    I collect interesting words.

    I recently posted the word cathexis on another thread. It means the concentration of emotional energy on an object, person, idea, or goal. I sometimes meet people who are quite intense and some who are even manic. Many movies have plots that are developed around characters whose cathexes provide compelling viewing.

    If you have an interesting word for this thread please proceed for all to read.:)

    I have some favourite quotes and newspaper template here which i used during writing articles. Every article must be unique and interesting for readers. And the newspaper must have cool and attractive design for people. Templates usually have simple design which can be used by beginners.

    This sounds like obsessive.

    Catharsis: the process of releasing strong emotions.
    After having denied the possibility of RUQ pain from possible cirrhosis or cancer since last February, I recently acknowledged the possibility of this to myself, and thus began the unpacking, or catharsis, of repressed emotions.
    I feel much better now and a song came out of it. This process also triggered the memory of a near death experience I had 17 years ago where I stood face-to-face with Jesus.
    Cool thread! BTW...this is the day! Lol
    God Bless America! :)

    Yes, a bit of traffic on this thread has me browsing, and now this quote is standing out:

    Link: Catharsis - Wikipedia

    Legal scholars have linked "catharsis" to "closure"[32] (an individual's desire for a firm answer to a question and an aversion toward ambiguity) and "satisfaction" which can be applied to affective strategies as diverse as retribution, on one hand, and forgiveness on the other.[33]

    Put the two together, and it describes a healing the Lord has just done in me. Once again, I'm standing back, a little awed, and a little afraid. I recall that He's my Abba.
