True Confessions Day

Just about every person on the planet has a secret of some kind. It might be just a small secret, but it’s there nonetheless. And sometimes, these secrets can have a negative effect on a person’s mental and emotional well-being. In those instances, it’s better for the person to confess and relieve themselves of this burden.

The perfect day for doing just that is True Confessions Day. This holiday is observed annually on March 15th and encourages all those people who are harboring secrets to relieve themselves of their burden by confessing. It’s amazing how something so simple can have such a profound effect on people’s lives.

The History of True Confessions Day

This holiday was first created by Thomas and Ruth Roy in 2016. As described by their site, this is a holiday that encourages people to unburden themselves through confession. They can head to work and confess to their co-workers, book an appointment with a priest, or simply confess to themselves in the mirror.

Observing True Confessions Day

Obviously, this is a holiday that each person is going to want to observe in their own way. After all, confessing one’s “sins” is a very personal experience. Some people may choose to do so in public, while others will choose to make confessions to someone they trust.

Some people will even just write the things that they want to get off their chest on a piece of paper and then burn them in a fire. No matter how a person chooses to celebrate this day, however, they should take the time to circulate the hashtag #TrueConfessionsDay to let other people know of this holiday.

Everyone everywhere can take an opportunity to unburden themselves simply by confessing what they’ve done wrong, making reparations when appropriate, forgiving themselves, and then moving on with their lives.
