Six Word Memoirs

I recently purchased Six-Word Memoirs on Love and Heartbreak after reading this post by Lulled by the Train (an awesome blog btw!).

I read the entire book (which is thin anyway) in one sitting. Reading the words was both beautiful and heartbreaking. I found myself over and over again sympathizing with the writers because in six words, you could actually get an entire story. I cried and I gasped and I laughed out loud. And then, for a few, I sat in silence because I felt the pain.

And it's made me think about my six word story. What would I write?

You? Idiot. Me? Strong. Us? NEVER.
I'm glad it didn't work out.
I'm the diamond You can't have.
I won't compromise for you. Ever.
I thank God everyday for you.
Thank You for saving my life.
It was God that changed me.
I hate your Drama. Go away.
Too bad You're Only a Dream.
I wish you'd lived for me.
Clarity comes at your expense. Oops.

or maybe just...

My Life is Bigger Than This.
or this...

Thought I'd be married by 30.

What would you say? What is your Six Word Story???

"I was made to live forever." If I do what I am supposed to, I will never die. He died so that I could live forever.
