Emotions we feel but can’t explain

I found this while surfing the internet some days ago and first thing that came to my mind is to share it on my blog, trust me you’d love it hehe. The internet is an interesting place

  • Kenopsia: The eerie, forlorn atmosphere of a place that is usually bustling with people but is now abandoned and quiet. 
  • Mauerbauertraurigkeit : (This i can’t even pronounce omg! how do people name these things ! ) The inexplicable urge to push people away, even close friends who you really like—as if all your social tastebuds suddenly went numb, leaving you unable to distinguish cheap politeness from the taste of genuine affection, unable to recognize its rich and ambiguous flavors, its long and delicate maturation, or the simple fact that each tasting is double-blind
  • Jouska:  A hypothetical conversation that you compulsively play out in your head—a crisp analysis, a cathartic dialogue, a devastating comeback—which serves as a kind of psychological batting cage where you can connect more deeply with people than in the small ball of everyday life, which is a frustratingly cautious game of change-up pitches, sacrifice bunts, and intentional walks.
  • Chrysalism: The amniotic tranquility of being indoors during a thunderstorm.
  • Vemödalen: The frustration of photographing something amazing when thousands of identical photos already exist
  • Anecdoche: A conversation in which everyone is talking but nobody is listening
  • Ellipsism: A sadness that you’ll never never be able to know how history will turn out
  • Kuebiko: A state of exhaustion inspired by acts of senseless violence.
  • Exulansis: The tendency to give up trying to talk about an experience because people are unable to relate to it.
  • Adronitis: Frustration with how long it takes to know someone
  • Rückkehrunruhe – n. the feeling of returning home after an immersive trip only to find it fading rapidly from your awareness
  • Nodus Tollens: The realization that the plot of your life doesn’t make sense to you anymore
  • Onism: The frustration of being stuck in just one body, that inhabits only one place at a time
  • 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.
  • Occhiolism: The awareness of the smallness of your perspective 
  • Sonder: The realization that each passerby has a life as vivid and complex as your own.
  • Opia: The ambiguous intensity of looking someone in the eye, which can feel simultaneously invasive and vulnerable
  • Monachopsis: The subtle but persistent feeling of being out of place
  • Enouement: The bittersweetness of having arrived in the future, seeing how things turn out, but not being able to tell your past self.
  • Vellichor: The strange wistfulness of used bookshops
  • Rubatosis: The unsettling awareness of your own heartbeat

I hope you enjoyed reading, you can also add one or more to keep the train moving. Enjoy xxxx

    Ha, Reina, “Mauerbauertraurigkeit” is a bit a alliteration. It´s created as a new word and I never heard this before. But it is German. For you it is a tongue twister, called Zungenbrecher in German. Great joke for me, because I think pronouncing “Zungenbrecher” is a Zungenbrecher too, haha! 😀
