You Can’t Die…..Because I Love You…..
Last night lots of people watched an emotional season finale of Grey’s Anatomy. Last week we were hit with the shock of the plane crash but last night we finally got to see the fall out. And boy was there fall out.
The show’s people kept hinting around that one of the main characters would be dying leaving all of us on the edge of our seats wondering who and praying it wasn’t our favorite. Some were bargaining with the TV gods offering up certain cast members in exchange for sparing others. Then the show started and wasted no time taking the watchers on an emotional rollercoaster that slowed down long enough for everyone to see the one person almost NO one wanted to die. Lexie Grey.
A collective gasp could be heard all up and down the east coast then came the tears as Mark held her hand and told her how much he loved her. Regreting he hadn’t admitted it before. Lexie knew she was dying but Mark didn’t want to accept it and then just that fast she was gone. Time to pass the tissue. For months and months fans have wanted Lexie and Mark back together again and then to see that it wasn’t going to happen………….ever was just too much.
Mark held back his true feeling for Lexie for I don’t know how many seasons only to be left with a few moments and last breaths to tell her how he truly felt about her. Why??? Why do people do that to themselves? Why do we torture ourselves holding in true feelings for someone knowing all a long that no matter what gets put in their place will never be right? Why not just be honest? Okay so what, you argued and she said something you didn’t appreciate or he said something you didn’t like. Love, true love, is something that NEVER goes away. No matter how mad you may get. No matter how many arguments you may have. And in some cases no matter how many times you break up and get back together. So why fight it? Instead embrace it and nurture it. I know it’s just a show but had it been real life, they wasted so much time focusing on being apart and for what? People do it everyday in real life as well. We get mad, cuss at each other and tell each other never to call again all the while knowing that’s not how we truly feel. Then we move on to robotic relationships trying to fill a void. Or worse yet no relationship at all because we’ve shut down completely and won’t let anyone in.
If you love someone TELL THEM! You”ll know if the feelings are mutual and if they are what are you waiting for? And even if they’re not at least you were honest with them and yourself. By holding it in the person you are punishing is yourself in the long run. And you don’t want to be like Mark, holding your true love’s hand with only a few moments left trying to cram in a lifetime’s worth of love.
