I cheated on my boyfriend in high school because he threatened to hurt himself every time I tried to break up and being young, didn’t realize it was manipulative and he probably wouldn’t. I felt trapped as the person keeping him alive with a relationship I did not want, and also like he did not deserve my monogamy because he was trapping me in it. So I got mine and honestly the dude I cheated on him with, once he heard about the whole thing, was the one who made me see that I wasn’t responsible for his life and I was able to break up. Never cheated since and I don’t have regrets. —tequilaearworm
