When I was going into 9th grade I dated this guy who I considered one of my closest friends. He seemed like such a great boyfriend until we decided to play truth or dare. What started as an innocent game became the kickstart of years of anxiety. Every time I would pick dare he would ask me to send nudes or pictures of me in my underwear. I had never done that before and told him I wasn’t comfortable with it. He still forced me to anyway for the “game”. I eventually gave in and this became a regular thing. I asked him to delete the photos one day and he refused and claimed I didn’t trust him. He would guilt trip me into sending pictures of myself. Eventually a couple weeks later we ended things. That relationship is what caused my anxiety and depression to develop and continue onto this day. Always say no and STAND YOUR GROUND if something makes you uncomfortable.
