16 Meredith Grey Voice-Overs That Keep Us Going

16 Meredith Grey Voice-Overs That Keep Us Going

For the dark and twisty.

The show "Grey's Anatomy" has caused laughter, tears and rage for all of us throughout the years that it has been on TV. For those who have binge-watched it on Netflix, the emotional lability that we feel is especially intense and definitely crosses over to reality. So why keep watching? I know that for me, it's the reality that comes with the multiple Meredith Grey voice-overs that start and finish the episodes, often giving me goosebumps. The following, while definitely not all-inclusive, are some of the major ones that I feel many people can resonate with. Whatever stage of life you are in there is nothing that a good Meredith Grey voice-over can't fix to help keep you going.

1. Season 1- "Save Me"

"The castle, well, it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important that it’s happy ever after just that it’s happy right now. See once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you. And once in a while people may even take your breath away."

2. Season 2- "The First Cut is the Deepest"

"At some point you have to make a decision. Boundaries don’t keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that’s how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them.

3. Season 2- "Thanks for the Memories"

"At the end of the day, the fact that we have the courage to still be standing is reason enough to celebrate."

4. Season 3- "Don’t Stand So Close to Me"

"No matter how much we hurt them, the people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping and sure sometimes close can be too close but sometimes that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need."

5. Season 4- "A Change is Gonna Come"

"Change, we don’t like it. We fear it but we can't stop it from coming. We either adapt to change or we get left behind. It hurts to grow. Anybody who tells you it doesn’t is lying. But here's the truth: sometimes the more things change, the more they stay the same. And sometimes, oh, sometimes change is good. Sometimes change is everything."

6. Season 5- "Losing My Mind"

"Don't wonder why people go crazy. Wonder why they don't. In face of what we can lose in a day, in an instant, wonder what the hell it is that makes us hold it together."

7. Season 5- "Now or Never"

"Did you say it? I love you. I don’t ever want to live without you. You changed my life. Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work towards it but every now and then look around. Drink it in cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

8. Season 6- "How Insensitive"

"No matter how thick-skinned we try to be, there’s millions of electrified nerve endings in there. Open and exposed and feeling way too much. Try as we might to keep from feeling pain, sometimes it’s just unavoidable. Sometimes that’s the only thing left, just feeling."

9. Season 7- "Start Me Up"

"It’s all anyone wants, right? Clean slate, a new beginning? Like that’s gonna be any easier. Ask the guy pushing the bolder up the hill. Nothing’s easy about starting over. Nothing at all."

10. Season 8- "If/Then"

"Your life is a gift. Accept it. No matter how screwed up or painful it seems to be. Some things are going to work out as if they were destined to happen, as if they were just meant to be."

11. Season 9- "Run, Baby, Run"

"The body doesn’t know the difference between nerves and excitement, panic and doubt, the beginning and the end. The body just tells you to get the hell out. Sometimes you ignore it. That’s the reasonable thing to do, but sometimes you listen. You’re supposed to trust your gut, right? When your body says run…run."

12. Season 10- "Get Up, Stand Up"

"Failure is inevitable, unavoidable, but failure should never get the last word. You have to hold on to what you want. You have to not take no for an answer and take what’s coming to you. Never give in, never give up. Stand up. Stand up and take it."

13. Season 11- "With or Without You"

"That’s why it’s so important for us to remind ourselves, for us to remember, just because we can live without something doesn’t mean we have to."

14. Season 11- "Only Mama Knows"

"They say we can repress our memories. I wonder if we’re just keeping them safe somewhere because no matter how painful they are, they are our most powerful possessions. They made us who we are."

15. Season 11- "How to Save a Life"

"She told me not to worry. She told me everything would be fine. The carousel never stops turning."

16. Season 12- "Family Affair"

"Maybe there are no boundaries if we choose not to see them. Maybe love is unlimited if we're just brave enough to decide love is limitless. Maybe there's enough happy for everyone."

So raise your glasses to Meredith Grey.

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.
