Secrets

Frank Warren has been inviting people to share secrets with him for almost ten years. It all started when he printed out and hand-distributed 3,000 postcards with instructions on how to share secrets with him anonymously. Since then, he has received secrets every day – and it doesn’t look like people are going to stop sending them any time soon. For more information on how this works, visit the PostSecret community website.

He’s published five books filled with anonymous secrets – I own the first one printed. Some of the secrets are shocking. Some are funny. Some are really, really sad. There is something so intimate about reading through these. Each postcard (whether the secret is true or not) represents an opportunity to unburden a load. Each declaration, a huge sigh of relief.

Some of these make me laugh, others make me feel extremely uncomfortable. Here are some of my favorites:

About wanderingmuses31

We are both from the USA, and now we live in Thessaloniki, Greece. We are friends with similar interests and hobbies - namely photography and all things aesthetically pleasing and lots of laughter. We don't claim to know about a lot of things, but hope that you find inspiration in some of the things that inspire us. Thanks.
