Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

Now I love with a limp.

He had a midlife crisis with a much younger woman and an expensive meth addiction. He chose both of them over me and our three kids. His girlfriend left a few months into their epic love story for a younger man. The ex said he wanted me back after she left him. I could never forget all the pain, so I said no. Later I realized, I don't love him anymore.

He ruined a lot of memories. I don't even remember what it felt like to feel that way.
