The confession chair

I’ve recently joined a group which the members randomly share their secret thoughts in a confession thread. No real judgments or commentary happens. Just simple people opening up about any number of things from the mundane to the awful. What do you think, is it lethargic to simply put all of that out in the open somewhere private where it will actually have no impact on your life? Is that enough?

I sometimes miss the confessional booth. I grew up Catholic, and one of the rites is to sit in a room or a cupboard and confess your sins and receive forgiveness. The simple act that could alleviate your soul. But was that enough? Did I ever actually feel cleansed?

How should we rid the thoughts and experiences that make us feel shame? Should we even feel shame?

Just some random questions for your day today.
