Normally, Grey's Anatomy SUCKS. Normally it is a soap opera set in a hospital with enough manipulative emotional/crazy cases every week to keep me watching. And I have seen every single episode of the damn show, although I'm not going to add up how many minutes and hours of my life that turns out to be.

But Thursday's episode had a fantastic scene where Christina tries to explain to her new boyfriend what happened in her relationship with Burke. And I felt like the universe was telling me something, because somebody laid out exactly how I have felt in serious relationships. It goes beyond compromising, which is normal, to something darker and scarier. I wonder if the stronger the woman the bigger the desire jump into something, to not look before you leap, and to change. Change because you know that being independent is looked at as a "problem" for women, and because you know that you're going to have to work a little harder to be a little nicer than you are in situations that don't involve the heart. (I can't decide if it would be better or worse if this had nothing to do with strength and independence and is just how relationships work. If that's the case, I'm in trouble.)

Here it is.
