Grey's anatomy promoting emo-dark n cloudy generation of women?

I don't get it. Why is merideth displayed as the most downing and depressing person with no actual issue on her background (okay her mother worked alot and her parents were divorced, how many of you with that background is suicidal, emo, depressing and self loathing?)


She has a good job (we all know how well docs are paid for)

she has a fairy tale prince (who stuck around for her and pushed hard to be with her even when she tried to suicide, be unstable, unreasonable, keep him awake the night before surgery and getting kicked out of bed early in the morning cause Christina came along wth coffee, while he x-wife, all she did was cheat on him (i know it isn't minor but it isn't a mindf*ck like merideth's case), told her he wants to marry her when she is ready and build a house for her)


She was the one who was shouting at him "pick me, love me, choose me" when he had to decide between her and his x-wife, but the character is written to try and deprave herself of a wedding day? And considering her wedding day "just another day at work" ? I would understand the conception of "as long as i'm marrying the guy i love i don't care how and when and where" but the conception of "marriage is meaningless"? that's beyond me.


Are the writters stupid? can't they see how messed up that is?

ok that's just a little insensitive, don't you think?i haven't been there but being abbandoned by your father when you're six years old and had to stay with a suicidal, workaholic, in-love-with-another-man-to-death mother who couldn't care less about your existance and to whose standards you become a total failure, doesn't really sound like an ideal environment to grow up in. and as for her prince charming he LEFT her and chose his cheating wife. don't get me wrong i love MerDer and Derek as a character and i also adored Addison's but you cannot blame meredith for not trusting him. the girl's been through a lot in her life and still is, with having to accept her father's reappearance in her life and dealing with a sister she never wanted to have or know or even susan's death which i'm pretty sure costed her not only the relationship she had started building with her father but also her peace of mind. to me, it looks like she's dealing with everything just fine. give her a break.plus, she didn't say she didn't care about the marriage. she said that it's not the wedding she's excited about but being married. nothing wrong with that, makes sense.
don't mean to offend you or anything :P

I think that Meredith is way too exaggerated. Honestly, Ive had my father leave me when I was 6, come back 10 years later and leave me AGAIN when I was 16, and I am nowhere as messed up as she is, and thats taking into consideration that she is about 15/20 years older than me. It sometimes really irritates me how depressed she is too, how she cant forgive her father who is ASKING for forgiveness, and all of these other things. I dont know, for me its all too OTT. I dont understand how she cant get over things that happened to her 20 years ago. But then again, maybe Im just not a very emotional person... but watching her being depressed over things that to me seem not "so big" is very annoying. Sometimes I really do want to tell her to get over herself.

hey guys, maybe its not that hard for you that you're father have leave when you're still young... but how about that your mother attempted suicide in front of you, when you're still young?? how can you cope with that so easily? your father have left you with your emotionally unstable mother, how about that? instead of playing with other kids in the park, your stuck in the hospital raoming around even watching in the OR view room.. how do u think a 6 years old kid will carry that? seeing blood and sick people all the time??? you think thats easy? you're just saying that because you don't like meredith. but if you will analyze deeply what she've been through you will understand her situation... what happen to your childhood memories will hunt you over and over again especially if its a bad memories.. you are just saying that its easy because you don't go through that dilemmas in your life...

Honestly, big deal.
I was in a car crash as a kid and i saw dead bodies around (the other car hit a pedestrian as well) Yeah i was messed up for a while, but i got over it like all kids eventually do. (no childhood memories don't hunt you down cause you don't remember as much as you think you do from the era of 3+ till maybe 11-14, try recalling massive memories, you can't, you only recall fragments or flashes).
She is presented as the victim of her own self.
She should've been portrayed as a woman who rised above all, not a woman who tried to drown herself cause daddy didn't love her and mommy loved another man besides daddy.
