We’ve all heard the old saying that “Confession is good for the soul”. Well it actually come from an old Scottish proverb “Open confession is good for the soul”. Truthfully I don’t know what the word “Open” adds to the saying but whatever. Some secrets will eat away at your soul like a infection such as murder, or infidelity, or voting for Trump. But truthfully spilling your guts all the time and to anyone that will hear it will make you very unpopular. So there has to be a happy medium. If you took the last cookie from the cookie jar, maybe just keep that to yourself. If you lied to your parents and went to that raging party instead of the library, yeah maybe tell them (years later when they can’t punish you). I was raised Catholic so we had the Sacrament of Confession to fall back on. For those non-Catholics out there that’s when you go into that dark little closet with a partition between you and the priest (for anonymity) and you confess your sins, he’ll dole out some penance, then you get absolution. I won’t get into the difference between Mortal sins and Venial sins, if you really want there’s Wikipedia. So since confession is good for the soul I wanted to help those out there that might have something to get off their chest with the hashtag #ForgiveMeFatherForIHave. So check out the top list below and don’t forget to join me every Tuesday at 11 am EDT for the next exciting episode of “Hashtag, You’re It”.
