Reasons why bugs might feel "impossible".

Sometimes you see something early on when debugging that looks VERY suspicious and spend a long time investigating it, but then it turns out to be totally unrelated to the bug. This is pretty normal and it often doesn’t mean you did anything wrong (you can’t take the perfect most efficient path to understanding the bug every time!). But it can be really demoralizing.
