Q: What is the difference between it strikes me that and it hits me that ?
A: "it strikes me that" means you have come to a sudden realization. The idiom is used in direct conversation with someone, in the present tense.
Ex: "My friend, it strikes me that you might be in love, since you talk about her all the time."
Ex: "It strikes me that although you say you are my friend, you always ignore me."

"it hits me that" means to come to a sudden realization as well, but the idiom is used primarily in the past tense, and sounds awkward in the present tense. It is used when you are reflecting on a past event. You would say "it hit me that," not "it hits me that."

Example:
