It’s been a while since I shared something from the Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows. Today’s word is liberosis and is defined like this:
n. the desire to care less about things – to loosen your grip on your life, to stop glancing behind you every few steps, afraid that someone will snatch it from you before you reach the end zone – rather to hold your life loosely and playfully, like a volleyball, keeping it in the air, with only quick fleeting interventions, bouncing freely in the hands of trusted friends, always in play.
My desire for liberosis is one of the reasons I continue my personal growth journey in the hopes that I can learn how to hold my life loosley and playfully. Also trusting that I don’t have a moment of kairosclerosis (click on the link to find out what kairosclerosis means!)
How would you use liberosis in a sentence? 😂 I’d love to hear your take on the word!
