15 Stages Of Being Obsessed With A Song

15 Stages Of Being Obsessed With A Song

When you hear it but just can`t name it.

We have all experienced that moment of bliss when listening to some new tunes. It seems to be a cycle, a rotation of music, and maybe there are a couple songs that really catch your attention, but there's one that speaks to you on another level. Here's how that works for some people.

1. Hear it for the first time

Wow, that's really good. But I forgot to look it up and now I don't remember enough to find it.

2. Hear it somewhere else

Okay, I have to find out what this is called.

3. Find the name of the song

I found it! It has a name!

4. Search it and listen again

I`m just going to give it another listen since it`s pulled up.

5. Then five more times

Or maybe a few more than just five...

6. Buy the song/add it to your playlist

I have to have it!

7. Listen to it on repeat

I'm just going to listen while I sleep, and I still won't get tired of it.

8. Tell your friends

Have you guys heard of ______?

9. Make them listen to it

Well you're going to hear it now.

10. Use the lyrics on social media because you relate so much

Is Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, and Facebook too much?

11. Annoy friends with how much you listen to it

My car, my jams.

12. Get them addicted to the song

I can see you singing along. I knew you`d come around.

13. Listen to it once a day instead of 20+ times

Now that I have it memorized I don't see why I would need to hear it again today when I can sing to myself.

14. Hear it on the radio and change the station looking for something new

I remember when I thought this song was one that wouldn't ever get old.

15. Repeat the process when you hear another song that catches your attention

Wait, go back! What's that song?

The steps may not be this extensive or maybe they are more so for some. When a song catches your attention like this I say keep listening to it, and when you think its been long enough, bring it back and see how you like it down the road.

An Open Letter To Every Girl With A Big Heart, Except When It Comes To Herself

Because it's so much easier to love everyone around you before yourself.

They say the key is that you have to "love yourself before you can love anyone else," or before "anyone can love you."

For those who deal with mass amounts of anxiety, or have many insecurities, that can be an extremely hard task. It seems much easier to tell your friend who is doubting herself that she looks great in that top than to look in the mirror and feel the same about yourself. It is much easier to tell your significant other that everything is going to be OK than to believe it will be when something goes wrong in your life. It becomes easier to create excuses for the ones around you than for yourself, and this is because you have such a big heart. You want those that you love to be happy and worry-free, yet you spend nights thinking about everything you have on your plate, about what you did wrong that day, fearing if someone in your life is mad at you, believing that you will never be good enough yet convincing everyone else that they are.

You are the girl with the biggest heart, yet you can't love yourself the way you care for everyone else in your life. There are many reasons that you should love yourself, though, and that's something that everyone around you is willing to tell you.

You're thoughtful.

Before doing anything, you always consider how it is going to affect those around you. You don't want to do anything that could hurt someone, or something that could make someone mad at you. It does not take much to make you happy, just seeing others happy does the job, and it is that simple. Because of this, you remember the little things. Meaningful dates, small details, and asking someone how their day was is important to you, and it makes those around you feel important too. You simply just want the people that you care about to be happy, and that is an amazing trait.

You're appreciative.

You don't need a big, fancy, and expensive date night to make you happy. Whether it's a picnic on the beach or a night in watching a movie, you're happy to just be with the person that you love. You appreciate every "good morning" text, and it truly does mean something when someone asks how you are. You tend to appreciate the person that you're with more than the things that they provide and for that, your sincerity will never go unnoticed.

You have a lot of love in your heart.

Every "I love you" has meant something, just as you remember the smallest moments that have meant the most to you. You remember the look in your significant other's eyes when they told you that for the first time. You remember the smile on your best friend's face when you told them that everything was going to be OK and that you would always be there. You remember the swell of happiness your parents felt when you decided to surprise them with a trip home one day, and you thrive off of all of that love.

You don't give up on the people you love, even if they have given you a reason to.

It is a foreign idea to just drop someone from your life, even if they betrayed you. You try to look at their mistake from every stance, not wanting to provide an excuse for them, but to give them another chance. Not everyone deserves it, and that is something that you learn along the way, but you feel good in the sense that you gave them a chance even if no one else would.

It's OK to not love yourself all the time. It's normal, and natural to stand in the mirror and think about everything wrong. And it's OK to love other people, even when you can't feel the same about yourself. But your big heart is why you should love yourself. There are so many reasons that you are a beautiful person, and the people that you spend all your time caring about feel that you have so much more to offer the world, and yourself.

So, next time you think about what you don't like about yourself, remember what makes you special –– the size of your heart and all of the love in it, and then share that love with yourself.
