the best driving schools in the city and started to learn how to drive a manual transmission car.

I felt anxious because the use of clutch always made me confused most especially when I was driving on an upward slope. What made me nervous was when my engine stopped in the middle of the road and some cars behind me started to honk their horn. I really lost my self-esteem when I was under those circumstances.

In the end, there were times that I wanted to stop learning but I couldn’t accept failure. So I decided to keep going and but I do remember it took me more than one month to learn swimming, while on average, people pick it up within 1-2 weeks. No doubt, Learning a new skill is a daunting task, and with regular practice, we can become masters.
