Tell me a secret
Tell Me a Story
only_more_love
If you feel so inclined, please come tell me a secret--any secret.  Feel free to post as many as you want.  Just do it anonymously; I'll do the same.

And if it wasn't already obvious since this post isn't f-locked, we don't need to be "friends" in order for you to comment.

We all have secrets, don't we?

ETA:  I'm not judging you—any of you.  It is my personal belief that people are tremendously complicated and nuanced.   It is my privilege to read your secrets.  Your responses reinforce my belief that everyone has a story to tell, if only we're ready to listen.

I want to hug every single person who's commented on this post.  Despite the differences in our individual secrets, we all have hungers and fears that regardless of whether we're ashamed of them or not, aren't easy to share with other people.  Those things unite us and makes us beautifully, tragically human. 

I let people think I think I'm not pretty, just so they'll tell me otherwise.

I guess that means I must not really think I'm pretty.

*hugs*

Our feelings about our physical appearance can be enormously complicated.

Im not aloud to see my best friend.. but we secretly meet up every Sunday night, and play pool.
its been 2 yrs since i "officially" saw him..well thats what my parents think anyway..

*hugs you*

Though I don't know the circumstances, I'm sorry your parents have tried to keep you from seeing your best friend. That sounds tough. It's amazing that you've managed to see him for 2 years without getting caught, though.

I have an eating disorder and have had it since I was 19...

*hugs*

I'm very sorry to hear that; I've known people with eating disorders. They're destructive and painful.

I get turned on and have masturbated watching DB as Angel/Angelus being excessively violent and cruel to others. The more fist in the face, the better.

*hugs*

Nothing wrong with that; there's a difference between fantasy and reality.

Fandom can make me feel kind of strange when I meet people in RL. My fandom friends and I talk about the most intimate details of sex and porn and what turns us on - yet we (the people in RL) are not having sex with each other. Occasionally that just strikes me as really odd. I guess it's the interactivity of writers and feedback - the porn fourth wall is gone.

*hugs*

I've yet to meet a single fandom friend face-to-face, though I hope to do so sometime. But I can definitely understand why that might be a bit weird. And I hear you on the lack of a fourth wall. *g*

I tell my friends that I don't drink because I don't want to, but the truth is I fantasize about drinking so much that I think I could become an alcoholic too easily. I'm scared that one day I will give in.

Same here. My dad was an alcoholic and I'm scared to become one myself.

I daydream too much about what I would like to do because I don't have the courage to actually do it. I like to pretend I'm this sharp tounged witty little genius who can verbally cut you to shreds, but when it comes down to it, I just stand back and take it.

If my family knew of the fics I am reading I would probably be killed.

have had a self injury problem since im 15.

*hugs*

Sorry to hear that; hope you are finding ways to manage this problem. If you ever want to vent, feel free to do it here. You can do it anonymously. Of if you'd like a stranger's ear...

I'm 20 and I never had sex.

I'm almost 20 and I've never had sex. It's not a secret though, I know lots of people who are waiting for various reasons.

Sometimes I feel responsible for my fathers death.

*hugs*

I don't know the specifics of your situation, so I can't comment except to say you have my sympathy. So sorry that you feel that way.

Last year I had a friend turn most of my other friends against me, they all stopped speaking to me. No one would tell me what was wrong, and when they did, everyone expected me to forgive them immediately and move on. I haven't forgiven them, and I don't think I ever will. I'm not sure if that makes me a bad person, or if I should want to.

*hugs*

It's terrible that you went through that. Seems like that would be tough to deal with it. I don't think it makes you a bad person if you're unable to forgive them; I think it makes you human. You have a right to your feelings. No one else can dictate how you should feel about what happened. Hopefully you're able to make your peace with the situation--regardless of whether or not you remain friends with those people.

sometimes I wish I'd get pregnant just to see if it'd get the guys who say they love me to stick around...but I know in my heart I don't want to be with anyone who only pays lips service to saying they love me

*hugs*

Oh, sweetie. I empathize, I really do. It's not wrong to want to be really, truly, sincerely loved.

sometimes i wish i would get really really sick just so i could see who my real friends are.

*hugs*

I'd say that makes you human. Tough times do have a way of showing us who really cares.

No one in my RL knows I write/read fan fiction, and if they did I know for a fact I'd be teased mercilessly.

*hugs*

I think that's the case for a lot of people. My husband is the only person in my RL who knows I read/write fanfic. :)
