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.

They didn't say how to help.

In PT/OT they say for going down stairs to put the one that's the worst off down first and when going up the better one first (bad goes down, good goes up) they don't say what to do when both your legs hurt so evenly and you can barely move but going down the stairs is the only option because that's where everything that could help is.
