Watching Grey’s Anatomy

This is its third season and I just had time for the season premiere. It’s a great show; I’d give my time for the 45 minute reminders on what life is about. The brittleness of life; the happiness and pains of being in a relationship; meeting or adjusting expectations; your loved ones may leave you without any prior notice, and death isn’t the cause; people may swoon over your achievement which you thought is insignificant…

We can’t stop change from coming, we either adapt to change or we get left behind. It hurts to grow, and anyone who tells you it doesn’t is lying. But sometimes, the more the things change, the more they stay the same. And sometimes, change is good. Sometimes, change IS everything.

Can’t help but tear that ever slightly. Gotta get better control over my tear gland one day, I swear.

  1. Another quote from the second episode:

    The thing about addiction is it never ends well. Because eventually, whatever it is that was getting us high, stops feeling good and starts to hurt. Still, they say you don’t kick the bad habit till you hit rock bottom. But how do you know when you’re there? Because no matter how badly a thing is hurting us, sometimes, letting it go hurts more.

  2. Yet another quote, this time from episode three:

    The truth is painful. Deep down nobody wants to hear it, especially when it hits close to home. Sometimes we tell the truth because the truth is all we have to give. Sometimes we tell the truth because we need to say it out loud to hear it for ourselves. And sometimes we tell the truth because we can’t help ourselves. And sometimes we tell them because we owe them at least that much.

    Deafening silence at the end of the episode except for the sound of a gulp – perfect.

  4. Wow… I started watching Grey’s Anatomy in the second season. Liked how they planned every episode, tying some medical case to a personal problem that a character may have. Definitely liked the way each episode ends. Great quotes, always.

  5. Forgive and forget. That’s what they say. It’s good advice, but it’s not very practical. When someone hurts us, we want to hurt them back. When someone wrongs us, we want to be right. Without forgiveness, old scores are never settled… old wounds never heal. And the most we can hope for, is that one day we’ll be lucky enough to forget.

  6. Haven’t really have time for this show anymore. Anyway here goes:

    Deep down, everyone wants to believe they can be hardcore. But being hardcore isn’t just about being tough. It’s about acceptance. Sometimes you have to give yourself permission to not be hardcore for once. You don’t have to be tough every minute of every day. It’s okay to let down your guard. In fact there are moments when it’s the best thing you can possibly do… as long as you choose your moments wisely.

    When was the last time I felt so comfortable that all my defense and masks fall? Right now, the closest I have it happening is in my head. But even then, it only almost happened. I have to choose my moments wisely.

  7. As doctors, we know more about the human body now than at any point in our history. But the miracle of life itself, why people live and die, why they hurt or get hurt is still a mystery. We wanna know the reason, the secret, the answer at the back of the book… because the thought of our being all alone down here is just too much for us to bear. But at the end of the day, the fact that we show up for each other, in spite our differences, no matter what we believe, is reason enough to keep believing.
