As a child I had… difficulties, with my mum’s ex long term boyfriend. After seven years I told her what he’d been doing to me and she moved out straight away, which was really great and I adore my mther for believing me, i’m very lucky. Since then, I haven’t spoken abut it, the rest of my family bring it up in public when they’re drunk etc. but I shake it off; i’m strong. However, recently a boy in the year above me in college started speaking to me and I told him everything - only it turned out he was nothing but you’re typical ‘player’, he’s really awful and now I just can’t speak to him. I know telling him was an unbelievably stupid thing to do, but i’m terrified he tells someone, what can I do?
Ask him if he can keep that something just between you. That it was something that you didn’t want anyone to know, but at one point you had a lot of trust for him and that if he can just do that one thing for you. If other people know, what’s the worst thing that can happen. You can brush it off. And move on from it. If he tells, believe me, Karma is a bitch.
