Emotions You Feel but Can't Explain

23 Perfect Terms For Those Emotions You Feel but Can't Explain

Have you ever felt like a tiny speck compared to the ocean? Frustrated because you wish you could be in two places at once? Completely calm on your couch during a thunderstorm? Nostalgic while browsing an old bookshop?

Us, too. And there's a word for each of those totally unique, nearly indescribable feelings. Now is there a word for the relief we feel because of that?

Tumblr user introvertunites put together a list of terms to describe complex emotions that tend to occur during out-of-ordinary circumstances, based on the findings of John Koenig, writer and creator of The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows.

A few of the stand-out definitions include monachopsis, or "the subtle but persistent feeling of being out of place"; liberosis, "the desire to care less about things"; mauerbauertraurigkeit, "the inexplicable urge to push people away, even close friends"; and kuebiko, "a state of exhaustion inspired by acts of senseless violence." Check out more below, and rejoice — there's a community that understands those weird feelings you're feeling. Thanks, Tumblr.
