I've posted a lot about my obsession issue with my former group. Though, I have not provided the dirty details. I am not going to do that in this space.
However, I think I found a foothold the other night. Gained a clue about what spawned the obsession. I give this credit because I have noticed this about myself in other areas and never applied it to this and because, I think this would come appear to come out of left field for anyone that knows the nature of the conflict. When answers are counter-intuitive and yet make perfect sense and feel real, I gave them a little more weight.
There may be hope. Call me an optimist.
