Well I don't know how to start this well to start off I suppose I recently started streaming on twitch around aug? And I only recently got up to 100 follows which was a big thing for me and I was so proud of it I get around 5-10 people viewing that enjoy my stream and talk. Here's we're the part I'm having problems with I have this I wouldn't say friend anymore because it seems like she always like to one up me, but from how she was in the past she was a giant egirl/ewhore which is someone that acts like there into gaming and post sexual pics on there twitter to attract other guys. Anyway she knows I've been wanting to stream for ever and how much it means to me and she always thought it was stupid and silly and now she recently started streaming as well and what took me 4-5 months to get 100 followers took her 2 days.. and she sure hasn't let me Hear the last of it she brags about how easy it is and how she gets up to 30-40 viewers and I can't help but feel like shit. It's not fair that I'm working my ass off and it's so easy for her because she has a crowd of guys wanting her nudes she's had her nudes leaked I don't know how many times and a video of her having sec with this guy... she acts so fake and makes her voice sound like a child's so the guys think she's cute. I don't know I'm kinda eh about streaming now she makes me seem like a joke :/ I just don't know what more I can do to prove I'm not a loser or failure... not to mention I'm steaming from a laptop so it's not the best quality therefore I've been saving to get a nice computer and then boom her father buys her a great computer to play games and stream with. Honestly just feels like everything for me is shit :(

First of all, she is not streaming the same content as you are, so you're results are incomparable. She is using sexual prowess to her advantage, but she's gotten herself into a trap, because now her fans will keep expecting more, and nobody will take her seriously. She may have a lot of followers, but they will keep wanting more and more, and eventually she will reach her limit, they will get tired of seeing the same thing over and over again, and she will keep the followers and lose views (which is even worse than losing the followers altogether).
Your channel will probably outlast hers if you consistently stream original, entertaining content. Your fans will continue to support you as long as you continue to live up to your standards you set for yourself in the beginning. The problem with your "friend" is that she set the bar too high, and eventually she will get exhausted and lose support. If you already know what you are doing, and are comfortable with doing the same thing for a long time, your viewers will know what to expect.
If you don't get what I'm saying: Let's say that both of you started off streaming video games once a day. If you continue to stream daily gameplay while she starts posting makeup tutorials twice a day, you will keep your support and she will lose hers.
Don't get discouraged, because I guarantee you that your popularity will increase much more rapidly when you upgrade your quality. Once your equality is on par, you will only have to focus on developing a good streaming personality and recording entertaining commentary. Be unique and interesting.1
