If it was me, I would have played 2...exd4. If you're Black your first goal should be to equalize with White, and controlling the center is a big part of that. After 2...exd4, White is most likely to capture the pawn with 3.Qxd4, which allows us to gain some time by simultaneously developing a knight and attacking his queen with 3...Nc6. If White plays 3.Nf3, we can play 3...Bb4+ attacking White's king and developing a bishop at the same time. This causes some problems for White, as he can't block the check without losing the knight after 4.Nc3. Should he block the check with 4.c3, Black wins the pawn. White has other moves of course, but the main point is to not play "passively" and let your opponent dictate the flow of the game. Keep it in the back of your mind that "you need to equalize as black", and that should help you to play more aggressively. "Keep the initiative" as they say.
