A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Wanted to tell him, but can't

by Emilogic on October 5, 2016   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I realize it's not normal to basically never feel emotions, to be callous, and basically, psychopathic. But I'm not psychopathic, because I'm not impulsive, or charismatic. I had to tell my crush, who's a good friend of mine, because I felt he deserves to know. But the easiest way to describe it is psychopathy, except it comes with a ton of connotations, assumptions and stereotypes that aren't me. But he doesn't know that without my explaining it, and he's scared of me now
