Post Secret Found


My daughter was going through a Post Secret book at Barnes & Noble today and found this card. On the back there is a message asking, if this card is found in a PS book, for the finder to mail it in or leave it there. Of course my daughter wants to mail it in.


Should the creator of this card ever find this blog I want them to know a teenage girl found the secret, thought about it, and sent it on its journey.

June 2010 Update: I never dreamed this post would get the attention it has over the last two and a half years. "Post Secret Found" receives multiple hits per day from all over the world. You can check the live feed in the sidebar. For reasons I don't understand, this post appears near the top of most search engines, most notably Google.

Whatever the reason, the story behind this card and this post remain a wonderful example of the power of the Post Secret movement. Thank you for stopping by. I hope you are encouraged by this post and my blog.

Thank you so much......

I had thought it had been thrown away. I entered rehab soon after leaving that picture in the book. I've cleaned up but things still quite aren't so easy. But this gave me so much hope and when i needed it. I just hope i can get out of dothan soon.

I started to think that things would never look up. Please thank your daughter for me.

Thank you for sharing, Katharine. Numbing the pain is an all too common strategy. You are right, there are better ways to go forward in life. I wish you the best.

I daated this girl for 3 months. It was hard for numerous reasons ; I am a girl. & All of my faamily wasn’t acceptive. She lived 11 hours away from me, and the distance killed me. She was so different then me, but I fell so head over heels in love with her. She was my life for 3 months. I woke up, only to talk to her, I went to sleep when I wasn’t talking to her, so I wouldn’t have to miss her. Then, all of a sudden ; oout of the blue , she broke up with me. It has been the hardest two months of my lifee. I miss her more and more everyday. When we were dating, we both agreed that we wouldn’t smoke pot. When we broke up, I was offered it, & told it would help me feel better. At first, I only did it to try and make her angry, but then I really did feel better. Now it seems like the only time I feel okay, is when I have a bong in my hand .. </3imissyou.

i started doing meth again so he wouldnt shut me out and leave me any more after i moved back home. he had promised he had stopped too, i came back just for him ... three years went by he continued to leave me to go on binges its a miracle im sober now for 2yrs. i used to tell my self that was the real reason i started again, but that only made the craving i already had more acceptable to myself to follow through. i was an addict and a horrible person. today i can say the opposite about myself and him.
