Two weeks ago my friend had picked me up from my house. I was in the back and he had a friend in the passenger seat. We just left my house at midnight and were driving down my hill. He decides to floor it and tell the 15 year old passenger to take the wheel. Since it was a curvy road and they weren't familiar with it, the car ended up getting pulled in to the gravel. After that the driver took the wheel and lost control causing us to slam into a tree and spin multiple times, if I wasn't wearing my seatbelt I would of definitely died. I will probably have two scars, one from the seatbelt on my neck, and one from glass slamming in to my leg cutting it wife open. I was relatively okay and I was the responsible one in the accident. After it happened I wasn't mad, at least not too mad for it. I was mad that he was so stupid because I would of never done what he did, especially on an unfamiliar road. Since it's been a few weeks, my grain has calmed down and I feel back to normal. I am and was mad at myself for getting in the car, but I'm even more mad at him. Why did he have to do that? He had bud in the car and was breaking two other laws, why would you speed? it's just asking to get pulled over anyways. I'm irritated at him and pissed, I just think why did he have to be so stupid. My mother told me to not be mad at him and everything, but I can't help but be. What makes it worse is, he was talking shit about me and picking on me last night when we were hanging out with one of his friends. I'm not insecure or anything, just makes me mad. Is it normal to feel angry at him because of what happened?

The first time you have an experience that makes you realize that you could have died but for the grace of God, it makes you "grow up" and become a bit more responsible. It also makes you become a bit more judgmental about your peers who are still acting irresponsibly. I think some people are also mad because their ignorance-is-bliss-and-nothing-can-ever-hurt-me innocence is taken from them.
Not everyone reacts this way to such an experience, but it is not uncommon at all.0
