Six Word Story:

Always taunting me from a distance.

About This Six Word Story:

As I mentioned in previous posts, it’s mental health awareness week during mental health awareness month. And therefore, I thought that I would share posts about mental health for the rest of the week. Since I generally share six word stories once a week or so, this week I decided to share one that would be in theme with the rest of the mental health related posts.

Many of my readers already know this, but I suffer from both anxiety and depression. And this six word story is based on my experiences with both. Especially my anxiety. Oftentimes, it feels as though the symptoms never truly go away and are just waiting to strike. You basically just have to live your best life despite the symptoms.

Have you ever experienced mental health issues? Do you have anxiety or depression? If so, what are some ways through which you decrease or contain the symptoms? Let me know in the comments section located below because I would love to hear from you. And don’t forget to leave your own six word story about mental health. Or simply. stop by and say hi in the comments section!

  1. Very interesting image. I think I mentioned this elsewhere – maybe here – but I’ve come to believe that a lot of stuff we perceive – emotional and otherwise – actually originates from beyond ourselves. I guess this is what you mean or imply by “a distance?”

    When I go to a quiet, mid-week Mass it’s like a larger lens comes over me and I can really see all the sh** that has been vexing me, bringing me down, etc. That’s just my path for now, but I thought I’d share.

    Thanks for bringing it up. I’ve been trying to raise awareness (as I see it) and increase alternative discourses on mental health for a long time! 🙂

    1. Thank you so much and thanks for sharing your experience. I agree I think taking a step back really helps a lot when it comes to mental health.

      1. Yeah I guess a bit of ‘seeing’ and a bit of thinking. Last night at a gathering I got a bit carried away and actually called someone by my own name when I mean to use their name! I took it as an indication to shut up and, as you say, step back. 🙂

          1. I tend to go more with Carl Jung’s take on so-called “parapraxes” (Freudian slips) but who knows. Over time I usually find – or create – a holistic explanation. 🙂

            “Unlike Freud, Jung believed that unintended slips don’t always refer back to the person making them. Parapraxes can point to an entire interactive situation among several or, perhaps, many people.”


  2. Hey! Just found your blog and I honestly really enjoy reading your posts! Look forward to seeing more from you soon, loved this post (:


  3. I have a Ph.D in cognitive narratology. It therefore worries me that so few people seem to understand what a story actually is. Otherwise, the notion of a 6-word story is totally fascinating. I have yet to read one. Sorry, folks.

    1. Haha I know it’s not actually a story but it’s easier to call it a “Six Word Story” then to call it a “Six Word Sentence That Will Turn Into A Story If You Use Your Imagination” 😜
