There are things that I don't write about in this space. Things that I can't tell even my closest friends. They are the fleeting thoughts, little confessions about being a mom and a wife that usually disappear in an instant. I know you have them too.
Parenting and marriage aren't easy states to live in, we make mistakes, we hurt people and we think hurtful things. Sometimes we only need to read someone else's dark thoughts to feel a little less alone, sometimes confessing our sins makes the load a little lighter,
The Internet has become our online confessional booth, so much so that there is now an "App for that". But if you don't have an iPhone, there are numerous anonymous sites that allow you to unload your darkest feelings and thoughts in the hopes that you will feel a little better, a little more able to carry on through the day.
People's confessions are a reflection of the tiny and large emotions that we carry through our day. Some confessions are about the little things: how a wife hates her husband's morning breath, in others you can hear the betrayal, the anger and the confusion. Mothers saying how they feel alone, or favour one child, or feel bad because they forgot to pack their kids lunch.
So where can you go if you want confess a bad wife or bad mom moment?
