Post Secret

If you haven't already had a look at this site, please do.

Post Secret started as a community art exhibit and has now expanded into an international phenomenon. Basically, people send in postcards with a secret they've never told anyone else. It's a strange sort of communal voyeurism that seems to ease the pain of carrying our human burdens.

It is updated every Sunday so be sure to bookmark it and check it once a week. There are also three books available which are collections of some of the favorite cards.

Just when you thought you were alone someone sends in a postcard and reminds you that we're all fucked up! Enjoy.

I've been reading postsecret every week for about two years. I love it. One of these weeks, I'm going to send my secret off to them too.

I read post secret every week!
I dont think any other website around covers so many human emotions and circumstances. The postcards come from people of all ages and walks of life. Amazing site!! I know many people have bought the book for themselves and to give as gifts to teens, it seems to touch teens deeply and help them realize they're not alone and the world is bigger than their own little universe.
