A Hangout of One’s Own

SecretOver the weekend I found this "place" called Her Bad Mother’s Basement. I’m saying "place" in quotes because it’s, you know virtual, but the point is real. It’s a space for parents to go and say whatever they need to get off the chests and then recieve supportive feedback from others. I found it both heartbreaking and sincere and really good to know about, because there comes a time in everyone’s life when you have a thought, a feeling, a fear, or a problem that you really can’t tell another soul—but you wish you could. I’ve always loved Post Secret but more as a reader—I don’t think that’s where I would go if I was really tortured by something. So, if ever you need an irony-free, snark-free zone (and who doesn’t) to just chill anonymously check this out.

    I agree, HBM’s Basement provides a much needed space to let it all out.

    Haha…I have a place like that too! But mine is not supportive. My rule is that you’re not there to read, you’re there to say what you have to say and get it off your chest and be done with it. :) Kind of the same…only opposite.
    I was going to ask if that was you, too, Judy!! haahaha.
