Can I just rant about Peeta Mellark for a moment, because I'm going to...

Peeta was the boy who…

  • Was never expected to survive his first games. 
  • …Yet outlived his entire family.
  • Came from an abusive home
  • …Yet still managed to be a loving and caring person
  • Survived two Hunger Games
  • Survived physical and psychological torture at the hands of the Captiol
  • Survived a war where he was often a target
  • Was hijacked into thinking the one person he cared for most in the world was the enemy and tried to kill them
  • Realized what the Capitol did to him and told those around him that he was a Capitol monster that needed to be killed. 
  • SURVIVED ALL OF THAT PSYCHOLOGICAL SHIT THAT WOULD MAKE LESSER MEN CURL UP INTO A BALL OF CATATONIA FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES
  • OVERCAME SAID PSYCHOLOGICAL SHIT
  • Went back to take care of the person he loved most and help them recover. 
  • Went back to a district that had hardly any home left for him and rebuilt an entire life there. 
  • Managed to overcome all of the shit he went through and lead a fairly happy life afterwards
  • Surviving all of that when even his own family had written him off for dead. 

Outlived many of his friends, outlived his family, had his home bombed, was tortured, survived two PTSD-inducing televised death matches and managed to lead a decent life and help someone else with their recovery…

If you try to tell me that Peeta Mellark is weak, you need to reevaluate your life and your choices.
