Onism: the awareness of how little of the world you experience.
It actually annoys me how much of the world I’ll never see. There are so many things I’ll never feel. So many people I’ll never meet. It’s overwhelming to think about how many people there are in the world today. Each of them has their own stories. Each of them experiences unique things. The world is full of possibilities, full of paths that we can choose. Onism is the feeling that says “Why do we have to choose?” Picking one path means not getting to explore another. Making one choice means leaving another opportunity. It’s a little depressing to think about the meaning on its own, but it is magical to think that someone created a word for it.
Stay Curious ;)
