For better and for worse

For better AND for worse? … Sounds as if someone mixed up the idiom that people use to say when they marry, which actually is called “For Better OR For Worse”. To me, as a German, this sounds in some way strange that something shall turn better OR worse. It is like a black and white scenary. Life can be better, or life can be worse. Loving someone can be better, or loving someone can be worse. In German we have the frequent idiom “In guten wie in schlechten Zeiten” which literally means “In good times and in bad times likewise”. Therefore I decided to break the English idiom. I don’t want to say that something should be better or worse. I want to remember that a relationship isn’t always just better or worse, but both. Sometimes we have happy moments and we feel so happy for our relationship. And sometimes we have bad moments, we have quarrels. We can’t always have sunshine. We also have to accept the rain. Therefore we should accept good and bad times alike. FOR BETTER AND FOR WORSE!

In July 2013, I published my book “For better and for worse – A collection of poems” (epubli GmbH, Berlin 2013). The book contains a collection of poems, short stories and thoughts covering a writing period of one year, showing happy and romantic moments, but mostly desperate love. Why desperate love? I think, sometimes when someone really needs someone – no one shows up. We listen everywhere that the world is full of sorrow – but when someone needs us, we just disappear. People don’t care. Not all the people – but everyone might have had this experience before. Therefore, in certain ways, my book also considers human balance and indirectly deals with ideas and social critics about human relationships and treatment. Let’s all care more about the people we are dear with, and “give sunshine” to people who are just in need. Maybe, if one day, we are sad and lonely – who will support us? We will be glad for everyone who is our real true friend. Therefore, for the archievment and development of human kindness, let us be caring in advance without expecting to receive anything back.
