They say death is hardest on the living. It’s tough to actually say goodbye. Sometimes it’s impossible. You never really stop feeling the loss. It’s what makes things so bittersweet. We leave little bits of ourselves behind, little reminders, a lifetime of memories, photos, trinkets, things to remember us by… even when we’re gone.
I have to believe there’s a way. There has to be a way to step off the carousel. To start again. To start afresh. There has to be a way to leave all my ghosts behind. It’s a choice. It’s a choice I’m making to move forward. To move past this. I can do that. All I have to do is begin. - Meredith Grey | 11x22.
“Picture the life you dreamed of living, the person you pictured being with. Picture the job you dreamed you’d have. Are you living the life you envisioned for yourself? Are you who you wanted to be when you grew up?
How’s the view? Do you like what you see? Think back again to when you were little. Are you living the life you pictured for yourself? Or are you still dreaming of something bigger?”
Meredith Grey (Season 11, Ep 18 - When I Grow Up)
“I mean, what the hell is going on? What’s the point? I mean, is there a reason for this? Because if you can think of a reason, any reason at all why the universe is so screwed up, and random and mean… Now it’d be an amazingly good time to tell me because I really need some answers.”
