My Dirty Little Secrets...

"Seperated by routine, we are all mourning in parallel form the same silent
tragedies."

Like thousands of people around the world, I visit Post Secret every Sunday to read the latest confessions of men and women. I never really knew the significance of reading the secrets of strangers until last night.

Yesterday, I was up into the wee hours of the night reading a Post Secret book that my sister got for Christmas. There were several instances when I'd read a postcard and nearly cried thinking, My God...that's exactly how I feel.

That I realized was, even though the secrets are from anonymous strangers from God knows where, I was comforted. When you read someone else's feelings or experiences that mirror your own, it lessons the pain. It helps to know that you're not alone.

I took pictures of the secrets that I identified with the most. I hope this isn't copyright infringement.










If you're brave enough to tell, what's your secret?

I Hate As hard (if not more) than I love... I Know It's not great but I don't give a fuck



********************************

I'm satisfied with the amount of life that I've lived, I can die relatively young if it comes to it... as it is I'm surprised I made it past my teenage years

wow..those are deep.

My favorites: the one about him being gone for two yrs and she is still lost and "I'll never forgive you for not picking me."


But let's see my own?

What will I do after college? Seriously!

I think it's a possibility that I'm going to be single forever. And honestly I don't really mind that.
