moodboard: katniss everdeen

“My spirit. This is a new thought. I’m not sure exactly what it means, but it suggests I’m a fighter. In a sort of brave way. It’s not as if I’m never friendly. Okay, maybe I don’t go around loving everybody I meet, maybe my smiles are hard to come by, but I do care for some people.”

If you ever feel sad just imagine that there’s an alternate universe where you are a fictional character and everyone absolutely loves you and your flaws. People make blogs and lovely edits of you and probably ship you with your best friend. They have your funny one-liners you thought nobody heard as their bios.

Even better, people make fanart of you. They pretend you’re a chief, or a scuba diver in some alternate universe of their own. Some people attempt to replicate your personality because they love it so much. Others dress as you for Halloween.

Imagine an alternate universe where you are so unbelievably loved from people you don’t know exist.

If you're feeling discouraged...

Just remember:

- Voldemort’s rise to power did not stoop Harry Potter from returning to Hogwarts.

- Katniss Everdeen rebelled against President Snow’s tyranny.

- The Winchester boys keep saving people and doing good no matter what big bad stands in their way.

- Tiny little Frodo stood tall against the mighty Sauron and his minions.

- Kirk and Spock made sure Kahn didn’t destroy worlds.

- Captain Jean-Luc Picard used empathy to take down the narcissistic Q.

- 4 strong willed kiddos refused to give up and defeated a faceless Demogorgon

You do matter. You are important. The road is not always easy, but love and persistence will win in the end.
