Brighton Station's 'Waiting Wall' Reveals Commuters' Deepest Darkest Confessions

Please be aware this article contains sensitive issues that could be highly distressing to some.

"I am married with a wonderful son, but am so in love with an ex-partner that my heart feels dead," an anonymous commuter revealed on Brighton's Waiting Wall.

The wall is a new initiative launched as part of the city's digital festival.

Although it is a temporary feature intended to mirror Jerusalem's Wailing Wall, it gives commuters a window of opportunity to air their deepest and darkest thoughts without giving away their identity.

The display, which runs from September 21 to September 27, was inspired by author and philosopher Alain de Botton.

He says: "The wall would offer a basic yet infinitely comforting – public acknowledgement that … none us are alone in the extent of our troubles."

The messages that have been posted so far range from deeply personal stories to general musings about life.
