Our lives are all about words. Words connect different human lives and impart meaning to them.
Whenever we pick up a dictionary, we find so many words to describe ourselves, personally and emotionally. However, sometimes those words aren’t enough to connect with us. They may not appeal to us in an emotional way.
Often, we find ourselves in situations when we want to say so much, but we couldn’t find the right words to describe our feelings or experiences.
If you are one of them, we have certain words that can help you understand and explain your emotions well.
There are times when we’re going through so many emotional turbulences or changes in our lives that we want to pour it all out to someone.
And we fail.
It’s because the other person fails to resonate with your words and fails to connect with you.
And that drifts you apart from the conversation and makes you develop a state of emotional staticity.
What if suddenly you find that connection with someone within a few moments, with the exchange of just a few words?
It’s then when your emotional staticity turns into an emotional dynamism. The words then pour out of your mind like a swiftly flowing river.
The word ‘flashover’ describes that rare phenomenon when the other person actually connects with you. It’s like finding the key to the feelings that you had once locked inside.
Have you ever found yourself sitting in the metro or bus thinking that so many people have so many stories and how each story is running parallel to the other one?
Some of these parallel lives do sometimes meet and influence each other. At the same time, there are billions of lives that may never meet.
Your life is your story with you as the central character. The people surrounding you act as the supporting characters, each with a story of their own.
The word ‘sonder’ encompasses all your feelings regarding the similarities, differences, complexities, and commonalities of the billions of lives. It relates various people with multitudes of personalities.
In our fast-paced life, most of us hardly spare a few minutes to notice the little things.
But some of us do find time to see the flickering smile on people’s faces or wake up early to listen to the early morning chirping of birds.
We observe the pattern of leaves, the wind that sweeps away the fallen leaves at various angles during autumn. From these different images that beautifully portray the immense richness and beauty of life to each and everything that surrounds us.
Just soaking yourself in the beauty of your surroundings makes some people feel alive.
This word will help you express your search for profoundness in the very fragility of life.
Have you ever felt so happy that you want to soak in every moment of it before the feeling disappears or becomes a sort of an aftertaste?
We all want to savour the minutest moments of happiness, on hearing something good, the sense of the smallest achievement or even the happiness without any reason.
The word describes how you want to soak in that particular feeling to the deepest layers of your soul. Perhaps, you want to save the feeling to relive it during moments of despair.
These are some of the many words that will help you describe those ‘difficult to describe’ feelings. Yes, you can convey your deepest emotions through words.
So readers, henceforth, feel the connection that comes along while reading the meanings of words that will leave you feeling very relatable and understood.
They will resonate with your mind in a manner the daily English words rarely did.
