Why? Because...

I burst into tears watching TV last night ... again ... not out of saddness but out of that "I've-totally-been-there" connection. The character was crying, so I was crying. Grey's Anatomy does it to me almost every time I remember to watch. The scene...

Alex: "Why are you here helping me after what I did?" [he cheated on her]

Izzy: "Because... it's what JESUS WOULD FREAKIN' DO!"

Nearly every one of my exes has asked me that question in some form or another and my answer was always "because it's what I do." I can't say I do it because it is what Jesus would do, mostly because religion and faith are still a huge jumble of confusion in my head, but it's the same idea. They lie, they cheat, they screw me over and, even in my anger, I'm there to help them when they really need it...because that's what good people do. Because I can't sit by and let someone fail when I know I can keep them from failing. Because in the end, my pain is temporary and being able to look myself in the mirror every morning is for good. Because maybe, just maybe, if I keep putting little bits of good into the world, they willl add up and someday it won't be such a painful thing to get through.

I thought the crying scene with Izzy was a little bit too much drama. I mean how long did they date? Were they even dating? I understand it pissed her off but let's move on.

reminds me of chris farley questioning paul macartney on SNL, "in a day in the life, you said, in the end the love you make is equal to the love you that true??"

you reap what you sow, that's from the bible but it fits, doesn't it? you're doing what jesus would do, complete with the total lack of self righteousness. good job!!

Heavy duty stuff, but I can relate.
