Cupid’s Advice:

Whether we like to believe it or not, celebrities can face some of the same feelings of insecurity as we do. We have some advice on ways to conquer these all-too-common feelings:

1. Try not to always blame yourself: If you’re having a severe case of the Monday’s and can’t seem to accomplish anything at work, think of other reasons that may be affecting your productivity. Instead of blaming it on your inadequacies, decide if it could’ve been a poor night’s rest causing this or a busy weekend that drained your energy levels.
