    What do you think about 'GALAU' ?

    Could you share your definition, perception, and/or interpretation of the Indonesian word 'galau'? And do we have a somewhat expression/translation of it in English? Thank you!

    my friend said its an "uneasy" feeling. i think thats because people cant describe or name what/how their feelings. as we know there are so many emotions such as angry, sad, disappoint, happy, etc and people should be aware of themselves feelings but sometimes they just dont know what the feelings name. "Galau" itself regard to unpleasant/negative feeling.

    KW is a red-brick trigger-happy, I can recall at least five regular users that have fallen victim to the monkey king's wrath.

    you wish to cry , but there are no tears that could come out. ...... so that is what's interpretated as galau. at least that is what i know.
    hope that help.. if you could find the correct english word for that, please share..
    How about melancholically confused?

    Back in my uni days, my crush queued right next to me in the Alfamart (the queue was from left to right) and after minutes she told her friend who was also shopping with her, "Hatiku galau nih". Not sure what she meant with that, maybe she wanted to flee with the things unpaid.

    The closest translation I can think of is "troubled". Galau is a state of confusion and turbulence that's sometimes likened to a storm (badai). The English word troubled is currently used to describe a state of mind, and one of its meanings is also turbulent (as in "troubled waters").

    If you google it, Galau means "a state of confusion". As an Indonesian, I'll say...it means: Unsettled, restless, and yes confused.

    Use in sentence e.g.: Pikiran saya sedang galau (My mind is unsettled).
