Q: How do you know when you are truly happy? rather than falsely happy.

When you don’t feel the need to “give parties to cover the silence”. You are truly happy when that happiness comes from nowhere, when no outter circumstances can touch it; when you finally master it, within you, against all odds, through insight. True happiness is never a fleeting or light feeling; it emerges when things, good or bad, have one same weight, in perfect balance. A happy person is an alchimist of emotions.

Q: I have a enormous girl crush on you.

I think you have a crush on the idea of me, which is slightly different, but still plausible. And I’m afraid that, being fairly narrow, the only things that crushes generate are poetry or exhaustion. I wish you the best of luck.
