I guess it's kind of weird and shallow, but the new car has seriously boosted my self esteem. I knew that driving an old junker was bringing me down, but kept telling myself stuff like that doesn't matter...yeah it does. Driving a car with a dent in the side and pieces falling off and making scary noises was just not good for how I feel about myself. And the extent to which it was affecting my behavior was unacceptable, i.e. stress about doing errands, questioning whether I would get to or from work, being unable to plan even short road trips...wow. I really let that get out of hand. Glad that's over!
