People Read Strangers’ Darkest Secrets


– “My best friend used to always
ask me to teach him how to swim, but I never did
because I was too lazy. He drowned in September.” – “Being born in America
to immigrant parents, sometimes I am ashamed
of my family’s broken English when I am out in public.” – “My biggest regret is saying
I wouldn’t cry if my mom died. She was given 2 years to live if her
health continued the way it was going, and I was too much of an angsty,
self-centered teenager to worry about anyone but myself.” – “I feel the pressure to do well in
school and to get into a good college. I wish grades didn’t have
to define someone’s worth. I started getting depressed while
my parents eventually split up. I never see my dad anymore, and I have a lot of pressure
from my mom to succeed.” Yeah… I went to a very competitive school. Um… Performance was essentially
like a source of validation, so I totally understand
where he’s coming from, because my school is kind of crazy. – “I’m ashamed of my body, but I tell other people
to love themselves.” I’m actually very active
on social media. It can be a lot of pressure,
’cause… Maybe I post something and
it seems like I’m very happy, but deep down,
I’m not having the best day. And there’s times where… I would feel ashamed of sharing it. – “When I was 4 until
I was 6 years old, I was molested by a babysitter. And when I told my father,
he told me to be quiet about it. He said that as a female,
my body is for men. This idea has stuck
with me ever since.” First and foremost,
I’d tell them it’s not their fault, also tell them that like it is a fight, learning how to understand
and to really internalize that like, you are your own person, and like
your body is yours and yours alone. – “My whole life, I’ve been made to
feel like I was undeserving of love. Both from myself and others, and I’m afraid that part
of me believes them.” Aw man, this one hits… – “When I was about 12 or 13, I realized what the word ‘rape’ meant,
and I just broke down. I remembered what had happened to
me, and it finally made sense to me, and the fact that I was rejected
from my own family, especially from my mom,
led to depression. I had nobody to talk to.” I can’t even imagine. I think because there’s
always a question of “Oh, like what could I have
done to avoid this?” “Oh, I should have seen the signs,”
“I should have stepped up,” “I should have said something.” But at the same time, you never know how you’re going to react
until you’re in a situation like that, and sometimes,
it’s completely out of your control. Hey guys,

  2. My best friend that I’ve loved since we were kids texted me asking me to hang out one night. We both loved each other since we were kids, and when we were 16 we hadn’t even kissed because our love was so strong and wanted each other in our lives always and not have romance ruin it while being teenagers and end up breaking up. So I didn’t reply that night and thought I’ll just text him tomorrow. The next day, I got a call from his sister saying he was murdered at night…. I will always hate myself for not seeing him that night. Maybe I could’ve changed the outcome. It’s been 10 years since he passed, and I still think about him everyday.

  3. I can relate to the whole I’m ashamed of my body but I tell other people to love themselves part. I literally hate everything about me. My nose,stomach,eyes,forehead,lips and my height. I tell people everyday to stop complaining and to love themselves bucease they really are pretty. I don’t know why I can’t take my own advice. No matter what people say I can never seem to love myself even if people say, I’m pretty or do this everyday is the mirror. It doesn’t work. I don’t know why I can’t just love myself for once.

  4. My secret: (if you wanted to hear it for some apparent reason)
    I was being bullied at my old school and it got serious when one of my best friend's grandparents read my diary. They continued to spread the details throughout the school, and school became a living hell. I remember getting kool-aid and pop rocks poured on me once before class. It was…interesting. I ended up shipping schools. It wasn't so bad, for I already knew most of the students. I used to attend that school before leaving then coming back. But within that first week, all the pressure really got to me.

    I tried to commit suicide when I was 11 years old. I survived, and now I want to become a therapist and a suicide hotline operator. However, I now have a fear of self harm. Seeing somebody do it can drive me into panic mode and make me burst into tears. What's worse is that my friends have pretended to cut themselves in front of me or tell me suicide stories or jokes, (with details of course) knowing it bothers me.

    The girl who's grandparents read my diary had to be homeschooled because their name was RUINED at my school. The name "Seiroaki" is considered an insult.

    My main bully could no longer afford her dance or singing lessons.

    My real friends and the whole class (which was pretty freaking awesome) confronted my other "friends"

    Burn, baby, burn!

  5. Ever since I was 7 my sister put me emotional down until I was 11 and I closed of from her and now she always complained that I don’t like her and that I never talk to her and she wishes she had a sister who wasn’t like me .

  6. Ok so my story is not as dark or "bad" as other people's, but here it goes.

    When I was 11 I met a girl (back then I studied at a female cristian school) this girl was a teacher's daughter. I started to talk to her and we became best friends, with the time, I eventually fell in love with her. I confessed to her my feelings and she felt the same way. Everething was happy and beautiful until our moms found out. Her mom told her to not talk to me ever again, and my mom changed me to a new school ( where I also lived a hell of bulliyng and molesting) and now results that she moved away outside the city and I will probably never see her again.

