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.

We're on a break = dumped.

by lomarie on July 8, 2011   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I don't know about you, but I have always believed that breaks are a bunch of BS. I've always seen it as a "nice" way to leave someone. To give them some sort of hope so you don't get completely heart broken. I always think of that Friends' episode, when Ross sleeps with someone else because him and Racheal were on a break ("But we were on a break!!"). And despite knowing this, I think when on "breaks" a part of the heart secretly hopes and prays that things will be resolved.
