“At the end of the day, there are some things you just can’t help but talk about. Some things we just don’t want to hear, and some things we say because we can’t be silent any longer. Some things are more than what you say. They’re what you do. Some things you say because you have no other choice. Some things you keep to yourself. And not too often, but every now and then, some things simply speak for themselves.”—Meredith Grey
“Pain. You just have to ride it out, hope it goes away on its on. Hope the wound that caused it heals. There are no solutions, no easy answers. You just breath deep and wait for it subside. Most of the time pain can be managed, but sometimes the pain gets you when you least expect it, hits way below the belt and doesn’t let up. Pain. You just have to fight through, because the truth is you can’t outrun it… And life always makes more.”—Meredith Grey<3
“Pain comes in all forms. The small twinge, a bit of soreness, the random pain. The normal pains we live with everyday. Then there’s the kind of pain you can’t ignore. A level of pain so great that it blocks out everything else… Makes the rest of your world fade away, until all we can think about is how much we hurt. How we manage our pain is up to us. Pain. We anesthetize , ride it out, embrace it, ignore it, and for some of us the best way to manage pain is to just push through it.”—Meredith Grey
“My aunt would say, “say when”, and of course, we never did. We don’t say when because there is something about the possibility of more… more tequilla… more love… more anything… because more is better.
There’s something to be said about the glass half full. About knowing when to say when. I think it’s a floating line, a barometer of need and desire. It’s entirely up to the individual and depends on what’s being poured. Sometimes all we want is a taste. Other times there’s no such thing as enough… The glass is bottomless and all we want is more.”—Meredith Grey~