    If u read the whole thing, I can only say thank you for bothering. It really means a lot to me

  7. the one at 1:34 was like as if I wrote that…

    I don't love myself, but I tell people to love themselves…

  8. Umm this is one of my secrets that I never told enyone then my mom. My moms friend had a son and he was older than me and this one time his son……….rapped me….

  9. Reading these stories makes me greatful that whenever one of my dodgy uncles were around my mum would always make sure to keep me near her and would always tell me whenever he knocked on the door and I was alone in the house I shouldn't open it, he wouldn't understand that and would continuously knock which was low key scary. At the time I never knew the kinds of stuff he had done but as I grew older and learnt more I became so greatful that my mum was so protective. It hurts to see not everyones mum is like that because I feel as though I don't show my appreciation to my mum for all the sacrifices she's done for me. Sometimes I feel so selfish…

  10. I wish grades didn't have to define someone's worth

    That's the most beautiful, meaningful quote I've ever heard.

  11. I’m 13 yrs old a female,Bisexual,And Gender non binary I’m Scared of what will happen when my dad and relatives find out because I won’t be accepted and I hate making others happy and me not being happy deep on the inside

  12. I need help but my family won't let me have it. Because they don't think it's a problem. I'm on the edge of destrying my self. And don't know where to turn to

  13. I wish grade is not anyone’s identity. my family want me to be doctor or engineer but my grades are not that's good enough. It always broke my heart that i can't be what my loves ones want me to be

  14. I don't know who the curly haired man is, but he reminds me of my late husband in appearance and it hurts so bad to see him because of how awful my husband was. Otherwise love this video

  15. My darkest secret is..

    When i was 4 or 5? i kinda can’t remember my age..i was raped by my neighbor i was so innocent that time that i didn’t even know that he’s raping me he hop me into his bike..i think its 7pm that time then he bring somewhere that there’s nobody in there i can only see grass..I was so innocent that i didn’t even resist because i didn’t know what he was doing..But glad he didn’t killed me and still let me go..When i got home my parents ask me where did i go and i lied.. because i didn’t know what happened because i don’t have a clue that i have been raped and also we have a babysitter and my babysitter also raped me..im only 15.. and until now no one still knows what i have been through when i was 4 or 5?

  16. I kept a secret from my family I was touched many times by an other person I hid this for almost 5 years I think it's been so long idk but now that I came out for help and said what happened no one cares still so was I really hurt bc if I was then why didn't anyone tell me it was ok it wasn't your fault why do they laugh and never make me feel better about it

  17. “I am ashamed of my body.” This person’s choice of diction really shows how much they dislike themselves. I feel for this person and I am so terribly sorry. Hopefully she/he can find love within themselves and never be ashamed of how they look or how much they weigh. This goes out to all of you. It’s all about how you feel not how you look. It’s all mental and emotional. Love yourself no matter how you look♥️ Don’t look for approval.. your own love is the most important.

  18. No one rly used to like me in elementary school thru middle and it kinda stuck because I never rly got to feel getting liked by other boys and it sticks with me because I remember my friends would complain to me about not being liked and once it got to far and they said I wish I was you meaning they wish they didn't get liked and my strive was to fit in and get liked and stuff and it was hard to be able to know how it felt and I barely even know how it feels to this day

  19. watching this hurt…cause me myself hate my body, me, and everything about me, but yet I still go out and try my best to help everyone I can and tell them things that I was never told as much as they get to, like you’re beautiful, and things like that. yes, I do get called beautiful by family and etc, but to me, it’s already set in my head that they have to say that as my family…but although it may or may not be true I still choose to help others than really help myself…

  20. A friend of mine recently comitted suicide, my brother told me because i was sick home from school, it hurt me really bad when he told me.

    But when it was time for the funeral, i was there in the front row with my teamates cuz he used to be in our handbalteam, a lot of people were either crying or trying to hold it in, but i didnt feel anything at the time, when my mom came to me to see how i was, i snapped, i hugged her, crying, but i didnt cry because i felt sad, i cried because i didnt feel anything, i wanted to be sad, angry, anything at all, but i couldnt get myself to care enough to cry for him

  21. “My best friend used to always ask me to teach him how to swim, but I never did because I was too lazy”

    “…he drowned in September…”

    That is deep 😢

  22. uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

  23. I’ve always been so insecure and embarrassed of my mom and dad for being mexican and I always felt so frustrated with them because they couldn’t speak proper English I remember once in public I started crying because I just wish I had “normal” parents, But when my parents split up I never even got to hear my dads voice ever again. 🙁 Now I appreciate them so much for coming to a better country to raise me in a better place and get good education.

  24. The one about the mum passing away at the start made me upset. The mum was probably so lonely and just wanted her kids to be happy

  25. I treat everyone the same with respect and care, i know that everyone has a story behind them their hardships and their struggles is always in everyones lives at one point, Just push through any trouble that ur having it gets better in life it may not seem like it but it will.

