grey grief

on April 28, 2014

I have been re-watching season 5 and 6 of Grey’s Anatomy lately. I had remembered a little of the story line and for some reason was drawn to watching again.

And after hearing this at the end of an episode, I knew why.

“Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.

So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.

The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can’t control it.

The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.

And let it go when we can. 

The very worst part is that the minute you think you’re past it, it starts all over again.

And always, every time, it takes your breath away.”

    It’s as though you could have authored that quote from the show, Kari. Beautiful reflection on grief. Love you!
