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.
