In this video, a man tells just a few of the half million secrets he has received. Many of those secrets stuck out to me, but there were two main ones. One of those secrets was from a Starbucks employee who gave rude customers decaf. The other was an unused suicide letter in an envelope, mailed to the man.

I found the Starbucks secret really funny. I always make sure I'm polite to people and I can't stand it when people are rude, so I find this a brilliant way to get back in a subtle way. The suicide secret affected me a lot because it showed that someone was at that low point and managed to rise above it all to become happy again.

Three Inspirational Quotes

1. "I know how it feels to be completely alone and helpless, and the last thing you want to hear in that situation is, 'It's going to be OK.' "The only thing that seems to really help is that someone else who has felt that low expressing those feelings to you." - Amy Lee

2. "As a woman I feel offended because these artists portray women as people that can only do well in the world by selling their bodies. I'm determined to help prove that to be false." - Amy Lee

3. "If all we ever sang about was how happy we are, we would be lying to ourselves. People try to escape their problems by getting drunk, partying and dancing them away. What really heals me is to sit down and think, face the facts, then you can get over it and be happy." - Amy Lee

1. I love this quote because I feel that it's so true. Sometimes, hearing not that it's going to be ok, and instead talking about your feelings with somebody who understands works wonders.

2. I agree a lot with this quote. In today's society, women are depicted as skinny, beautiful, with tight stomachs, perfect legs, and flawless skin. Amy Lee is a little bit overweight and I think she's beautiful. She's trying to prove to people that you don't need to look like the girls in the media to be beautiful, and to me, this is one of the most inspirational things out there.

3. I love this quote so much because I can really emphasize with it. In my opinion, people deal with their problems in the wrong way - drinking, smoking, drugs, etc. I think it's a lot more efficient to sit down and think about them.
