I'm completely new to origami, but I'm trying really hard to make a bunny. I really wanna make one. I've been watching this video on a traditional one

and I'm really struggling with the squash-fold bit. I just don't understand it. I keep trying to watch the video over and over again, but I just don't get it.

http://www.origami-instructions.com/origami-squash-fold.html#:~:text=What%20is%20a%20squash%20fold,origami%20models%20on%20this%20site. In this example it makes total sense and I get it, but no matter how many times I watch the first video I linked, it just makes absolutely zero sense to me. How the fuck does this work? Someone please help me, I'm trying really hard to get it but I just don't understand.
What about it are you having trouble with? Maybe try finding a friend IRL who can help you as I think having someone else in person might be your next best bet. I think the guides you show are good, however some learn best by seeing them done in person. Also making sure your folds are perfect, and running your fingers over each crease multiple times makes more complex folds easier. Hope this helps OP.
Thank you, i'm brand new. I just don't understand how that squash-fold works. I don't know how it's meant to bend inwards and if I bend the entire piece of paper or not the bit under it (If that makes sense, like the entire thing or just the little fold i'm squash-folding). I think i'd probably be able to do it really easily if I had someone to show me in person
