Think Twice About Whispering Your Secrets on the Internet
You have something you’d really like to get off your chest, don’t you? Something sordid and dark, something you can’t tell your family or friends for fear that they’ll get all judgy on you and give you the side eye at Christmas.
Your secret-keeping options so far
Before the Internet opened up a world full of strangers, you had different confessional options that were time consuming, more expensive, and possibly dangerous to your health.
You could confide in a trusted friend, who would hopefully swear to take your secret to the grave.
You could tamp that secret down to the lowest possible level of your psyche with the use of food, alcohol, or drugs.
You could keep your secret to yourself until your head exploded or you keeled over from a heart attack.
Or you could go to therapy, where you paid a professional secret keeper to listen to you confess your irrational fear of sustaining a life-threatening injury from the sharp edges of a Dorito.
