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.

To Life: I now love me.

by Choperson on January 22, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I am the eldest of five children. Two brothers and two half sisters. When I was growing up, my biological father chose to love my half-sisters more than he ever loved me and it broke my heart. I always tried to gain approval believing that I could never be good enough. I still struggle but after a broken engagement and leaving home, I have learned that I am good enough.
