Got A Secret, Can You Keep It?

We all carry secrets in our hearts, right? Good ones, bad ones, dirty ones, silly ones, scary ones ... maybe you're in love with your brother-in-law, still wet the bed, are pregnant and no one knows yet, pick your nose and eat it, are a klepto, addicted to drugs, still terrified of the dark, love one of your children more than the other ... you get where I'm going here?


I've always wanted to submit something to PostSecret but I've never gotten around to actually sitting down to write that anonymous postcard ... so today I'm opening up Travel Babbles to let any and all readers leave their secrets here anonymously via comment down below ... and I'll be sprinkling in a few of my own secrets, too.


So spill it down below. No one will figure out your secret, I promise (as long as you remember to comment anonymously!) ... and make sure you check in periodically throughout the day to read everyone else's secrets ... this could get good ;)

xo,
Kym

  1. I was caught shoplifting right after my 19th birthday. I thought for sure my life was over, but, since I had never even gotten a speeding ticket, I was able to pay a fine without anything going on my record. That's extent of my "badassery" [stupidity]. The only people that know is my family. No way anyone would suspect me of doing such a thing.

  2. I'm scared I won't be a good mom

  3. I hate my new "impressive" job that I recently took. I never thought I'd be one of those people who loathed going into work until I was 2 months in.

  4. My parents think I'm getting a swanky government job as a court reporter, but don't know that I quit school almost a year ago.

  5. I can't give my attention and love to more than one person. And hate sharing him/her.

  6. A few years ago, I was in an 11-month relationship with another girl. She was someone my group of friends embraced as a little sister type. No one but she and I knew what was going on between us. None of us are friends anymore because she has some serious psychological issues that ruined her relationship with everyone, including me. I won't ever speak to her again, but sometimes I seriously miss it.

    I've never identified myself as bi-sexual, but I certainly think I could be (am?). It's not something I struggle with, it just...is.

  9. When I was 9 years old, me and a friend broke into my neighbors house and stole makeup. The cops came after us and took us home. This is not me AT ALL. I hate thieves.

  10. I've been married for 14 years, but sometimes I still dream about my ex-boyfriend.

    1. Me 6. I can't think of, or be in Vancouver, BC, without thinking of him - that's where he's from. And while I always cheer for my team, I always go when they play against the Vancouver Canucks. He's stuck in my heart, and I can't (won't?) let him go.

    2. me 7... Sometimes I wish why we didn't work out.

    3. Me x8. I don't miss him when I'm awake, but I think when you're with someone a long time they get buried in your subconscious somewhere

  11. I met a man 10 years my senior right before I started dating my husband. I was young and still wanted to have fun but was eventually official with my husband before the last time I saw this other man. In less than one month of knowing this man he had broken off his engagement because of me. Years later he is still not married and writes me occasionally to say that he still thinks of me whenever he is in town.

  12. I love my husband but sometime I think about how much money I would save if I wasn't married. I even count all my bills out It's bad but it's the truth.

  13. I feel like no matter what I do, or how hard I try, I will never have friends, and I don't belong anywhere.

    1. I've felt this way in most season of my life.

    2. I feel the same way.. I don't have any close friends & even at my wedding my bridesmaids weren't there for me like I pictured or thought.. I don't ever feel like I belong or wanted.

      Delete
  14. I cheated on my boyfriend when we started dating. If he ever finds out he'll leave me for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I don't think I want children. I honestly cannot imagine myself as someone's mother, and I don't think I have "a biological clock," because I've never once heard/felt it tick.

    Babies freak me out, and I've never once desired one of my own.

  16. Been feeling sad over blogging recently as more and more it reminds me of the cliques that existed in high school in that other bloggers only seem interested in engaging the bloggers with thousands of followers and trying to get thousands of followers. These beautiful girls, with wonderful handsome husbands, cute kids, big homes, perfect jobs, closets full of designer clothes who seem to have it all, only have amazing things to write about and millions of sponsored posts make me feel depressed and are turning me off to blogging.

