There's a reason Zoella has 10 million fans!

YouTube star Zoe Sugg (aka Zoella) shared an instantly relatable post with her Twitter followers Thursday – a photo of Sugg at age 14, at the beach in a bikini top and skirt.

"That time I grew boobs before anything else and hated it," she captioned the photo. "All bodies are beautiful. Wish I'd known that aged 14!"

The post has over 22,000 likes, and her followers thanked her for sharing a common feeling.

"[N]obody is perfect," wrote one commenter. "Everyone is unique in there own way love you zoe."

While others joked about their own chests – or lack there of – with Sugg teasing, "I think all my body fat was in my boobies at that stage of life! haha"

Fourteen was a tough year for Sugg – the vlogger told PEOPLE in August that she experienced her first anxiety attack at that age.

"I didn't understand what was going on," Sugg said. "When I first started struggling with it, there wasn’t a lot of information out there. Which was scary and stressful in itself."

Sugg still deals with debilitating anxiety and panic attacks, sometimes for days at a time. But she's working on saying yes more often, despite her condition.

"I've had so many incredible opportunities and experiences by saying yes, even when I've been nervous about something," Sugg said. "And in doing them, [I] have learned that I might be a bit braver than I thought."
