What are the best phrases to use to cheer up other people who are going through difficulties or frustrated by failure?

All I can think of:

Cheer up!

Is this even right in the above context?


These ones also work: bounce back, pull through, get over.

You didn't cook well but you can always bounce back!
Don't let this win you, you just need to pull through.
I know you're sick but I'm sure you can get over it.

tough it out

never say die
