Superiority.
To think one is superior to others by pointing at their mistakes is wrong.
Being insightful about oneself – your own troubles - is a better choice. If everyone would think about their own wrongdoings, the world would be a better place.

Supremacy is not a real goal, self-knowledge is.

Youth.
It is not easy to be young.
Facing the same problems as everyone, without the protection of experience.
Oscar Wilde said once ‘Experience is simply the name we give our mistakes.’
Thinking that thought further; when you’re young you’ve not had the time to make enough wrong decisions to learn from them. To learn how to learn from mistakes.

You can envy the young, but it is not right to think life is easier on them.

Control.
Regrouping myself. I don’t know whether it is an illusion or reality, being in control.
One is not supposed to consciously experience being written out of the ‘daily soap’.

What I know for sure is that it is a decadent and luxurious habit to be busy with existential problems.

Celebrating life and those close to me is what matters.

Dark colours.
Denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance.
The five stages of coping with loss and grief according to K├╝bler–Ross.
I have the delightful possibility to go through the process again and again. Not all of them everytime; acceptance is rather hard to achieve and denial is not a reality for me any longer.

But dark colours are brightening. Every leaf unfolding on a branch is a victory of life.
Spring is in the air. Let the sun shine.
