This postcard from PostSecret really made me feel a little better.

PostSecret: You Need Not Find A Cure

It reads:

You need not find a cure for everything that makes you weak…

For years, I tried to find a cure for my low self-esteem until I realized that I didn’t need to feel good about myself in order to be a success. Sure, I’m weaker because I don’t have a good self-esteem, but I’m able to survive without it. And that’s what’s important.

Update 02-08-10: According to Shannon in the comments, this line is from the song, Against the Grain by City and Colour.

PostSecret‘s beneficiary is the National Hopeline Network. It is a 24-hour hotline (1 (800) SUICIDE) for anyone who is thinking about suicide or knows someone who is considering it.



  1. I sent this secret in. This wasn’t my secret. My secret was written on the back. This is from a song by City and Colour called “Against the Grain”. My secret was: I sincerely believe that this song can change lives.

    Please listen to it.

  2. I just want to let you know that this song did change my life! And I was so excited to see it as a post secret