    1. I think so many of us feel that same way, but are afraid to actually say it. I have a large(ish) blog and try to always let people see it all- the good stuff, the bad stuff and the random stuff! While my husband is great, we still bicker like any couple, our house is tiny and always a mess, I don't think I own a single 'designer' item and just write about what I feel like. We are out there!! The real blogs are my favorite to read.

      Delete
    2. I just don't read those kinds of blogs! Superman, who had no real weak spot, was B-O-R-I-N-G. The guys who had to work at being a superhero, who got hurt, who had pains, those are the interesting ones-- same thing goes for blogs! Live life in 3-D, right?

      Delete
    3. I feel like everyone has blogging buddies, except for me. I want to shout sometimes and say, what about me over here!!

      Delete
    4. I will be blogging buddies with you! I'm a very small blogger, so we can be our own, small blog circle.

      Delete
    5. I want to be in your blog circle too please! I'm a fairly new blogger and am finding the "blogging community" I've heard so much about to be quite cold. There are exceptions of course.

      Delete
    6. I feel the same way. The more I blog, the more blogs I read, the more I find out about other bloggers, the more I hate blogging. It just seems like another platform for girls to be fake and hateful toward each other and this time they get to hide behind their computer and a facade of their "perfect" lives.

      Delete
    7. I feel the same way.. I feel like bloggers I have lots of things in common with blow me off b/c I'm not "big enough" or wear the right clothes.. I just wanted to be a BIG blogger and feel wanted..

      Delete
    8. As a small blogger who never got noticed 'turned big' I am sad to say this seems to be true. So I am trying to bring along all my blogging buddies who cared before I got a lot of followers. But one action wont change the 'hierarchy' of blogging unfortunately.

  17. I want to have kids NOW even though everyone says I'm too young.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I had an affair 2 years ago with my husband's best friend and we got caught. These days, we've both divorced our spouses and are together and could not be happier. Sometimes I act like I feel guilty, but secretly, I could not be happier.

    ReplyDelete
  19. My friends have always regarded me as the "strong one", but what that means is I never feel like I can show weakness in front of others. Under my bold exterior, I'm actually painfully shy & awkward, and I don't trust many people. So when I'm overwhelmed, I hardly ever feel I have anybody to turn to, & instead battle depression and/or cry a lot in private. Internalizing emotions constantly isn't healthy. :-( No matter who you are, I can guarantee you that some of the outwardly "strongest" people you know feel constantly very fragile inside.

    1. I am the same exact way! Everyone comes to me for help and advice but I never feel that I have anyone to turn to and a lot of my tears happen in the privacy of my bedroom.

  20. I got my tubes tied at age 21 after having two kids. Sometimes I wish I could have another baby but I feel like I can't say anything because no one was happy with either of my pregnancies, even though I'm married.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Even though I dumped my boyfriend 4 years ago, I can't stop thinking about him and wondering why he didn't fight me on my decision.

    ReplyDelete
  22. My mother in law is a straight up nutcase. I think she did too many drugs in the 70s. She can't process things they way other people do, she talks behind your back, and twists your words to suit her. She's always looking for attention and sympathy. Of course I can't tell my husband because it's his mom, and he defends her. I don't like to talk to her and don't like being around her.

    1. I understand completely... my MIL is the same way. I can't understand why she intentionally does and says things to cause problems in our family and extended family.

    2. me too!!! My MIL purposely says things to cause drama between my husband and I. I absolutely hate my MIL

    3. Oh god, mine too. I wish I could tell my husband how I feel. I secretly can't stand to be in the same room as her and refuse to answer the phone when it is her.

      Delete
  23. I wonder if i'll ever find the one and truly be happy..I see friends and family members in love and content all around. and I just sit back and wonder what is wrong with me? why can't i find that?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sometimes I just wish I was single, that I didn't have to feel guilty every time I think of how much better it would be, but I don't want to leave him. I don't want to be alone.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I've never been dumped. I do the dumping so I don't get hurt, but it always backfires on me. I can't talk to anybody about it because they only tell me how great it must feel to have never been dumped. They don't understand.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I'm very happy in my very long term COMMITTED relationship, but I still miss my high school sweetheart all the time. I catch myself wondering if we would have children by now if he was willing to commit to me more.

