The thoughts can seem ever so real, because we rehearse them over and over, our already incredible imagination making things seem real, even though they are most likely not.  Obviously, there can be no proof in any directions, but let’s be fair, we can’t done anything to upset anyone, or they would have challenged us if we had. They would have made a big issue of it, but I hazard a guess that it hasn’t, and they haven’t, so we need to teach ourselves how to be gentle with ourselves… ‘It can definitely help make things a bit easier for us’.
