Craigslist ConfessionalEd and engaged in a way she hadn’t in a long time Inspired she posted an ad on Craigslist promising to listen anonymously and for free to whatever the speaker felt he or she couldn’t tell anyone else The response was huge thousands of emails flooded her inbox People were desperate for the opportunity to speak without being judged to tell a story without worrying it would get back to friends family or coworkers and so Craigslist Confessional was born The forty confessions in Craigslist Confessional are vivid intimate and real Each story is told in the confessor’s voice; they range from devastating secrets like addiction depression and trauma to musings on lost love and reflections on a lifetime of hard choices Some con. 5 StarsCraigslist Confession contains very short stories and they all actually did happen I don’t think if I read a true story before so this was a very good experience Not all of them were pleasant but life isn’t always what we want it to be Some of the stories left me heartbroken I wanted to reach out to those people and comfort them Some of them made me so mad some sad some made me happy and seeing that you still can have hope even in the worst situations was so good Some of them made me confused of not knowing what to think You could feel the realness of the stories in your bones because if they're not your story they can be your neighbor’s or friend’s All in all loved it and hope you enjoy it as well
