Sonder

Sonder is defined as the realization that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own. Originally from the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, which has a lot more beautiful neologism definitions like this you might enjoy.

Sonder is not a "real" word as it is not in any of the standard dictionaries. It's in Urban Dictionary, which is pretty standard to me because the definition of Lena makes me sound like I have myself together, which I obviously do (some restrictions may apply).
