Subtitles section Play video Print subtitles Growing up I loved being a twin. I have a twin sister named Hope, And, she was my best friend. My parents never had to worry about us being separated or being alone Because, we had each other. We'd make sure we were staying out of trouble And we played by the rules and we'd have fun. We have everything in common We have the same friends, we'd have the same dolls, we had the same room! We did everything together Everyone gets so interested in twins. Because they ask: "Oh it must be so cool having a twin" Or: "I've always wanted to have a twin!" But as I got older I realized being a twin Wasn't exactly as fun as I thought it as going to be We started... spreading apart She started becoming popular, started wearing... the latest trends. Started having so many friends, joined the theatre club Started being involved in the school and going out every night And partying. And then there was me, kinda Was alone Was in her shadow And as twins we were expected to have the same things If she got a car I would get a car If she got straight A's, everyone will look at me and expect me to get straight A's, but... I fell into a depression. Isolation, Anxiety. I felt so horrible about myself. Because my parents would just brag about her At every family reunion and then once they got to me... I just felt like they had nothing to talk about... I grew jealous of my twin sister Someone who's been by my side and yet Now I felt like she was above me So I started wearing trends, I started trying to make those kinds of friends But it never worked because it wasn't me And I hate that it took years to realize this But finally I had to look in the mirror and think to myself I'm glad for being me I'm glad of being an outcast I'm glad of not being into those styles I'm glad about having my friends with their own personnality Away from her's. And even though we're both In completely different places in our life Me still recovering from my own depression And her going to college I know we both still love each other I know, for a fact, that no matter what, I will always have someone to talk to Because she still is my twin sister.
