When the Dolan Twins aren't jetting off around the world on sold out tours and taking some of the most wonderful topless Instagram posts we've ever seen, it sounds as though they've been going through a truly tough time. In a brand new video uploaded to their joint channel, Ethan and Grayson have opened up about dealing with the stress and anxiety that comes with a hectic YouTube lifestyle in addition to their father's recent cancer diagnosis.

Whilst they may only be 16-years-old and appear to be living the life of our wildest dreams, things aren't quite so perfect on their side of the camera. As Grayson explains, "recently, things have been getting a little stressful. We both strive for perfection and when we can't get things perfect, bad things happen. Stress, more stress and anxiety, I'm a very anxious person". You can hear more of their confessions in the video below:

Grayson also shares more details about the anxiety he has to deal with on a daily basis; "Sometimes I have anxiety attacks so bad that I fall on the floor and I feel like I can't breathe and I feel like I'm gonna die". Ethan, on the other hand, has a message he wants all of their fans to remember when it feels like life is keeping you down; "Positives are everywhere, you might just have to look a little bit harder for them".

Following the video and their emotional talk about their father's recent cancer diagnosis, fans of the Twins took to Twitter to start the trend #PrayForSean. The dedication to Ethan and Grayson's father saw fans across the planet send their love and support to the troubled family, in addition to thanking them for being so open and honest about their problems, citing that it has helped them overcome their own personal issues.
