when i’m with you, i act different. in a good way. i smile more and laugh more. i don’t have to pretend everything is okay when it’s really not. with you, i can drop the fake smile and put on a real one. i don’t feel hurt and alone when i’m with you. instead, i feel safe and loved. you’re easy to talk to, and you listen to me. i don’t have to worry about holding back with you. i don’t feel self conscious. i don’t ever feel insecure or sad. you show me that you really do care, and you’re not just pretending. i really appreciate your company, because with you i’m different. with you, i’m happy.
