WE’RE NOT SHINY, HAPPY PEOPLE

A part of me hopes I don’t have Meredith Grey’s dark and twisty side hidden deep inside me. It manifests itself, once in a while. Sometimes in whole, sometimes in bits.

But it was hard to avoid it last night and I wasn’t the only one who saw it and felt it.

Meredith Grey: Ask most people what they want out of life and the answer is simple – to be happy. Maybe it’s this expectation though of wanting to be happy that just keeps us from ever getting there. Maybe the more we try to will ourselves to state’s of bliss, the more confused we get – to the point where we don’t recognize ourselves. Instead we just keep smiling – trying to be the happy people we wish we were. Until it eventually hits us, it’s been there all along. Not in our dreams or our hopes but in the known, the comfortable, the familiar.
