Come on down, Meredith Grey!

It’s no secret the protagonist of hit TV show Grey’s Anatomy has had her ups and downs. After all, she did try to drown herself in Season 3 and has since had to deal with a lot of death, destruction and (probably) post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

This quote sums up nicely the importance of accepting those days and moods that aren’t euphoric – or even mildly cheerful. If therapy has taught me anything it’s that every feeling is valid, and little good can come from squashing down your true emotions to maintain a happy facade.

It’s okay to feel however you feel today. Better to be grumpy and authentic than imploding behind a false grin.
