Being in the right place at the right time is one thing, but a true coincidence can give you full body chills. Running into an old friend in another country, stumbling into unknown family connections out of nowhere, or any accident that turns into a blessing or a major life discovery is definitely a story you hold onto. Maybe everything we do isn't actually just a meaningless grind? The universe is mystery!
So, when a recent Reddit user asked, "What's the most insane coincidence you've ever experienced?" people were definitely ready to share.
I moved to India when I was 10 years old with my family. When we moved into our apartment in Mumbai my parents told me that my room used to belong to a girl my age named Sarah.
Fast forward 1 year, I go to Bangkok for a swim meet meet a girl named Sarah who used to live in Mumbai. Details are exchanged, turns out it is the Sarah who used to have the bedroom that I was still occupying in Mumbai.
Fast forward 6 years, parents are currently living in Turkey and I begin College at a small school in Illinois (like 1000 students). Everyone keeps telling me about this 'other girl who grew up abroad that I should meet'. We eventually meet at a party. It is the same Sarah. Apparently I follow her around the world. - pinkrobots
