Reading people's secrets from postsecret depresses me

Reading people's secrets from postsecret depresses me, it depresses my friend too.I know you're probably thinking "if it depresses you, then stop reading them! " But it's like watching a car crash, gruesome but attractive at the same time.And I also don't understand how some people can feel better about their lives by reading other people's secrets, well I do understand, but to me I just feel too emotionally disturbed and feel deeply for that person, unless it's a funny secret on postsecret.Guess it's called compassion?

you can have compassion without depressing yourself over postsecrets xP i've cried for many people and their secrets but i still feel better overall about life because i feel more connected...i think most people get a little sad when they read them and they feel for the people on there but i don't think you have a right to say your reaction is compassion and those of us who feel better don't have compassion, what you are experiencing is an extreme form of empathy which is also kinda normal considering...if the depression is too much for you then indeed the healthy thing to do is to stop because you being depressed is helping no one...not you or the people who's secrets you read...
