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.

Could’ve never lived you so well.

I’m sure people have all types of advice for you on how to live your life.
I may even make the mistake of throwing in my 2 bits from time to time.
I could not have walked your path.
I can only fantasize how much better I could have done...saying things like...
”why don’t you just...?”

I’ll try to catch myself more often.

Let’s also try not to do it to ourselves.
