Post-Secret. Too gauche? Or is it the ultimate cyber-therapy? A little post card mailed to the unknown in hopes of seeing it online, and thus feel one's troubles alleviated by the validation of anonymous strangers who don't judge; one's sins excused by anonymous sinners or reveled in by tacit approval: publication.
But does it help?
I think it helps the narcissist to see themselves "out there" else why do we blog? But mostly, I think it's emotional voyeurism for the rest of us. Soap Operas writ small for the Twitter Set.
There's only so much drama and personal interaction we can sustain in this fast-paced society. Even your own family will proffer all sorts of squishy sentiments and offers of help, but in the end, it's a bit of soft-soap. If your troubles are large enough, they'll all back away, smiling, offering to pray for you.
Maybe the reduction to prayer is the real Secret.
