Feeling forced to do something that you don't want to do.
How could he make me do that?
What will he do if i don't?
It's no big deal if i do, no one will find out.
I can't believe he did that, he lied to me, he told everyone.
Why was i ever interested in him?
I will never do something that someone is trying to force me to do.
