The world can be a harsh place, and it’s easy to forget your worth. Sometimes, no matter how great you feel when you start your day, things happen that test your confidence.

It’s reassuring to know that even celebrities have moments where they feel down. To help you turn your day around, here is some advice from our favorite A-listers:

1. “I believe in waking up every day and taking a good step toward health and honoring your body. Remember that you are young, beautiful, individual, and unique—that is worth everything in this world.” —Troian Bellisario, Seventeen

2. “I wanna say also it feels good to be chosen, but there was a time in my life that I was not chosen. I was the opposite of chosen because I was different, and I think I wanna make sure that everyone knows that what makes you different right now, makes you stand out later in life. So you should be proud of being different, you should be proud of who you are.” —Ellen Degeneres, Teen Choice Awards

3. “‘Am I taking care of myself in a healthy way?’ ‘Am I respecting myself and being responsible?’ And over and over, I answer yes to that question. Then I remind myself to be kind to myself, and as slightly ridiculous as it may sound, to treat myself in the same gentle way I’d want to treat a daughter of mine. It really helps.” —Emma Stone, Seventeen

4. “If you’re a young person, like I used to be, and you’re at home watching and you’re being called weird, or you’re being called different, or whatever the hell you’re being called, I’m here tonight to tell you, your critics do not count. Their words will fade. You won’t.” —Justin Timberlake, iHeartRadio Music Awards Acceptance Speech

5. “Your self-worth is determined by you. You don’t have to depend on someone telling you who you are.” —Beyoncé, GQ

6. “I had to stop going to auditions thinking, ‘Oh, I hope they like me.’ I had to go in thinking I was the answer to their problem. You could feel the difference in the room immediately. The greatest lesson I learned was that sometimes you have to fake it. And you have to be willing to fail.” —George Clooney, Parade

7. “It takes a lot of bravery to be authentic and honest and to take that social mask off in order to connect with another human being. So much of what makes us who we are is smoothed away online. And what truly connects us is the wrinkles, not the smoothness.” —Taylor Schilling, Elle Canada
