Not everyone has a secret they need to take to the grave, but we’ve all watched enough TV to know that the people who do usually have very compelling reasons. Whether they’ve reinvented their dark pasts or told a trivial lie they feel the need to keep up for years, these secrets often run so deep, they could literally ruin lives if they were ever found out.
And as any TV and movie viewer knows, these secrets are also fascinating to outsiders. When people started sharing their potentially life-ruining secrets on reddit, the thread metastasized overnight. And some people who shared their secrets even came back to the page years later to post updates about their lives.
The stories range from dark to humorous, but one thing’s for sure: they’re definitely addictive. If you’re having a bad day or need some perspective in your life, this one’s for you.
We all have our quirks?
Every night when I go to bed, I have a little pillow and assortment of blankets that I pretend is this girl I like. She would never like me in real life (in fact, she doesn’t), so I just play pretend. It’s inherently creepy but it’s what keeps me from being a total wreck all the time.
