Do You Know You Might Be Having These Feelings And Not Know What It Is Called?

in esteem •  8 months ago

Hello Esteemed Steemians!
Right now it is bright and sunny right outside my door. And sitting on the doorsteps ( I ain't entering that sun without a solid reason), I watched peple passing. The children hawking stuff, the shopkeepers attending to their customers, kids playing around and even strangers passing by. For a moment there, I got overwhelmed with the immensity of imagining the stories this people have, the lives they live, the dreams they have and all of that.
I had to go back into the house for a while and clear my head. And so I got to wondering what this feeling I just had could be called. Did some digging and turned up a number of emotions people feel, but cannot explain. Let me start with that which got me started in the first place.

  • Sonder
    The realization that each passerby has a life as vivid and complex as your own.

  • Occhiolism
    The awareness of the smallness of your perspective.

  • Anecdoche
    A conversation where everyone is talking but nobody is listening.

  • Exulansis
    The tendency to give up trying to talk about an experience because people are unable to relate to it.*

  • Mauerbauertraurigkeit
    The inexplicable urge to push people away, even close friends you really like.

  • Jouska
    A hypothetical conversation that you compulsively play out in your head.

  • Nodus Tollens
    The realization that the plot of your life doesn't make sense to you anymore.

  • Monachopsis
    The subtle but persistent feeling of being out of place.

  • Liberosis
    The desire to care less about things.

  • Ellipsism
    A sadness that you'll never know how history will turn out.

  • Adronitis
    Frustration at how long it is taking to get to know someone.

  • Vemödalen
    Frustration at photographing somethhing amazing when thousands of identical photos already exist.

  • Chrysalism
    The feeling of tranquility akin to being in the womb, felt when you are indoors during a thunderstorm.

  • Opia
    The ambiguous intensity of looking someone in the eye, which can feel simultaneously invasive and vulnerable.

  • Enouement
    The bittersweet feeling of having arrived in the future, seeing how things turn out, but not being able to tell your past self.

  • Vellichor
    The strange wistfulness encontered in used books shops.

  • Altschmerz
    Weariness with the same old issues that you've always had - the same boring flaws and anxieties that you've been gnawing on for years.

  • Kuebiko
    A state of exhaustion brought about by acts of senseless violence.

  • Lachesism
    The desire to be struck by disaster.

  • Kenopsia
    The eerie, desolate atmosphere of a place usually bustling with people but now abandoned and quiet.

  • Rubatosis
    The disquieting awareness of your own heartbeat.

    Yeah I know, some of those words look as if being able to pronounce it should be criminal, but it is what it is. Madeleine L'Engle, A Wrinle In Time succinctly expresses my opinion:
    "I don't understand it any more than you do, but one thing I've learned is that you don't have to understand things for them to be."

Happy Weekend y'all!
