People Are Broken

I am on Twitter. I recently began following @secrettweet, sort of a Twitter version of PostSecret (content warning), so that I would have a regular humbling reminder of something I so easily forget about myself and others.

A sample of the @secrettweet feed:
5885 I have known for years that my dad is cheating on my terminally ill step-mom, and I don't have the heart to tell anyone.

5877 I know he was married, and they had three kids. He didnt care. Why should i?

5794 I feel like I'm taking my grandmother's death too lightly. For me, she was gone 2 years ago when she developed a mental disease.

5783 every man i've met recently is not ready to 'date'. But now they've moved on & are 'dating' someone else. what's wrong with me?

5702 my roommate's half of the room REALLY smells, but i don't want to tell him about it because i don't want to come off as mean.

5721 i like facebook because my friends know my birthday and acknowledge it, unlike my family who forgot.

5639 I am always worried about money, I just wish I had enough self control to get out of overdraft

5571 i love my children but sometimes hate being a mother.

5661 I'm agoraphobic and can't go to a doctor on my own. Someone see that I'm dying and help me. PLEASE.
