    Six Words On: Hindsight is 2020

    BY TeamSixWords on December 3, 2020

    When we say, “Hindsight is 20/20,” we reflect on our victories and losses, avoidable mistakes, and impulsive decisions. We like to imagine how things could have gone differently, whether it happened last week or five years ago. For Six Contest #136, as a legendary 2002 draws to a close, it’s the perfect time to look back.

    What kind of advice would you give to your past selves? Maybe you wish you could have warned your high school self to not ignore those red flags, or given your pre-pandemic self a little heads up. What lessons did you have to learn the hard way? Do you wish you knew then what you know now? Or are you glad things played out the way they did?

    If you'd like to share a backstory (we love reading them!), be sure to submit your entry as a Six and include the link to the Backstory here in the comments below. Share as many stories as you like, but do post only one entry per comment.
