I was watching this motivational video, with excerpts from a Podcast Joe Rogan Experience, and Kevin Hart is speaking about how bad things happen to you, but they will eventually pass. He used a phrase with the word "but" that I didn't understand. He says:
"There's a payoff for bad eventually" "It can't be bad but for so long
What does the word "but" mean here?
Is it an intensive like in this TFD def? 2. Used as an intensive: Get out of here but fast!
Edit: this is the part when he says it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OLDBDpfPWjE&ab_channel=BetterSelf
