Secrets: The Blog That Changed My Life

Exaggerated?  Not really.  I mean it when I say PostSecret saved my life.

PostSecret was founded in 2005 by Frank Warren.  He encouraged everyone to send a postcard — stylized, of course — and reveal a secret that you have never ever ever ever spoken of before.  He uploads these postcards in his website, and soon enough, it has created an anonymous community of acceptance.

A few years after its launching, PostSecret teamed up with 1-800-suicide to help out the anonymous cries for help he usually receives in the mail.

I love this site.  I completely, absolutely, love everything about this site.  I also downloaded the app, and although there are quite a few non-secrets revealed there, I still love it.

This site made me feel that I am never alone in whatever I am going through.  More than a couple of times, I have been able to relate to some of the secrets revealed there.  The sharing is therapeutic; it’s almost like a breath of fresh air, just letting it out.  I love this site for the fresh air.

Head over there and I guarantee, if you just let yourself feel and open up for a while, you’ll feel exactly like this.

  1. I had the postsecret book on life death and god. It was brilliant. To good to keep, so I had to pass it on. I didnt know you followed PS, I would have left you the book (instead of shipping it all the way to cologne!)

    Have you ever sent in any secrets?

    • More than once. I am always having a hard time trying to buy PostSecret books from Amazon. I think I keep forgetting to have a relative send it over. Haven’t retried their shipping yet to RP, used to be insane. Maybe I’ll try now. :)

  2. I completely agree, completely completely completely. I love post secret. I have an app on my phone that sends me the Sunday updates.

Lemme know what you think.
