An increasing number of apparently distraught and confused people are leaving comments. In some cases, their comments include helpful insights and data, but many comments are simply pleas for help.
In a way, this site provides support to people who’ve experienced the Mandela Effect, because they can read the comments and realize they’re not alone and they’re not “crazy” just for noticing a reality change.
That’s as much as this site can offer without wading into dangerous waters, and topics that could sidetrack our conversations.
However, I’d like to include brief, generic advice from those who’ve experienced the Mandela Effect. I’m looking for insights from those who’ve come to terms with how odd the Mandela Effect can seem, not just to the person who’s experienced it, but to those around him (or her), and the strained conversations that can result.
So, for a couple of days, I invite you to leave comments… especially those of you who’ve been visiting this site for years, and understand how difficult it can be, to stumble onto these concepts and feel overwhelmed.
Here’s what I’d like:
- Advice to someone who isn’t sure if the Mandela Effect is real.
- Advice to someone who’s talked about this with friends and family, and those conversations haven’t gone well.
- Advice to someone who feels vulnerable, or like a pawn in the sliding/reality-change process.
Please keep it brief. Ideally, most will be two or three sentences or — at most — short (100 words or less) “pep talks.” Do not include lengthy personal anecdotes, or anything more than vague references to others, your medical history, etc.
Speaking of medical issues, let’s avoid off-the-cuff prescriptions like “here’s an herb/vitamin/mineral that might help calm you,” or diagnoses like “You’re not mad/crazy/mentally ill.” (Seriously, you haven’t seen the many odd comments I’ve deleted.)
This post is now closed to new comments. Thanks to all who shared their advice!
