Thought Catalog

It was love. It felt real. It felt like nothing else in the world was truly right until you met him. He became the world. He became your world..

Until it came crashing down.

At first, it hurts a lot. Like you’ve just had open heart surgery and watched the doctor play with your still-beating pieces and break them in his hand over and over until it’s tiny shards of what used to be whole. You’ll cry. Your chest will hurt because your heart is broken. The very mention of the word “love” or a thought of Him will leave you excusing yourself to go have a mini-breakdown session in the restroom. And then, guess what? You’ll cry some more.

Then, you’ll feel numb. Like not a single thing in the world can phase you. Like you just had every emotion in the world ripped out of…

10 Tips To Help You Get Unstuck From Your Circumstances

I Could Be The OneI Could Be The One

1. Figure out why you feel the way you do – Many people try to fix a problem without accurately diagnosing it. The first thing you need to do is get to the root of your problems. A doctor doesn’t just give a patient medicine or perform a surgery without first receiving a good deal of background information to act upon. This first step is crucial. It may take you some time to get to the answer. If you have to sit in the dark for hours to figure it out, so be it. You can’t fix something without knowing why it is the way it is. It sounds obvious, but in reality many people jump right to the fixing without knowing what’s actually wrong.

2. Find out what you’re good at – Perhaps you are in the wrong career field and your occupation isn’t…

1. You love how you can fall asleep with books in your bed but they’ll never hog all the covers.

2. Your idea of a perfect date includes you, your favorite beverage and a new book. You really don’t need much more than that to be happy on any given night.

3. As soon as you wake up you’re thinking about where you’re at in the latest book you’re reading. You’re thinking about the characters, the story line, and wondering what’s going to happen next. You have a hard time thinking about anything else except getting some free time to read more.

4. If you don’t wake up thinking about your book you’re likely going to bed with it next to you. The best nights in are nights spent reading.

5. Wherever you go you always bring a book with you. It doesn’t matter if it’s something boring…

1. You’re completely against judging a book by its cover, but you will absolutely judge a person by their favorite book, without hesitation.

2. The main reason you fear death is because there are just so many books to read and you have to read them all and damn it if death doesn’t understand that! Heaven better be a giant library, that’s all I’m saying.

3. “Just one more chapter” is the most valid argument you’ve ever heard.

4. One of the greatest joys is reorganizing your bookshelf. And by “reorganizing,” we mean taking all the books off the shelf, cleaning the shelf, and putting all of the books back exactly where they were before, but taking the time to individually reminisce on each book as it’s lovingly placed back on the shelf. You’re basically Scrooge McDuck counting and recounting all of his gold.

5. You need a minimum…

Death is a fearful word,but inevitable.



“The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.”

Mark Twain

I was a child the first time I saw a man die. I don’t remember the event as particularly traumatic. The man was a stranger and I watched the tragedy unfold through a window, the glass glaring the line between reality and fantasy and giving the sensation of watching a particularly disturbing television program. While swimming in the basement pool of our apartment block my father, sister and I noticed a group of 3 people sleeping on the private dock outside the building. We saw the beer bottles and noted that all three were in their underwear and figured they were just “sleeping it off”. My father ran outside after one man got up, stumbled to the end of the dock and got into the…

Intensify It


Shinedown – Amaryllis

“I don’t want to tell you who I am,” she whispers just as I’m thinking how much I want her to keep talking.
I want her to talk to me until I know enough to make her the main character of a novel I’d never even thought of before her.
“You don’t have to,” I say, “but I would love to discover you.”
“Create me, then.”
She takes my hand and wraps it around her waist, and as I hold her I think that maybe this girl shouldn’t be out there. I shouldn’t think of her as a character, artistic as that might be. She doesn’t need to belong to the world. She doesn’t even have to belong to me. Some paintings aren’t meant to be exposed, they are only meant to express.
I want to capture her essence and remember it forever, but then I remember that she is in my…
