When the 6 of Cups appears reversed there may be memories you are blocking. You may be choosing to only remember the bad parts of your past, and overlooking the good memories. Or, it may be that your memories are too painful and you are choosing not to see them. Though it might hurt, letting those memories flow through you may help you in your present situation.
You may be ignoring the kindness someone is trying to share with you or refusing to be kind to someone. Ask yourself why you have such resistance to letting this person in.
The 6 of Cups Reversed can also point to immaturity. You may be acting childish in order to avoid dealing with an unpleasant aspect of your life.
Finally, this card could be a reminder to you to lighten up. Stop taking life so damn seriously all the time, and let your fun-loving and carefree side out to play once in a while.
