7 Emotions People Feel But Can’t Explain

Do you ever feel something that you can’t really describe or put into words?

Like the peaceful feeling when you’re indoors and there’s a thunderstorm going on outside? Or rather the frustration of photographing an exquisite scenery but then realizing there are hundreds of other similar pictures in existence?

There are actually words to describe these emotions, some taken from John Koenig’s The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows.
