Sonder(noun)

Have you ever had the sudden realisation that each and every one of us has our own world? That seven billion people experience each day in a different way?

Coined by an American writer called John Koenig, in the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, the word ‘sonder’ is defined as “the realisation that each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own”.

In short, sonder is the understanding that everybody has a story. We’re here to find yours.
