I agree, Cristina would do what she had to. I actually think she would be a great mother. But her goal is to be a great surgeon. Since she puts 150% of herself in everything she does, she knows she cant do both and has chosen career. I applaud her for standing by it despite it being a big part of the reason she loses the man she loves very much and now has this chasm between her and her best friend in the world. The truth is neither decision would be easy, motherhood or career…Cristina was going to lose something no matter what she chose. But she made her decision.
"This is why we are friends"
I dont understand why its so difficult to understand that Cristina just doesnt want children. She doesnt hate them or wish they didnt exist, she just knows herself well enough to know that that isnt the life for her. I appreciate her being strong and honest instead of just shooting out a few offspring that she’ll ultimately ruin so that they’ll be messed up adults who probably wouldnt do anything but repeat the cycle. Considering how fans, and characters who supposedly love her, react to her decision, it shows such depth, strength, and knowledge of self that she hasnt caved. I am boggled that this hasnt sank in after almost a decade as she hasnt wavered once.
