A Word for Unexplainable Longing

Have you ever experienced a feeling of longing or yearning that’s difficult to put into words? The Portuguese have a term for it – “saudade.” This word refers to a melancholic longing for something that may not even exist.
The concept of “saudade” speaks to the human desire for connection and meaning in our lives. It reminds us that sometimes the things we long for the most are intangible, and that our yearning for them can be a source of both joy and pain.
