Your Relationship with yourself and the connection to the song, “The Best Of You!”

“Your relationship with yourself sets the tone for every relationship.”

I have to confess my life is always connected to lyrics. So, let me take you on a weird and wonderful tour of my mind. My relationship with David Grohl started when I was 13 year’s old. I will not give my age away but I saw him drumming for Nirvana and this is all you need to know.

When I think about my relationship with myself. I was always told by other’s working in the meat grinding world  the following: “go the extra mile“…. “stretch myself“…. “push myself“….”apply myself“…. “further“….”harder“… “don’t give up!”….. “you can do it!”

They would treat me like I was different and stupid. Well, even my family has. The question is did I deserve it? Did I behave in a manner which meant you would always behave towards me in a very harmful manner?

Pensive moods sway my mind as I listen to “The Best of you” by the Foo Fighter’s:

I’ve got another confession to make
I’m your fool
Everyone’s got their chains to break
Holdin’ you

Were you born to resist or be abused?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

Are you gone and onto someone new?
I needed somewhere to hang my head
Without your noose
You gave me something that I didn’t have
But had no use
I was too weak to give in
Too strong to lose
My heart is under arrest again
But I break loose
My head is giving me life or death
But I can’t choose
I swear I’ll never give in
I refuse

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Has someone taken your faith?
Its real, the pain you feel
You trust, you must
Confess
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Oh…

Oh…Oh…Oh…Oh…

Has someone taken your faith?
Its real, the pain you feel
The life, the love you’d die to heal
The hope that starts the broken hearts
You trust, you must
Confess

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?

I’ve got another confession my friend
I’m no fool
I’m getting tired of starting again
Somewhere new

Were you born to resist or be abused?
I swear I’ll never give in
I refuse

Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Has someone taken your faith?
Its real, the pain you feel
You trust, you must
Confess
Is someone getting the best, the best, the best, the best of you?
Oh…

As really –  David Grohl has written this in question format. So, as I am singing; I am asking myself those questions. It is really a juxtaposed effect, or, a subliminal message to yourself.

Now I have made a connection and you see the relationship with yourself, is also, defined through “The Best Of You”.

My family really do not comprehend me at all – I feel sad at times; as this is the best of me. I am really pleased within myself to be able to make connections so vividly.

I am very pleased I can smile.
