BBS、博客、微博、个性签名,等等,这个网络时代我们有太多可以表达自己的平台。只要你想表达,只要你不怕别人看见,想写什么就可以写什么。可是,有一些事情只想自己看到,只想跟自己分享,但是又不想让它存在心里,怎么办呢?那就去发“树洞帖”吧。


It is said that in the past, people tended to dig a small hole in a tree, hide their secret in it and then seal it with mud so no one else would know it. Today, in the virtual world of cyberspace, many love to post their secrets on the Internet anonymously. It makes them feel just like hiding their secrets in tree holes, that’s why it is called tree hole post. Some may also find it stimulating to see others’ response to their secrets.

有人说,以前人们有秘密的时候就会在树上挖一个小洞,对着洞口说出秘密,然后再用泥把这个小洞给封上,就不会有人知道这个秘密了。如今,在虚拟的网络世界里,也有很多人喜欢匿名在网上发帖讲述自己的秘密。这种方式感觉跟把秘密封藏在树洞里差不多,因此这种帖就被称为“树洞帖”。有些人在看到自己的帖子有回复时甚至还会觉得很兴奋。

For example:

I am living in hell with this secret in my mind, maybe I should try to put it into a tree hole post and give myself a break.

脑子里藏着这个秘密,我每天都在受煎熬。或许我应该去发个树洞帖,也好让自己松口气。
