Rekindled friendship

This semester I started watching Grey's Anatomy on netflix. As many of you know, the show is about a teaching hospital and all the actors are doctors, from interns to attendings they have it all. I didn't know when I decided to start watching the show that I would not only become attached (despite my hate for blood) but also learn so much by the characters. The main character is Meredith Grey. Her mom was also a surgeon and so Meredith basically grew up in the hospital. She is my inspiration for this blog actually. I am now on season seven and Meredith and her best friend Christina Yang have just been through a falling out... well sorta. Christina is going through a tough time and Meredith is trying her best to pull her out of it. This shows true friendship. Meredith and Christina are there for each other no matter what.  "We're friends, real friends, and that means no matter how long it takes, when you finally decide to look back, I'll still be here." - Meredith Grey

Friendship has two sides. Friendship is not always happy. Friendship has its ups and downs but real friends will be there for you no matter what it is. A true friend is your "person". This person or persons will cry with you, encourage you, laugh with you, celebrate with you. They hate the same people no matter how silly the reason. They hold your hand, make late night donut runs, they are the glue that holds you together. But then you have to be there for that person too. Even if they make you so mad you want to cry.

Sometimes being someone's person is the hardest thing to do. They don't always make it easy for you. They might not want to tell you wha exactly is happening to them but even in those circumstances, you are by their side.

Being someone's person includes the following:

-Dance parties
Always be ready to dance away the stress of the situation.

-Late night conversations
Yes, you may have to talk them off the wall at midnight but hey, they'll do it for you too. Sometimes this can be out at lunch, going to grab coffee, or even if they come over and get in bed with you. Be there for them no matter when or where.

-Eating everything in sight
Okay, is this one really even a problem? You say food, I'm in.

-Endless encouragement
This is self explanatory but remember, your person is the best one out there and you probably don't tell them enough how much they mean to you.
