Three and a half years ago, Frank Warren handed out self-addressed postcards to strangers in his home town and asked them to post the cards back with a secret written on them. He recieved hundreds of responses. Even after he stopped handing out the postcards, Warren continued to recieve anonymous secrets from people all over the world.
I can't remember where I first read about the 'PostSecret' project (although I think I vaguely remember the submissions being published in The Guardian Weekend magazine) but watching this short film on BBC News the other week reminded me what an inspired idea it was/is.
Warren posts a selection of the secrets he receives every week on PostSecret.Com. If you have the urge to get something off your chest you can send your secret to:
13345 Copper Ridge Rd
Or if that all sounds a bit long, you could always post it - anonymously or otherwise! - in the Comments section below. The perfect way to offload some emotional baggage on a Monday afternoon.
