    May not exactly be the proverbial ‘smoking gun’, but this is probably the closest I will get.

    It’s funny to me how innocuous it probably was to the person responsible for it, but what a game changer it is for me.

    I can’t describe the peace washing over me after years of internal turmoil.

    Maybe I’m not as crazy as I think.

    Ok, we can revisit this later. I promise no more distractions.

    Love you

      Stayed a night there not too long ago on a road trip through Cali. Interesting town, but I doubt it is the “Eureka” you are referring to;)

      What was the smoking gun and what does it change, if you do not mind me asking?

      Regardless, I agree, you are probably not as mentally deranged as you think. Especially when compared to some posters on here!

      @well its sounds like you would rather i didn’t?
      @california no it’s not, although it’s funny you said that. I meant eureka in the classic “I found it” sense. Someone I deeply care about told me years ago it was impossible for us to ever be together, and the reason why was repeated to me by many other people whom I generally trust. But I never fully believed it. Hence the crazy feelings, believing something everyone has told you is not true, I think that’s the definition actually. The smoking gun was just proof that I was right, and what I found isn’t exactly that because I’ll always be able to rationalize something away but this is pretty close. It doesn’t change my situation really, but it gives me a lot more confidence in myself, in my own sanity. And I appreciate your seconding my renewed mental health lol, I can’t tell you how good it feels to be told you’re not crazy!

      Thanks for responding.

      I swear there is something about your voice that sounds so familiar.

      I have a theory about your smoking gun.

      Something to do with a previous post you wrote and a response you received, that made you go ‘Eureka?!’

      The thing is our hearts will always find evidence in what it wants to believe. And then, like you mentioned, our brains will always rationalize it away as coincidence. A constant struggle between heart and mind. But what if there is just too much evidence to be rationalized away? Does the heart win that battle? Does it give you the confidence to actually change the situation?

      Ahh, so many questions! Sorry for rambling. I tend to do that.

      Last one…

      Do you think two long lost lovers have ever been able to randomly find each other on here, communicate what they were never able to, and find each other again in real life?

      Doubtful, I know… But what a story it would be!

      Aha, sounds like that’s what you would expect (from your person)?

      What I meant comes close to what you say yourself: “It doesn’t change my situation really”
