I would know that my beauty/handsomeness is in my love of life. I would know how much my parents love me and I would believe that they are doing the best they can.

I would be a trustworthy girlfriend. I wouldn´t trust my boyfriends. ( Just kidding) I would enjoy kissing. Really enjoy it. I Would be more appreciative and grateful, for sure.
