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.

Twenty years changes people. Hold on!

by H2point0 on November 11, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I always want to tell my newly married friends that things will change, not to judge other couples by the standards of what they feel like right now.

But when you speak of the difficulties in relationships, people assume you're not happy. Nobody can go 20 years in a relationship without some ups and downs.

So I just say hold on! Like most rides it can be fun, scary, and at times it lags because some unforeseen glitch has you sitting for 20 minutes in the same place stagnant.
