they asked me why i believe in you

Everyone enjoys a game of make believe now and then.

Of course, the ways in which we play can vary greatly.

Sometimes we tell ourselves work won’t interfere with our family life.

Sometimes we imagine certain relationships to be more meaningful than they really are.

Occasionally we put on a show, as if to convince ourselves our secrets aren’t really all that terrible.

The game of make believe is a simple one.

You start by lying to yourself.

And if you can get others to believe those lies, you win.
