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.

Felt ballsy. Wrote him a note.

I gave it to him today. It said:

Dear Jimmy,
I know you never wanted to hurt me, but in the end that's what you did. It even got to the point where I started to feel bad about myself because you cheated on me with a girl who used to annoy you (and that didn't make sense to me at all). I hope you find another girl who will make you happy. And even though things ended this way, I will never regret being your girlfriend. No one has ever taken an interest in me the way that you did. I'll see you around. -Hannah
