Don’t worry about me, I’m gonna make it alright
Got my enemies crossed out in my sight
I take a bad situation gonna make it right
In the shadows of darkness I stand in the light
Fall Back Down – Rancid
I love this song. I relate to it differently than the lyrics are meant (it’s about Tim Armstrong’s divorce and how his friends helped get him through it). Regardless, the song still resonates for me. I have had my ups and downs in life. Those horrible bottoms where I never thought I would be able to come back out, but I do. The support of my family and friends has always helped get me through, but more importantly, I empowered myself to get through my darkest hours.
I am feeling strong and happy, and not down in the dumps by any means. Just listening to this song reminded me that I have friends and family who support me, but I am the one who has the power to “take a bad situation, gonna make it right”.
