People Confess Things Everyone Does But No One Actually Admits To

We've all done some embarrassing things in our lives, and we may do what we can to keep them a secret.

Whether it was something legitimately embarrassing or something like not taking the best care of ourselves, sometimes it's easier to keep those behaviors private than to have a tough or awkward conversation about them.

Curious about others' behaviors, Redditor MrTuxedo1 asked:

"What does everyone do but won’t admit?"

In Great Company

"To talk to themselves when they’re alone."

- Scandroid99

Concealing Passed Gas

"At the beginning of my relationship, I would wait until we walking in heavy traffic and let it go. He heard me once and now every time a bus goes by, he gives me a sideways look."

- FloptimasPloptimas

The Alternate Ending

"To imagine what life would be like with your crush, even as an adult."

- Oppxma

So Haunting

"To lay awake at night, remembering everything that you’ve done wrong in your entire life in 30 seconds, and then just lying there thinking about each and every one of them individually until you’ve got to get up and do something the next day."

- Summertime64

Kitchen Secrets

"To click a pair of tongs together twice whenever they pick a pair up."

- ESlayer12

Complaints Aplenty

"Probably to complain. People say, 'No one likes a complainer,' but everyone I’ve ever met complains about crap."

- Mysterious_Fisher

New Surroundings

"To secretly wish certain people… would move away."

- usercb


"To think about compliments given by someone years ago."

- SuvenPan

Awake for Hours

"To pretend like they weren’t sleeping when a phone call wakes them up."

- Ddubs111


"I remember seeing a while back, one user’s dad apparently had a saying, 'We all pick our noses… it’s what we do afterwards that separates us.'"

- Burgher89

Being Judgmental

"Judge. We all do it. It’s about being intelligent enough to not let that cloud our perspective."

"Also, I mean, sometimes it's okay and even good to judge. Sometimes people are bad for you to be around, and that's important to recognize."

"Being judgmental is only a bad thing if you're overly so and/or do it for bad reasons, imo. But even with that, yeah, we all do it."

- Maleficient_Hawk_318

Past Connections

"To wonder if people that have since long disappeared from your life (or you've only met once or twice) from time to time still think about you."

- Ioakpaa

The Next Great Singer

"I tried to sing, like, really good. When I'm alone, I be hitting those high notes, even though I sound like a dying walrus."

- kumorithecloud

Imaginary Comebacks

"To have (and even win) an argument with a stranger from an encounter three years ago when you didn't say anything at the time."

- mrandymoz

Avoiding Healthcare

"To not go to see the doctor when they know they should."

- SuvenPan

Most of these activities seem mundane, and that's because we've all done them, whether we want to admit to it or not.

But like anything else, there are limits. While it might be okay to reminisce or to explore guilty feelings from time to time, these aren't activities that should take place every night.

Though it's often used as the butt of jokes, there's still a lot to appreciate in the United States, whether you live there or are visiting.

But there are also a lot of things that leave onlookers infinitely perplexed about what it's actually like to live in the United States and why they do things like that.

When you were younger, your protected perspective on life and the world was probably significantly different compared to now.

Before life experience informed your decisions, younger you most likely had higher aspirations to achieve a specific goal or swore off doing something you found objectionable.

But here you are, as an adult, doing the exact opposite of what you had intended.

Finding love is something that nearly everyone hopes for at some point in their life.

For some, love practically finds them. They hardly need any time searching for the true love.

Others might have to work a little harder and be a little more patient. They never give up the hope that their one true love is out there, somewhere.

Then there are those for whom the search simply isn't worth it and have found themselves resigned to the fact that they may never find someone.

Whether or not that's how they want their life to be.

A resume is so much more than just a simple list of your work experience.

Indeed, your resume is the first step in getting your foot in the door to your dream job, highlighting not only your past experience but your skill set, as well as things about you that will make recruiters want to get to know you more.

On the flip side, sometimes there are things on your resume that will automatically send you to the reject pile.

Of course, this is bound to include common, careless mistakes such as spelling and grammar errors or missing vital information, such as a phone number or email.

However, no two hiring managers will have the same set of red flags they look for on a resume. This can make finding a format that will please everyone something of a fool's errand.
