A long flight, a bad break-up, an abusive relationship, a natural disaster, a terrible disease, Middle School—life throws challenges at us all. For SixContest #111, we want to hear how you survived them. Tell us the story of how you found the strength to overcome life’s hardships in just six words. We'll send our top six-word scribe the brand new Six-Word Memoir keychain.

If you'd like to share a backstory (we love reading them!), or a photo, be sure to submit your entry as a six and include the link here in the comments. Please post only one entry per comment.

Remember to tag us and include #6WordSurvivalStories when posting your Six Words to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram!

This SixContest runs through Monday, April 30th at 3PM EDT. Submit your entries in the comments below or on our social media pages: (remember to tag @sixwords) | | |
