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.

Family, friends, sweetheart, enemies, must love.

There are lots of different kinds of people in our life, they come and go through the seasons of change. We (almost) always love our family (biological or not), whether or not we admit it. Friends, by very nature, are loved and easy to love. The lover we love, at least for a while. Enemies we are called to love, even though it can hurt. Love comes in a thousand varieties, it's a lifelong journey to learn to express them all! Yay for cheesiness :)
