This quote came from Grey's Anatomy Season 5's Episode 19. It is probably one of my favorite quotes on surviving a crisis. 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. 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.
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."
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.