    1. Same here! I love my husband, but i caught myself looking at my ex facebook once every blue moon. Not because I still am in love with him, but bc I get worried for him. Its crazy

  27. I think my partner is an alcoholic like his parents, and because of this fear, I do not want to have children with him. He wants children more than anything.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I love my best friends to the moon and back, but sometimes I feel like I really can't stand them. I don't know how to be a supportive friend when they lack real-world perspective, act like the world owes them something, or continuously make terrible life decisions. Sometimes I just want to slap them.

    It also makes me wonder what kind of stuff I do that drives them crazy.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I don't respect my mother and from time to time actually feel like I hate her.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I was raised ULTRA conservative Christian and i'm getting to the point in my young life (20's) where i feel the need to make my own spiritual decisions but i'm afraid that my family will not understand, and i'll lose the wonderful relationships i have with them.

    1. I grew up in the same sort of family environment and now consider myself ULTRA liberal and agnostic. Some of my family strongly disapproves and others tolerate my decision. Regardless, I realized that I needed to be true to myself and hope that my family respects that.. good luck :)

  31. I hate my in-laws.

  32. I don't think I like my best friend anymore. She drives me crazy and I can't stand her bajillion updates on Facebook about how great she is. I'm going home for a visit in a couple weeks and have considered not telling her.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I think you're my new favorite person.

  34. Oh shit, forgot to turn on anonymous ;)

  35. I'm hung up on a guy I liked in high school. He married another girl. We remained friends. He divorced his wife. Remarried. We are no longer friends. After we stopped speaking, I found out he told another friend he wished he'd married me instead of his first wife. The "what if" almost broke my heart. I hate feeling like I'm still on his hook, especially since we haven't spoken in over 2 years.

  36. Sometimes I want to shout from the rooftops that I went to therapy. It was the best thing that ever happened to me! I'm not crazy, I just needed someone to talk to and a different perspective on situations I was dealing with. It helped me learn not to be so hard on myself :)

    2. I've been wanting to go to therapy for the last 6 months. How does one go about doing this?

      Delete
    3. I, too, want to go to therapy, but have no idea how to find a therapist. I know it would do me a world of good.

      Delete
    4. I'm glad people could relate to the secret I posted. I actually just googled therapists in my area and lucked out with picking a great one. FYI- for the first several months I thought she was awful and it wasn't helping. I spent each week crying for the whole hour I was there, feeling worse than when I walked in but I swear it gets better. She took that time to really get to know me and understood my thoughts. It was then, when we tackled deeper problems and I felt better each week that I went. Don't quit if you don't think it's not helping. I'm so glad I stuck with it. Good luck with your search! Xo

  37. the closer i get to finishing school and being a teacher, the more anxious i get. after 8 years of committing to it at school...i don't know if i want to do it anymore.

  38. Sometimes I take my computer with me when I go to the bathroom because the show I'm watching is too riveting.

  39. I've driven while (extremely) drunk once - and I knew I was doing it at the time. My friends and I were always very good about having a designated driver... This particular night, my DD (and room mate) hooked up with someone for a one night stand. There was no taxi service in the town I lived in; and the nearest hotel room was $218 (which I didn't have). I walked to a fast food place, got a burger & fries; waited a bit, then got in her car (I had the spare key) and drove myself home. I immediately packed up all her stuff, left it on the porch, then locked every lock on the door - and I've never spoken to her since. She had no idea why I was so hurt & angry.

    1. that was 16 years ago - and I never told anyone until just now; I was too ashamed. I know I didn't hurt anyone - but to this day, the thought that I could have, pisses me off more than anything.

    2. I also drove drunk and regret it everyday. I get anxiety thinking about what could have happened. So stupid. I was SO stupid.

  40. The secret of my ectopic pregnancy feels like a huge burden weighing me down. Barely any of my family or friends know. Just because we weren't married doesn't mean it hurt any less. My boyfriend and I have been dating for 6 years, I feel like I shouldn't have to hide it but for some reason I still feel ashamed...

