The View from the Back Seat

Blind trust. It never came easily to me. I’ve always relied on questions to have a better understanding of any situation. I think: it’s an innate need to be in control of uncertainty and also have a better grip on my anxiety. I was scared of dentists and the dark I was scared of pretty…
