everyone, group hug!

Make a confession about anything, anonymously, on group hug. Or, just keep on reading them. More and more. And read more. And eventually you will feel guilty about reading so many and wasting your time. And post your own confession like this:

i have spent allday reading these confessions and have done absolutely no work. Furthermore I sent the link to many of my friends who have also spent hours reading it. Its strangely addictive in a voyeuristic kinda of way.

Fascinating and brilliant.


I read a couple and they freaked me out. I think there are some things one should keep to ones self.

Where do you find these sites? =)

OK, some of today's current frontpage confessions updates are pretty nasty.

However, I've found many entries to be touching, and some are pretty cute. Yea, sure, a lot of them are about sex and cheating on him or her and this and that, but there are gems in there too.

After reading so many of them, I start to wonder what people I'd walk by on the street have to confess. These are human beings, and they're all around us, and we don't know these things about them. Where are they coming from? Where are they going? What are they thinking about?

I think the site is great.

In answer to your question on my page-Nader said that independents support him. He didn't really elaborate. He's just a big bag of gas.

The "pretty cute" one was cool, but most of that website seems to be full of "get-this-off-my-chest-so-i-don't-feel-so-sinful" kind of confessions.

I'm not gonna go back to the website, but I can understand how tempting it is to learn more about thoughts that people can't usually say. This site certainly gives a little insight to how people in our society think these days.

It's a very personal site, I think, and that's what draws me to it. I know some folks who are pretty addicted to it, and they've been spending substantial portions of their days reading confessions of people they don't know.

Well, here's one of my own.

When I was in sixth grade, I once went to a Service Merchandise store and stole one of those videogame watches. It was a Batman game. I don't know why I did it, and I didn't particularly want the watch that badly. I think I saw an open package and it was just peeking out so I just grabbed it. My father later discovered what I'd done and was very upset.

I went through the shop lifting thing in my youth. I felt horrible about it too.

I only really have one point of real guilty feelings though- over someone I was responsible for firing. It was one of the after school programs I was responsible for. Long story but ugh, that one haunts me cause I think she was just clueless and didn't *intend* to be a bad worker. I mean we did have legitimate issues like on a field trip to Great America she took off with two older kids and left the other 35 with two people. And bascially she was like one of the kids that way. But like I said, good natured. I have actually had to fire other people but they were more full of guile than she was, I dont feel guilty about them. I hate personnel crap and don't want to EVER do that kind of thing again.

Hey Carol, thanks for sharing your story (oh, great, I sound like a I'm in a self-help seminar).

Anyways, it don't see any reason for you to be guilty. Granted, it sounds like she was a nice person, but... like you said, she was a bad worker. And it's ultimately a job she was doing, and she wasn't doing it the way she was supposed to. So, it's reasonable that she couldn't stay.

No worries. I think you did The Right Thing(tm).
