Lyrics from Back In Black-ACDC
Cause I’m back on the track
And I’m beatin’ the flackluck, just get out of my way\n\n\’Cause I\’m back,\n
Nobody’s gonna get me on another rap
So look at me now
I’m just makin’ my play
Don’t try to push your luck, just get out of my way
‘Cause I’m back,
You can fool all the people some of the time, and some of the people all the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time.
This phrase can be very comforting when you are dealing with toxic individuals. There may be moments when they appear to have everybody in their thrall but these moments do eventually pass. It is the nature of toxic people that they will eventually reveal themselves. Unfortunately this may sometimes appear to be too late for us but it is never too late for God. I realise this is cold comfort for people caught in traumatic situations with narcissists but your time will come. Unfortunately when it does arrive, it may feel like you have lost everybody you ever cared about but in most cases these people needed to go. I have a dear friend of thirty years, from whom I have not heard for several years. I have been very disappointed to realise that this friendship may have been contaminated but I accept that perhaps it was not what I had believed it was. The old sometimes needs to be swept away to make way for our bright, new futures.
Some of the world’s greatest creative epics have been created to deal with breakups.
It is a great way to process feelings in a constructive way. I have recently learned that Lindsay Buckingham and Stevie Nicks were often not on speaking terms when their greatest songs were produced. They were often taking potshots at each other through their music. They mention that at times they were basically screaming the lyrics at each other. This has produced some fantastic live work. Pain can be expressed in constructive rather than destructive ways. I love this version of The Chain. It is clear that the two of them are screaming the lyrics towards each other and the end results are incredible. Finding a constructive outlet for pain is a very positive step in healing. We cannot all display the musical genius of Stevie Nicks and Lindsay Buckingham. Nonetheless if we embrace pain, we may still be able to produce something great.
