18 People Reveal What They’re Afraid Others Will Learn After They’re Long Gone

If there’s one thing that my true crime obsession has taught me, it’s that we can never truly know other people. Everyone has secrets, and some of them will only come out if people feel like sharing them.

These 18 people have some secrets of their own, and they fear what could happen or what others might think if they learn these truths after their deaths.

18. I hope they listened.

I seriously heard about a girl that had labeled her box full of toys: please throw away without opening.

You don’t want to see this.

For her family in case she died and they had to clean her stuff.

17. Well that’s awkward.

I found my friend’s penis pump and he was right there. lol.

16. Make sure to die with your clothes on.

Small pp.

15. Just a little too late.

A cure for what killed me.

Type 1 diabetic here and every year feels closer to a cure and yet further from it being able to help me.

14. Embrace your inner nerd.

My Warhammer, got back into it during lockdown and didn’t tell my girlfriend.

It’s the one super nerdy thing that I do that I’m actually a little embarrassed about lol.

13. I mean, why worry?

Doesn’t matter, I’ll be dead.

12. What a plan.

The password to “End of the World Files” which is a folder that just contains pr0n, backed up in all my devices,

If the world goes to s**t and I still have my phone, I better bust out the last one before nuclear death

11. Have a party and burn those babies.

All my journals.

They might find my plans to become the totalitarian dictator of the world or open my own fromagerie.

10. A dirty little secret.

That i’m secretly in love with Taylor Swift . I am happily married father of five …. And a metalhead 😐

9. Aren’t we all?

That I’m actually two children in a trench coat.

8. Rest in peace.

My 1TB HD Hentai Collection.

I misplaced that Hard Drive. If I dont find it Out Before my death and Destroy it, I can’t REST IN PEACE.

7. You can’t trust anyone.

My personal diary.

My mom asked my dad not to read her journals. He didn’t respect her wishes and gave me one of them after she died.

It was weird to read. A few of things that stood out to me: “at least my marriage has good s^x” and “a good day is when I’m not constantly thinking about suicide.”

I appreciate getting more insight into who she was and the struggles she went through but when I read that as a teen I didn’t know what to think.

Moral of the story, don’t trust your spouse to burn before reading

6. That’s depressing.

When no one shows up to my funeral, and they realize I actually had no friends or people that care.

5. That you’re boring.

I’m afraid they have nothing to discover.

4. At least you don’t have to clean it up.

Me, face down, with a pair of pants absolutely FILLED with poops

3. It runs in the family.

How much of a filthy sex fiend I was.

I was tasked with clearing my granddad’s browsing history after he died. I knew he was a dirty ol man, but god d**n.

Anyway, his secrets die with me.

2. There’s still time to change that.

How absolutely miserable I’ve been in my life. All the pain i’ve carried with me through the years.

I’ve been good at keeping up with social activities, work, relationships, etc. and seeming happy.

But it would break my moms heart to know how long I’ve suffered.

1. They might think less of you.

This right here. I feel like I live a good and healthy life. I spend my career helping others and I always try to be kind to all people.

I always think of people at my funeral and hope they’d say awesome things but I mostly just worry about whoever gets to go through my phone and see how much porn I have saved.

It’s nothing too awful but I worry that others may think less of me since most people I know are more reserved with that kind of thing.

I’ve got a pact with my best friend to destroy all of my electronic devices if something happens to me. You?

What are you worried people might learn after your death? We swear what’s said in the comments stays in the comments!
