A Tribute to the First Badass Princess I Knew

I don’t really have anything I can say that other people haven’t about the passing of Carrie Fisher. I find it hard to believe that the world can continue existing without her in it – it seems wrong.

She is the first princess I knew who was also a badass – if I were a princess, that is the kind of princess I’d want to be. 

But Carrie Fisher was also a sufferer of chronic illness and mental illness, and she brought so much inspiration and hope to others. She fought off the demons and won, and that is something I aspire to as well.

BuzzFeed put together a list of things she said about living with her illness, and so many of my favorite quotes were included that I wanted to share it with you, too, if you haven’t seen it already.

 

What about Carrie most inspired you?
