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.

He knew me before anyone else.

He saw my scars months before anyone. . Before I was outed. And he embraced me. He's the only one that I trust. . the only one I'm not scared of. Thank you for loving me. All of me. You'll never know how you saved my life. Although you may never know it, I love you too.
