We’ll admit it – we have a soft spot in our hearts for Eva Gutowski. So when we caught wind that she may be dealing with a broken heart, our hearts broke a little as well. Not one to ever shy away from expressing herself, we’ve grown to respect Eva for always talking about these hard life experiences, and it’s not just us who appreciates it. With millions of young fans, just by being transparent and vulnerable, Eva is helping thousands and thousands of women and men who have gone through the same thing.
And though right now she is absolutely breaking the internet with empowered photos and captions like these:

So often we find ourselves in a hole because we begin to focus on what we don’t have. That very thought can consume a person until they go mad. I’m not an expert on happiness, but i think i figured out that for me, it’s all about my perspective on life. Each day i wake up and i make the conscious choice to either think “ugh, i wish i ate healthier and i wish i knew how to play the guitar and i wish, i wish, that i could make some new friends”, but instead i say “let’s get up and try a new smoothie recipe, and let me find someone to teach me something I’ve always wanted to learn, and let me say hello to a new person today and see if we have a connection”. Every moment you have is a moment to enjoy your life and take your life into your own hands. I guess that’s why i lay on a beach naked with the friends I’ve made from changing my perspective on life. I guess I lay naked in the sand to feel the life that the universe breathed into me, It’s the least i can do to thank it. ✨
Eva is also showing a side of herself that is helping many others to feel okay in their sensitivity, and their hearts. She is being honest about being vulnerable, about loving, and about giving so much of herself to others. However, she never discounts that — she only encourages people to open up no matter what they have been through, and to move forward even after being hurt. She is an incredible example of healing — putting her experiences to use and letting them inspire her to write music, and to create things that come from the deepest parts of who she is. She is exploring what ignites her, and she is setting an example for others who may not know how to pick up the pieces after losing someone they cared about.
If that isn’t the definition of an incredible role model, we don’t know what is.