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm closing in on 30, more alone then I have ever been and not at all happy. I just want to get married and start a family but am getting really tired of waiting.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I finally made the decision to leave my husband and couldn't be more thrilled. There have been instances in our marriage where he has pushed himself on me physically, and I finally broke down and told some friends and my parents. He's been telling his friends and family that I'm having a mental break, but I don't even care at this point- I just want out. I won't be able to share this real reason on my blog because his entire family reads it and I have no interest in ruining his reputation, but just getting this out is an extreme relief

  43. I wish I hadn't lost my virginity to him.

  44. I haven't left my apartment in 129 days. My fear is absolutely paralyzing me and sadly I am dealing with this myself because of lack of family and living in a rural area.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I've had two abortions.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I secretly wondered what my life would be like if I had accepted the first marriage proposal I received. I chose love over money, but sometimes wonder if that was the "right" decision. My life would be so much easier if I never had to worry about money.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I hate my husband's mother. She basically ignores my husband and spends all of her time praising my husband's sister. It has been like this his entire life. This has resulted in my amazing husband has had huge self-esteem issues his entire life. How any parent can choose to love one child more than another, is beyond anything I can understand. And it makes me cry everytime I think about it, because my husband is the best, most caring and devoted person I know. He does not deserve to be treated like this.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I have been trying to get pregnant for 7 months. Nobody knows except my husband of course and one other friend that I talk to about it. I have had a few fertility tests (I know it's early, but the doctor was willing to do them) so it's especially hard keeping that a secret from my family.

  49. I'm so self conscious that every time I hear people around me laughing, I feel like they are laughing at me.

  50. I work from home, and some weeks, instead of getting any work done, I just read blogs and watch Netflix. Then I feel super guilty for enjoying my weekend.

  52. I'm suffering from depression and I am ashamed at this because I feel like I've let everyone down and that I should have been stronger. X x

    ReplyDelete
  53. I cheated on my boyfriend of 5 years and ended up dating the "other man for 2 months," long distance. I fell more in love with him in that 2 months that I ever felt for my ex. He stopped calling and texting after 2 months and I laid my feelings on the line and told him I wanted to be with him and wanted to work at the long distance thing. And he never responded. I got back together with my ex, and we are going on our 6 year anniversary (not including the "break" we took). There isn't a day goes by where I don't think I'm settling for less than I deserve, and that I could be more happy with someone else. I think about calling my "other man" or sending him a text to say hi, but I'm too scared of being rejected again, even after 6 months. But I'm too scared to leave my boyfriend and possibly end up alone.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I'm jealous that my sisters have a great relationship with our mom and I don't, because I can never forgive her for standing by my father after she knew that he molested me. If only my sisters knew, they would look at her differently too. I wish I had the ignorance my sisters do.

  55. I'm scared of failing at my new job, but I desperately want to be successful.

  56. I wish my sex life with my husband was better. I wish he wanted me for me, and not just because he wanted a piece of ass.

    ReplyDelete
  57. I was sexually molested by a female neighbor who wasn't much older than I was when I was much younger. The sad part is that she was doing what her brother had done to her. To this day I've never told my parents about it because I was/am completely ashamed even though I know there was nothing I could have done.

    ReplyDelete
  58. I find out people's facebook/ email/ etc. passwords and read their messages-- old roommates, bosses, supervisors. They all think I'm really intuitive and that I'm one of those people who can read emotions really well, and that I'm really smart since I'm always one step ahead of my co-workers. I don't read them because they give me an advantage, I'm just really nosy and want to know what they're saying when I'm not around.

  59. I just read all of these. ALL!

  60. I have always felt like I settled for less than I deserved by marrying my husband.

  61. My husband is addicted to porn & I don't know how to deal with it. I want out of this marriage!

  62. I have thought about what it would be like to be single and get to go live in a different country, like England. Who would I meet? What would I do? But, I'm married and have to think of someone else now.
