Mercedes Sieff (Rystall) on Carrie's passing:
"RIP Princess Leia. My childhood heroine....Humour and honesty were definitely two of her top character strengths! A perfect example of positive psychology and the merit in working with what's already strong versus focusing on what's going wrong. Far from being about ignoring our problems but rather by learning about and utilising our strengths on a daily basis, we can better acknowledge and face our weaknesses. We see them but just choose not to live in them and let them define us. Carrie openly talked about her addictions, mental health issues and anyone who met her always talked about how funny and humorous she was. Rather than focusing on her weaknesses and addictions she used her strengths of humour and honesty to publicly battle her demons and in turned helped others face their own. Instead of drowning in her issues, she became an inspiration and source of strength for others everywhere by using the qualities that were already innately strong in her to face her problems. Shine strong and bright into the universe Jedi Princess..."
