Like most, I adore my weekends. I love sleeping in until all hours and waking up naturally. I love rush hour free tubes and exploring the city. But most of all, I love Sunday Secrets.
Sunday Secrets come courtesy of PostSecret, a community mail art project where people from all over the world share their secrets anonymously on a homemade postcard. Theyre then mailed to Frank, the founder, who in turn updates the website with a selection from the latest batch of secrets each Sunday. Frank tours the US speaking at universities discussing the impact, on each of us and society, secrets can have and invites people to share a secret of their own with the audience. Some brave souls find the courage to do so. Since its 2005 beginnings, PostSecret has become a place of comfort for many and a community of acceptance for others. And for those like me, its a place to get a glimpse into the lives of others on a Sunday morning.
People are brutally honest when theyre anonymous. Some secrets are heartbreakingly real and some are filled with hatred and revenge. A number refer to crimes committed, drugs taken, inappropriate thoughts and a whole lot are about sex. Although I have never sent Frank a secret and probably never will, doing so has got to be hugely liberating and, depending on the severity of it, like the weight of the world off your shoulders. Possibly a bit like going to Confession but without the Hail Marys and Glory Be as you leave.
By the time comes around I have most of the secrets forgotten. One secret however has stayed with me since I first saw it over a year ago and this is it.
Im not a big Harry Potter fan, Ive read a few of the books but I cant get this secret out of my head. What a way to fill these seven men with dread, regret and fear. Who is the Baby Daddy and is the sender telling the truth? Have the seven actors seen it and thought Uh oh?
So maybe letting go of the secret, that deeply hidden information thats holding you back and eating away at your insides, will set you free and enable you to be yourself again. Maybe youll discover he feels the same about you as you do him. Maybe your life will be changed by a stranger, maybe youll discover theres a lot of good in the world and maybe youll get the answers youve been searching for.
There are a lot of maybes but only one definitely. Definitely make PostSecret Sunday part of your weekend routine. The secrets you will read will beg you to ponder a million questions and the same amount of possible answers. Youll discover things about yourself that never dawned on you and youll wish that you had the guts to be so honest and brave.
