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.

Would you take the blue pill?

by Dirtypirette on June 11, 2011   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I was thinking, not too long ago, how my job has changed me and my views of others. I can see the worst in people because some people don't know how to act appropriately in public. Before I started working there, I seemed to have a pretty positive view on others, whereas now I would more or less consider myself a realist, and will sometimes portray myself as being negative. Question is, as in "The Matrix", if you were offered the blue pill, which would allow you to become blissfully ignorant about the world around you, would you take it? Or would you choose to take the red pill, where you still know about all the terrible things that people can do and how awful they can act at times?
