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!
