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.

Long-suffering. Communication. Compassion. Honesty. Trust. Faithfulness.

Me and my sweetheart are doing some relationship counseling, and one thing we had to do was list what is needed in a successful relationship. We could not use "love" in any form. This is what I came up with: tolerate your differences and quirks, speak your needs clearly, have compassion for their problems and needs, never lie, trust them so that you don't need to control or always be present, and stay faithful in all things (physically, emotionally, and to every promise).
