The show is called "Grey's Anatomy" for a reason. Meredith is a compassionate and relatable character who has a self-proclaimed "dark and twisty" side to her. She's evolved immensely throughout the seasons, from an impulsive intern to a now very composed resident. Even though her life with Derek is now on track, after the whole baby Zola drama and issues with Derek's Alzheimer's trial, she still is hesitant to choose a specialty. The main reason for her hesitation in choosing a specialty is her fear of becoming too much like her mother Elis Grey. Her mother was a legend and also had an affair with The Chief. In earlier episodes, Meredith struggled with her mother's advanced Alzheimer’s.

Meredith and Cristina are best friends and have been since the beginning of their internship. They've helped each other through countless struggles over the years. Christina was the first to know, in season 1, that Meredith had been sleeping with her boss Derek. I find Meredith, at times, too impulsive (say asking the gunman in season 7 to shoot her instead of Derek !) but she seems to have matured a little in recent years and really learnt her lesson after almost being fired for tampering with Derek's trial. All in all, I must admit that I am a big fan of the MerDer relationship.
