Where Do I Go From Here

About a month ago, I sent a photo to someone. It was meant to be private and my stepdad got the picture. My heart was crushed and my spirit is broken. He talked to be about this and he was not angry but he wants to help me. I feel like an idiot because I was taking a pill that messes with my behavior and I feel awful. I don't know how to come back from this. I am afraid that my mom and my family will see this picture. Can someone give me some advice?

What's done is done. Whatever the content of the photo, unfortunately you can't take it back but you can be grateful that he wasn't angry but sounds more understanding than anything. There's some positivity in it, at least. Perhaps you can make sure he deletes the photo; whatever it is, it's assumed that any decent person (especially since he's family) would get rid of something that would hurt you, rather than keep it.<br />

How to come back from it...you move on. You made a mistake, talk to him about it and then put it behind you.

Well we can't change the past..only the future. Just accept it as an experience to learn from and probably never repeat. In this day and age you are not alone. Look at what Anthony Weiner did and what it cost him. I hope that it isn't a problem that your stepfather saw it as in him endangering you in a sexual harassment way..... doesn't sound like it from your account. Hope this helps.
