Because this doesn't sound like gaslighting AT ALL

I'm enjoying the "fake happiness" far more...

For some reason this made me think of Monty Python and the Holy Grail when Galahad the Pure is "rescued" from the maidens of Castle Anthrax:

Launcelot: We were in the nick of time! You were in great peril.
Galahad: I don't think I was.
Launcelot: Yes you were, you were in terrible peril!
Galahad: Look, let me go back in there and face the peril.
Launcelot: No, it's too perilous.
Galahad: But it's my duty as a knight to sample as much peril as I can!
Launcelot: No, we've got to find the Holy Grail. Come on!
Galahad: Oh, let me have just a little bit of peril?
Launcelot: No. It's unhealthy.
