There is a website I found in a book (Rumors of Another World by Philip Yancey pg. 101) that is called Visitors to this site can post their sins anonymously. Listen to these voices of sadness…

If I could smack every co-worker and take their responsibilities and salaries, I’d do it. If I could take all competitors incomes and services, I’d do it. If I could hit your face and steal your wallet without looking you in the eye, I would do it.

Sloth: I should be working now, but I am doing this instead.

When my father was in a psychiatric hospital after a suicide attempt, I wouldn’t visit him to get back at him.

i go to college. i used the money i should have spent on housing to buy dope, alcohol, entertainment, and food. i am bad, i know it, but stopping is soooo hard.

I wish I was rich. I want to buy things I don’t need with money I can afford to waste.

I want one laptop, one cool flip phone, one Mercedes, two beers everyday for the rest of my life, and one million bucks in my bank account, that is all I want.

I lie about things I have done to hide the fact that my life has been a meaningless timeline of uninteresting events, characters and experiences. I lie to make up for the fact that I have no soul…

People feel disconnected. There is a strong desire to find one’s place in the grand scheme of things. To be a part of something bigger than ourselves, to reach out and do things we’d never accomplish alone. The problem is, we are so busy with all the crap that life throws at us, that we often fail to take the first step towards trying to find the life that calls to us from beyond.
