Someone online asked, “What’s your secret that, if known, would change the way people see you?”And 35 people confess
There are some things I cannot tell anyone. These facts, thoughts, or opinions can be so controversial that you might think people will judge you. they won’t agree with you.
But sometimes it’s better to release it to the world and the internet with the security of anonymity that platforms often offer. What is it?” people talked openly about it.

Things I’ve been through in the past and things I continue to go through (because of all of that my “broken brain”). It may sound cheesy, but I choose love and connection carefully every day. I don’t want anyone to feel lonely and unwanted like I do. I have a reputation for being a “sweet and innocent person” and seem a little naive. People would be really shocked if they found out about my past. No, my kindness is a choice. You can’t change what happened, but you can change what’s happening and what’s happening to others. Let’s break the cycle together!
People think I’m a good listener. I’m only asking because I don’t want to be rude, not because I care. Please don’t tell me your family secrets.
I have a very hard time liking or liking people even though I’ve known them for years. bottom. I was like that when I was a kid, and I still am…
I am a Christian (I hope it’s no secret) but I’m tired of many things my fellow Christians do in the name of Christ. My spouse and I have trouble going to church. Trump endorsers, covid denier, anti-masking.
Still, hosting a vaccine clinic in the early days of mass vaccination is deployed as a service to the community and I am sure it shows the love of Christ.
Our house was the first house built in our city.her husband and me [made love] At every house on our street while they were under construction. I think our neighbors would see us differently if they knew we f****d before we had sex at home.
All my friends and family are Jehovah’s Witnesses. 85% of them shun me when I leave.
A few years ago I went to the zoo during the Halloween celebration month when costumes were allowed. I told people that penguins are animatronics. When the giraffe gets sick, feed the lion. I told a group of children that, scientifically speaking, snakes and apples are cousins.
My sense of smell is off the charts. You can tell if you’re showering in the morning or at night by the smell of your hair. Someone ate yogurt in the auditorium hours ago, but threw the container in the trash and when I walk across the room I smell yogurt. We remember people by their voices and smells, not by their faces, or we learn something different (like a strange way of walking, a strange body shape, etc.). Touch memory is also weird. Have you locked the front door? I focus on my hands and see what they have felt in the last 20 minutes. As long as you have the feeling to lock the door, I’m fine. I’m literally a freak, and if people had no choice but to actually remember how much they knew their behavior/physical anomalies/smells, everyone would look at me like a monster.
At this point, I don’t care about anything or anyone. Life is like a game and I’m just a bystander until this body breaks down. The human experience is so shallow compared to the universe as a whole that we cannot shake the point of view that none of the tears, the suffering, the smiles matter at all.
I just can’t understand how people get so *invested* into their lives that none of this show matters at all.
I enjoy beautiful sunsets and laughs with others, but none of that makes this game worth a candle.
I rush from training dogs more than any experience I’ve shared with humans. Dogs feel more intense and real. When you see them, you know they are there and present with you. Only a handful of people can say they come close to that level of understanding, and no one has achieved it without words like the dog I worked with.
I am married, own a home (half with my wife), have 3 kids and have a steady job.I have no idea how I got there, and 90% of the time I have no idea what to do.
I always have the absurd assumption that everyone knows something I don’t. I fully understand it’s unfair and paranoid, but the mental blockade it creates means it’s really hard for me to trust people.
Consider everyone constantly worried about having a snake in their pocket.
I haven’t finished high school. I got out of an abusive relationship in 4th grade, was stalked, got very depressed and dropped out.
I got my GED at age 20 and am currently in college majoring in engineering. But I never told my friends or boyfriend that I didn’t graduate.
My mental health is going down the drain. I’m terribly depressed, but I’m trying *hard* to get better.
I am almost always incredibly horrified. i’m not confident I don’t think I have more control. I don’t think you can do this.still here i go
I like both men and women
It may sound petty, but my family is Moman and if they find out, I can handle it.
I have serious gender identity issues and would transition in a heartbeat if I could, except knowing that no one in my family would accept me.
Sometimes I shave and smooth my legs, then sit down, close my eyes and rub my hands to pretend I’m actually touching the girl’s leg.
