Secrets can ruin people’s lives. One way or another, the truth always seems to seep out even if you thought you were an impermeable, air tight lock box of emotions.
But alas, people are imperfect beings — and secrets tend to eat away at the beholder until they can’t take it anymore. So instead of coming clean to their friends, family members, and loved ones, they instead choose to anonymously shout their shocking truths from the Reddit rooftops.
Maybe you’ve been having an affair with your cousin for the last five years, or maybe you utterly regret having kids and don’t know what to do anymore. These are not tales that one can easily spout without consequences, so for these wary individuals, it’s easier for them to divulge to their friends across the World Wide Web.
