The other day I was doing my once daily scroll on Facebook, and a post caught my eye. It was a short video about 10 emotions that actually have names. Several of them resonated with me. Granted, I'm not saying they're real words, just that yes, I've felt these things.
Opia: the ambiguous intensity of looking someone in the eye, which feels invasive and vulnerable at the same time.
Monachopsis: the subtle but persistent feeling of being out of place.
Liberosis: the desire to care less about things.
Kenopsia: the eerie, forlorn atmosphere of a place that is usually bustling with people but it now abandoned and quiet.
Chrysalism: the amniotic tranquility of being indoors during a thunderstorm.
Ellipsism: a sadness that you'll never be able to know how history will turn out.
Occhiolism: the awareness of the smallness of your perspective.
How about you? Did any of these feeling words resonate?
