"Ain't no trip we can't get past"

Does anybody here know what it means?

This expression sort of resembles a saying in Spanish that goes something like this: "there is neither a sickness which lasts a hundred years nor an individual which can endure it".

Is my inference right or am I dead wrong here?

It seems to me that the expression is question is not a well-established one. I read/learnt it a long time ago here.


First off, that ain't no idiom.

See trip (TFD)

6. Slang
b. A certain way of life or situation: "deny that his reclusiveness is some sort of deliberate star trip" (Patricia Bosworth).

"Ain't no trip we can't get past," there's no situation that we cannot overcome, or sort of.

    I would think it's actually talking about definition 5 "a. A hallucinatory experience induced by a psychedelic drug", but with the same meaning that you mention – msam Jun 8 '18 at 9:49

    I assumed that it was "trip" as in "journey", myself. – nick012000 Jun 8 '18 at 10:01
