-59- Torschlusspanik


Noun. From German.

“The fear that the opportunities in life presented to you will diminish as you grow old”


The direct translation of torschlusspanik is ‘closing gate panic,’ which I think goes great for that feeling you get when you arrive late at the airport and your hearts going a mile a minute in the fear that the plane’s going to go without you!

However, apparently it means that other thing above.
