    Being a teenager is not easy and neither is growing up trans, so 14-year-old Jazz Jennings knows a thing or two about picking yourself up when you're not feeling 100% the best you can be. The YouTuber, and now TLC star, stopped by BuzzFeed to rapid-fire sketch some suggestions (seriously, you've got to check out her art) for all your terrible, horrible, no good, very bad days.

    1. Even if you don't feel like it, try flashing those pearly whites.

    2. Listen to your favorite song and jam out — put it on repeat if necessary.
