THE DAY YOU REALIZE HOW FAR YOU’VE COME

Today you are successful because you woke up even when you didn’t want to. Today, you are beautiful because you didn’t try to burn your naked body’s reflection in the mirror. Today you realized that you had as many flaws as anyone else but you stayed alive anyway. Today you are strong because you carry a history of wars and battle scars with you but you don’t let it burden you. You chose today to heal. You can heal without leaving your bed. You will walk past a bridge without jumping. You will shave without the urge to bleed. You will realize that the only way to suffocate your demons is by exposing them to fresh air. This is what taking control of your life feels like. This is what finally having strength feels like.

  • peeta’s amputation was erased in the movies
  • our media is acting exactly like the capitol
  • katniss’s prep team aren’t real characters in the movies

things about the hunger games franchise that shouldn’t anger you

  • "katniss is so annoying and whiny and cold and weak!!"

Also

  • Katniss was whitewashed in the movies.

This is ableism.
