Dear Grey’s Anatomy fans,
As you know, this series is full of beautiful quotes and life lessons. Quotes help us develop our thinking, to get better and shape our view of life. Here are my 10 favourite quotes from Grey’s Anatomy!
1. “Adapt or die. As many times as we’ve heard it, the lesson doesn’t get easier. Problem is, we’re human. We want more than just to survive. We want success. We want to be the best we can be so we fight like hell to get those things. Anything else feels like death.” (Season 7, episode 21) Life is not easy, it’s a constant struggle. To get what we want, we have to give ourselves the means to achieve it. Are you a warrior or a victim? Choose your side and live the life you think you deserve. 2. “Change is constant. How we experience change, that is up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it. It can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment, we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment we can be born all over again.” (Season 7, episode 1) Don’t be afraid of change. Sometimes, changing is for the best. Changes boost you and give you strength to move forward. This is how we mature. 3. “I know this feels like there is just one person in the world you love and then you find somebody else and it just seems crazy that you were ever worried in the first place.” (Season 7, episode 16) Breakups are always painful, especially when you were madly in love with the other. Sometimes love is not enough and you should let him go for his own sake. We think that we will never recover from this trial but we are wrong. Whatever the pain you are experiencing, it will eventually decrease and disappear one day. Your heart will heal and you will be ready to give love and receive love from the person who is really made for you. 4. “Time flies. Time waits for no man. Time heals all wounds. All any of us want is more time. Time to stand up. Time to grow up. Time to let go. Time.” (Season 3, episode 1) Time is both our most precious ally and our worst enemy. Lost time is never caught up. It is for us to use it in the best possible way. Time allows us to get better, to rebuild our mental balance and move forward. We cannot go back. 5. “If you love someone you tell them, even if you’re scared it’s not the right thing, even if you’re scared it will cause all problems, even if you’re scared it will burn your life to the ground! You say it and you say it loud and go from there.” (Season 9, episode 2) You only live once so be brave enough to confess your feelings to the one you love. Life is too short to have regrets. And your worst regret would be that the other never know what you felt for him. 6. “We’re all gonna die. We don’t get much say over how or when. But we do get to decide how we’re gonna live. So do it. Decide. Is this the life you wanna live? Is this the person you wanna love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out, and decide.” (Season 10, episode 1) You are the master of your life. Only you can decide how you want to live it, who you want to become and with whom you want to share your life. You have to decide now because we have only one life. Live each day as if it was the last. 7. “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. There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us but there is always five. Denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance.” (Season 6, episode 2) Losing someone is always a painful experience. This is the most cruel trial of life and the most difficult to overcome because you cannot control grief, this is grief that controls you. When you shall have realized it, then you can start living again, heal your wounds and move forward. You will not be immune to relapse but you will have the keys to get out of it. Such is life. 8. “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?” (Season 11, episode 18) Our dreams and projects only belong to us. We are the only ones who can bring them to life. What is your definition of happiness? Are you happy now? If so, congratulations for realizing your dreams. If not, it’s still time to make adjustments. 9. “You deserve to be with somebody who makes you happy. Somebody who doesn’t complicate your life. Somebody who won’t hurt you.” (Season 3, episode 4) Love doesn’t have to be complicated or painful. If it brings you more sorrow than joy, you are not with the right person. 10. “Some things are worth fighting for.” (Season 4, episode 4) Nothing comes for free in life. But if you really want something or someone, it’s worthwhile to make efforts to get it. That’s it! And you, what are your favourite quotes from Grey’s Anatomy?
