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.

Feeling like an outsider. Who cares?

by soularcher on December 17, 2011   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I mean, after my 'change of sides', I gained many things. But it's just natural that, after putting some distance between the 'popular' girls and me, I would lose some privileges.

In yesterday's party, and the one before, I felt like an in-between, a sort-of-outsider, dangling in the middle of two worlds: nice enough to have the up-side not hate me, at least.

I guess it's just the price to pay, isn't it? Who cares if I'm not one of them anymore? Most of them are bad, anyway.
