**Theorem 1.1. ** The pain, longing, and ambivalence I feel related to this particular past lover (hereafter “him”, “he” or “you”) is not unhealthy.

*Proof:*

By definition, “Time heals all wounds.”

Suppose for all purposes, 11 years is considered to be ‘Time’.

It is true that 11 years have passed, however I am not healed.

Thus, this thing I feel is not really a wound.

**Theorem 1.2. **There exists a value in this lover that I use to cope with a deficiency in my current state of being.

*Proof:*

By Theorem 1.1, this lover does not represent some larger, unresolved issue.

It is true, however, that I still have been unable to let him go.

Therefore, he must be notable for a different reason.

By supposition, that different reason is that he and I had an unrivaled connection. I.e. While there is no such thing as soulmates, our cognitive compatibility was substantially higher than that of my previously observed matches.

Hence, I feel an intensity through recollecting him such that most other things pale in comparison.

Therefore, I remember him in order to feel something when I don’t.

**Theorem 2.1.** There exists an absolute truth about why I loved him and why I haven’t been able to let go.

*Proof:*

By definition, “All things happen for a reason.”

Since it is true that loving him and being unable to let go has happened, there must be a reason that caused it.

This reason must be the truth. Suppose not; i.e., suppose this reason was not the truth. Then it would not have possessed the power necessary to cause such a consequential thing to happen.

Such a consequential thing *did* happen. Thus, there is an attributable reason that is the truth.

**Theorem 2.2. **I must understand why I have not been able to let go—in order to let go.

*Proof:*

By my own definition, I am a finder of truth.

By Theorem 2.1, there is a truth to be found. If there is a truth I have not yet found, then I must find it in order to exist since finding truth defines me.

Thus, I have no path forward but to find the truth.

CAVEAT: Due to the following factors, the validity of the proofs outlined above is questionable:

- Invalid underlying assumptions
- Faulty reasoning
- Insufficient information

As a result, extrapolation based on the conclusions laid out in the preceding section is not advised.
