I Love PostSecret

Does anyone else follow it?

These two spoke to me.


The first I could have sent,
and the second he could have sent.

There's something very comforting to know that there are strangers all over the country with the same secret thoughts. Have any of you ever mailed in a secret?

13 people had something to say:

I mailed one, once. Made it on the website too. It's kinda a liberating experience.

Chloe said...

I save all the secrets every week that could be mine...there's a whole folder on my computer that reminds me that even though I'm fucked up...I'm not alone.

Ohmygosh yes! When I read those, I almost got a little teary. I love post secret, I have all the books! I mailed in a secret about a year ago, I haven't seen it come up yet, but I check every week!

I have. I love Post Secret. I heard him speak (he's local) and it was pretty amazing. Mosty it was inspirational to see how much he truly treasures those secrets so I decided to suck it up and go for it. While my secret never made it to the site it felt like I had unburdened myself. You should definitely go for it if you're comtemplating it.

I did. Four seperate postcards (as weird as that makes me sound).
Though I can't say I shared the same 'liberating' feeling as the others did. The first two were pretty light-hearted and amusing. But the latter two were on the serious side. And I didn't feel any better about sending them in.

But you're right, sometimes it's nice to see that we're not all that different in the end. I've seen a few that I could relate to, and I think that's where I got my 'liberating' feeling from.

Woot epiphany! :D

I actually thought of both of those... and they're both true for me and him as well. My answer to the second one is still no though.
I've posted a secret before, it made the website too.

Rachel said...

I remember seeing that second one. It really got to me, also.

More blogs please, we miss you.

I've never mailed on in, but I do absolutely love reading them every Sunday morning. I get the same feeling reading them as I do being on the "inside" of an inside joke.

But the real reason I'm commenting is to pressure a return of the blog! More posts please! I miss you!

i really really like those! they kinda remind me of the troubles i'm having with my newly ex boyfriend. and the fact that he kissed me again last night, and i know i still love him, and i was the one who broke up with him, so he tells me often that he still loves me, and i'm starting to have second thoughts, but there's no way i could ever go back to him. see what i'm saying?

Lyla Lou said...

I hope you're just busy and haven't had the time to post....we miss you! Hope you're ok!