  26. I actually hate my body and myself ! But I say to others that "you have to love your self" and "everyone love their body"

  27. This can really hurt I have a big secret that I will alwayd keep to myself forever, but im not ready to tell the world yet of what it is…

  28. I was so offended and hurt when the girls father said as a female our body is for men, like wtf is wrong with telling his own flesh and skin the not to saying thing he one disgusting and pathetic person. Men need to understand that we are toys and they need to learn how respect is women, is crazy that thought would even cross somebody's mind

  29. It's a good thing No one has read my darkest secrets… They would probably call the cops on me.

    I'm a really fucked up person.

  30. Here i go..
    My bestfriend choked me with her hands i can't rember why i burried it in my mind. It scarred me, after she told me to die or she whould her my family. I told her the next day she said she didn't say that. I knew she was lieing. It raked me 5 months to get used to my friends again. My friends cant touch my neck without me having a panic attack.

  31. My secret

    I have some memory of my uncle used to touch me inappropriately when I was little. It was when my parents leave me in my aunt's house when they go out at night. I never told anyone about this not even my parents or my aunt. I had no idea about sexual assault and I don't even know what to say. Every time when I remembered that I would say to myself that it wasn't real the scariest thing is I only remember some parts not all of it. Now I'm 19 I get to see him everyday but it all seems normal as I never been alone with him. He hasn't done anything like that ever since. But I hate when my dad strokes me or try to express his love by holding me or hugging me. But for my mom it's different I don't mind her doing things like that but sometimes I don't like anyone touching me at all, I feel bad that I feel that way of my dad but it happens naturally. I now kinda think it has something to do with that experience I've been through. And today my dad accidentally opened the bathroom and he immediately closed it I'm scared if he saw me naked I don't know what came over me but I cried so hard I feel so gross now..

  32. in the 6th grade i was at a low point in my life and decided to start cutting. eventually my parents found out and instead of being there for me, they beat me. it was so bad to the point i couldn’t barley walk. missed 2 weeks of school and no one else ever found out. it’s been 4 years since the incident and my parents don’t know they were the reason i started cutting in the first place. i want to go to therapy but i’m scared if i tell them they’ll beat me again.

  33. My story is that when ever I’m somewhere other than my house I tend to pee a lot.. like what I’m saying is that I would think I have to but I don’t rlly need to.. whenever I’m at school I get nervous and keep looking at the clock and suddenly I would think “what happen if I pee here.. and everyone would make fun of me” then whenever that stuck to my head I would go to the bathroom, like I have to go to bathroom probably 6 times whenever I’m at school and idek why, but one time I was soo nervous I ask the teacher to go to the bathroom 8 times.. he ask me what’s wrong I told him I have a “balder infection” but I rlly don’t, I don’t do this when I’m home.. I’m just scared of the thought of me thinking to peeing bcux I can’t hold it and just pee on the floor.. idk why I’m like this, in gr 3 i peed near a pool cuz it was a dare and I cried cuz I needed to pee in gr 4.. it’s getting worse now I’m having problem eating outside because I don’t want to puke.. can someone tell me if this is anxiety or not?.. I rly don’t know

  34. I don’t think that my depression meds will work I tell other to be happy and worry about them but not myself. I just sit and listen to them while hiding scars.

  35. This is really sad because I know lots of people with depression and they are afraid to talk about these topics that nobody can talk about and it can only be told behind closed doors.

  36. What type of father would say that the female body if for men and I feel women's rights are violated. As a man I would never say those words to a woman or anyone because of what a dark path it takes women to

  37. Also why do your grades choose your path in life because they are wrong. No matter if you struggle in school and your bad are bad it won't stop you from wanting to be something that other people say you can't be because of your grades

  38. This is why you can never judge people. You never know what people are going through or what they went through.

  39. i am a female, that means I can’t be charming can’t be funny do what men want me to do that means I have to do what is expected of me like go to the beach with my friends I have to clean the house I can’t be good at sports have to be smart and I have to have sex when a men asks me too… I I have convinced myself that this is true for so many years now I realise it is till true 😶

  40. the one about the broken-english i can relate because my mother doesn’t speak very good english and whenever she tries i tell her to stop and once i saw her break down

  41. That I became a rebel in school, everyone thought I was trying to be cool,it wasn't…I was so self conscious about my ADHD I didn't want anyone to interact with me so I thought the best way was by making them scared.

    I regret it. It was horrible to see people avoiding me,even though it was what I wanted. The worst was when they dashed to the side and stared. I felt like a monster,I was just to scared to talk to anyone. This happened for nearly 5 years. I hated even more when I was scaring younger children. I'd scream into my pillow every night.

    That's my deepest secret.

  42. Super horrible that I thought I’d be able to use the website better help. Yet they charge a weekly fee. Talk about one more hit to depression.

  43. The people around me including my family always say that my Body is for men…
    And now they didn't know that I'm having a hard time, I'm depressed because of those words😭😭
    And I'm ashamed of my body…
