Secrets That Hurt

brokenheart2 Secrets That Hurt Do you have a secret that would break someone’s heart?

(I know that I do.)

Author Frank Warren says he believes every person does.

Warren says if we could just remember this, there would be a lot more compassion and tolerance in the world.

Warren  is the founder of the original postsecret blog; www.postsecret.com

He’s going to be speaking Wednesday about secrets at Oakland University on Wednesday September 21, 7pm, at the Oakland Center.  It’s free.As a sort of prelude to the event, people are anonymously posting their secrets on the Oakland University website. Some of these posts DO break your heart.

One reads:  “All he wants is sex with me to get back at his girlfriend for cheating on him.”

Another says: “Some babies suck on their thumb and eventually they stop.  I didn’t stop sucking.”

Another:  “You don’t deserve it, so how come I still cry over you.”

Yet another:  “In my world, silver linings don’t exist.”

Here’s the one that really got to me: “I can’t afford a grave marker at your grave and it kills me every day.  You’re my dad…you gave your best for me.”

This is heavy-duty, beautiful stuff.

And here’s the link to the website.  Sounds like a great event.
