Confessions From 23 People Who Have Been Hiding Terrible Secrets

Secrets weigh heavily on the soul, so it’s usually best to just set that sh*t free. Even if you think it might ruin your life and relationships, keeping a terrible secret tucked deep inside will only eat away at your spirit until it’s broken forever. Just maybe don’t leak where the body’s buried if you don’t want to spend the next 40 to life in prison. JK… kind of.

Don’t be the woman who places all of the guilt on herself for her friends suicide. Don’t keep feelings of cold feet from your soon-to-be wife — things will only get worse. And don’t be the guy who secretly pines for his best friend’s gal for years and years without ever communicating his feelings. But please, no “Love Actually” cue cards — that sh*t’s creepy.

Letting go of secrets is the second step in leading a happy and truthful life. The first step is eating an entire box of frozen Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies in one sitting. #goals
