We’ve all had days when we don’t feel too great about ourselves physically; the hair is flat, the eyes quite baggy, and the stomach bloated. But for those trying times, childhood Lena Dunham had some extraordinary methods to rid the mind of exacting self-critiques. Marie Claire UK reports:

“This could very easily be taken out of context, and I think it’s funny now, but I remember looking in the mirror as a kid and it would be like for an hour at a time, and I’d be like: ‘I’m just so beautiful. Everybody is so lucky that they get to look at me. And of course that changes as you get older, but I may have held on to that little-kid feeling that was me alone in my bathroom.'”

We think you’re beautiful, too. How about a flashback to elementary school in Girls season three?
