Emilia Clarke has some advice for her 18-year-old self, but it probs relates to you, too.

The Game of Thrones star talks her younger self through major life moments, including sunscreen, dreams, relationships and body image.

“18-year old Emilia, I’m going to quote this Sunscreen song at you, I know you know it. You are not as fat as you think you are,” Clarke says in a video for Teen Vogue.

“There are some women who look some way, and there are other women who look another way. Like a whole other way. And the way that the other women look, people love. Because they look like women.”

At 29, she also thinks breakups and failures are part of the fabric of life.

“There are going to be times when someone says, that dream that you’ve had, your entire life, the moment that someone says that’s impossible, it is,” she says. “I know you didn’t get into drama school this time around, but, you will. You have the strength to overcome it.”

“You’re going to feel some serious heartbreak,” she says. “You’re going to feel some proper things, and the reason why it’s going to hurt so much it’s because, that heartbreak is going to make you doubt yourself. You put yourself out on a plate, and you bare everything, and someone says that they don’t really like that, so that makes you feel like you’re not worth it.”

“But you are, and there are lots of people who are going to tell you that you’re worth it. The people in your life when all the lights are off, the real people you really love, just hug them like everyday.”
