In the words of a 3 Doors Down song…”I’m going down in flames
I’m falling into this again”
The obvious interpretation is being in a relationship that is going nowhere, sucking the life out of both parties, dragging each person down to the point where they barely recognize themselves.
Another theory is falling in love…HARD and finally giving in, growing up, and realizing this person is the best thing that ever happened to you. Your attempts at fighting it have been shot down and now you’re ready to move forward.
These two hypothetical situations can be applied to any situation – whether it be work, family, friendship, or love. We all crash and burn and experience the proverbial “going down in flames” at some point in our lives. Embrace it. Learn from it. Come out of it a stronger person.
