Don’t wonder why people go crazy. Wonder why they don’t. In the face of what we can lose in a day, in an instant, wonder what the hell it is that makes us hold it together. – Meredith Grey.
This quote caught my attention while watching Grey’s Anatomy. Catchy quote I thought but then it started to make a lot of sense. I mean, with life so complex with its twists and turns and all the curve balls thrown at us, we really should go crazy at least once a month.
You think you’re a good person and don’t deserve the shit life is serving you but life doesn’t give a crap. You just gotta find a way, anyway to deal with it. To not cave. To stand and fight back or just stand and endure.
I think of the stuffs that I have been through and It’s amazing really how I’ve survived for this long. And this is how it is for most of us if not all of us. Each of us have been through some harrowing times that could have taken our sanity. Losing a loved one. Lack. Bullying and maltreatment. Sexual assault. All that you have, that you’ve worked for, everything taken away from you in the blink of an eye. You name it. But somehow we don’t. We manage to hold it together. We stand and hold on to our sanity. We refuse to go mad. And I wonder, what the hell is it that makes us hold it together?
For me, it’s hope. It keeps me sane. Hope that things will get better. It just has to and I don’t want to be crazy when that time comes.
Day 5. Impressive I must say. I hope the procrastinating gene doesn’t get activated next week and I get a lot of time on my hands to write something longer and better.
