Thought for today  
There is no way to prove that this world we experience is real. The only reason not to retreat into absolute solipsism is a pragmatic approach to this possibly-illusory reality that closely parallels Pascal's Wager.

I was hit hard by this realization during my nervous breakdown when I was 14. I reached the point where not retreating into solipsism required a leap of faith. That was before I realized how FUN existentialism could be.
