Home > Silent Shouts > Antidisestablishmentarianism


I thought of this word today at work, when I was looking out the window and feeling rather… disestablished. What would be a good word to describe that feeling or condition, in which someone feels no sense of belonging or security, especially when quitting is not an option? Disintegrated? Not sure, because on the other hand I have “un-disestablished”, which sounds a little broken, don’t it?

You know, on a totally random note, friendship, like maturity, can never be judged by a factor of time. Just because you’ve been friends with someone for 15 years does not mean they’re your “friends” — I don’t believe in that concept anyway; it’s naive and un-establishing.

Which brings me to the original point of this brain-sneeze, the word that’ll work here is Anti-dis-establishment-arian-ism. Why? Because it friggin’ works, that’s why. To be against breaking ties is to be antidisestablishmentarianist, to be against disruption of peace is to be antidisestablishmentarianist, it is very antidisestablishmentary of you if you’re an antidisestablishmentarianist. It’s a good thing; it’s wholesome, it’s not at all redundant, and I believe in it. That’s as good a reason for you to behold.

    Nothing is forever. After a long wait life might present you with the right opportunities for you. Maybe not “right” but at least something that feels right. I wont even attempt to remind you of your qualifications because I know too well that we all go through these ugly times when we feel disestablished. Here’s to a smoother ride and transition.
