Sonder n.

I’m adopting this from The Dictionary of Obscure SorrowsIf you think about it profoundly ,that’s absolutely remarkable. It’s detailing about those “extras” in the background of our routines and a realization that each of them has their own intricacies. I believe, sort of an empathy is manifested through this, only if you think deeply about it. God bless =)

sonder n. “The realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk.”
