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.

Ignoring 50% of his painful moaning.

He has so much pain so often that I have to ignore some of it. His pain triggers my emotions and I can't be there for him if I am crying. As cruel as it sounds, ignoring him is better than sobbing with him. I have to keep going in order to take care of him.
