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.

Trying to invert my insecure nature.

It has been a constant struggle since childhood. Even as an adult, in a successful position, loving family and husband who adores me it is still tough some days. I tend to overthink things and if I'm not careful it will spiral to the point that I have irrational thoughts. It is just something to work on and try to improve.
