I think postsecret is a very strange art exhibit. I know that for me, I wouldn't experience much healing sharing my secret anonymously to a world of strangers. But I do think there is healing for the readers, the ones that look on the site and can humanize the world again. Or even to share in the peculiar habit or tendency displayed on the website. Sometimes we forget that everyone is dealing with their own struggles. Our own secrets and issues can just creep up and block our view or ability to empathize. But the site has me walking down the street imagining each person with their own postcard taped to their heart. Most cards are blanks. It's my friends that I can see the illustration. It's like they've invited me into their world to know what they fear, what they dislike about themselves, what they're ashamed of, what they're hiding from the world. Ultimately that is what matters. That you reveal your secrets to someone you trust. That you can open your spoiled inside to another human being that can spur you on to mucking out the damage the fungus has won over. Most secrets do tend to crawl around your insides and infest the soul. And the loneliness of holding something like that in hurts even more. So send in your secret, but share it with someone you love. Though, I should add for the quirky cards, and the happy cards, well I hope those simply aren't real secrets hidden from people we surround ourselves with. I want my people to know the oddities and happies of my life; just like I want to know the card pinned to your heart.
