The quote is part of what Derek tells Meredith when giving her reasons why he wanted to spend the rest of his life with her.
If there is a crisis you don't freeze, you move forward.This quote really hit home for me as it would for anyone who has survived a major loss. It is a beautiful testament to survivors. "You get the rest of us to move forward, because you've seen worse."
You get the rest of us to move forward, because you've seen worse.
You've survived worse and you know--we'll survive too.
I loved the quote so much that I went back to listen to the episode so I could write it down and then had it put on a mug for myself.
I can't help but think how many times in the past this would have inspired me to keep moving forward. Now I can keep it on my desk as a reminder to keep going.
