Okay, so, sometimes even the best of us make rash decisions.

Bad decisions.

Decisions we pretty much know we’re going to regret the moment, the minute, especially the morning after. I mean, maybe not regret, regret because at least, you know, we put ourselves out there.


Something inside us decides to do a crazy thing. A thing we know will probably turn around and bite us in the ass. Yet, we do it anyway.

What I’m saying is…we reap what we sow. what comes around goes around. It’s karma and, any way you slice it… karma sucks. Like I was saying payback’s a bitch.

One way or another our karma will leave us to face ourselves. We can look our karma in the eye or we can wait for it to sneak up on us from behind. One way or another, our karma will always find us. And the truth is, as surgeons, we have more chances than most to set the balance in our favor. No matter how hard we try we can’t escape our karma. It follows us home.

I guess we can’t really complain about our karma. It’s not unfair. It’s not unexpected. It just…evens the score.

And even when we’re about to do something we know will tempt karma to bite us in the ass…well, it goes without saying. We do it anyway. -George O’Malley, Grey’s Anatomy
