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.

Erased 'hate' from vocabulary. It works.

by Amapola on September 26, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I can't stand... I really dislike... It's so annoying when... It frustrates me when... I can't accept it when... It angers me... it pains me...

These are some of the phrases with which I replace the word 'hate' -Not only I realised that I don't have 'hate' in my heart, but this awareness gives me a totally new perspective to what I want to say while it helps me create more positive karma.

If I had children, this would be one of my parental guide lessons.
