We often hear that you never know what truly goes on with people behind closed doors (or deep in their heads and souls). We spend so much time wearing the various masks that we believe our lives, situations, jobs, etc. need us to adorn, when really, the true connection between human beings comes from our ability to be vulnerable and needy.
I encourage you to check out this website: PostSecret. It’s amazing, funny, disturbing, sad, inspiring, and devastating. The idea behind it is someone designs a postcard that represents a secret he or she has been harboring. On this postcard, they write their secret and anonymously send it to PostSecret. Every Sunday, new PostSecrets are posted on the website.
The site has the amazing ability to remind us all that we are not alone; that everyone has difficulties in their lives. The site also includes helpful resources for those considering suicide or struggling with other hardships.
Check it out. You’ll be glad you did. And let’s remember – we are all human beings trying to do the best we can every day.
