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.

Seeing you still growing, hurts me...

by iLoveWritingOnMyArms on April 19, 2011   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

Ahh, I added my ex (first love ever) on facebook, and even though I'm the one who broke up with him, it hurts to see him getting all flirty with other girls, even if I'm moving on too, with this other guy... I guess I'm being selfish, but I really regret it and I miss my ex, but I guess bringing it up almost half a year later would be stupid. What did I expect? That my ex would actually keep his promise of undying love and never love a girl at our young age? No, I'm just jealous I guess... I wish I still didn't have feelings for him.
