When you look at your friends, it can be really easy to focus on all of the things that they have that you yourself don't. You'll notice other girls who have more money, better clothes, or more friends than you do. They may be skinnier than you, curvier than you, or have the hair type you've always wanted – but that's the thing. Everyone finds themselves valuing things we don't have, but we so rarely admit it.
When YouTuber and Me and My Grandma star Eva Gutowski stopped by the TWIST offices, we asked her to share the conversations she wishes more girls were having, and this is the exact phenomenon she brought up.
"I think girls should be talking more about what they love about each other," Eva tells us exclusively.
"I think it's so funny, me being a dancer? Growing up, my dance coach would film us, all of us on camera so we could watch it later and critique how we danced," she shares. "But I was just looking at how thin I looked on camera. I was like, 'oh my gosh, I literally look like a frickin' tree, and everyone else looks so good. I just look terrible on camera compared to my dance team.' I just always wanted to be bigger and curvier."
Eva knows this just goes to show everyone is obsessing over their own insecurities – but those stresses may not even make sense to others.
"Meanwhile, people were probably looking at me and thinking, 'I just want to be smaller,'" she adds. "I want the opposite and they want the opposite. No one ever talks about that. Once you realize everyone just wants something that they don't have, and your body's perfect, and it's not about what you see? ... That would help out a lot more."
