This is intended as a safe environment. Please read the rules and remember to remain kind and civil

A full list of rules can be found HERE. Please ensure you understand /r/confession's rules before posting and/or commenting.

Submission Rules

All submissions must be a confession

  • A confession is defined in this subreddit as: (1) An acknowledgement or admission of wrongdoing; and/or (2) a statement admitting that you are guilty of a wrongdoing.

  • Currently, we do not accept posts that encourage rape/rape culture, sexualise minors, are racist, pornographic, pedophilloic, suicidal, or relationship-based. There are subreddits out there more well-suited to these types of posts.

  • An unpopular opinion is not a confession, nor is your sexual exploration.
  • With the exception of [light] posts, we do not accept posts with limited context.
  • Meta posts are for moderator use only, please create your own title.

Your submission must contain at least one tag in the body of the post or it will be removed by our automoderator. The tags are as follows:

[No Regrets] - If you don't feel bad for your actions.

[Remorse] - For those that feel bad for their actions

[Light] - For casual and/or positive confessions.

[Support Only] - OP only wants supportive advice

[Tough Love] - OP is okay with commentators being more honest/blunt.

Comment Rules

  • Keep your comments kind & civil. Any form of abuse is not permitted. While disagreeing and constructive advice is openly welcome, if you are unable to refrain from abusive word choice, please refrain from commenting in that thread instead.
  • Please do not encourage harmful/illegal behaviour.
  • Accusations of fake posts are not allowed.
  • No memes/trolling.
  • No attempts to identify OP.

Violations will be removed. Repeat violations will result in a ban. See below for removal and ban appeal processes
