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.

unfriended aunt, not social media responsible

by PrincessLief on March 17, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

My aunt is always taking my photos and re-posting them on her page. that's not the bad part, I wouldn't mind if she was just saying "my how beautiful she has become" but she doesnt do that. She always comments how I look so much like my father, and always posts one on his birthday and around the anniversary of his death. I loved my father, but I still have some deep issues that I haven't settled with myself that includes him. I didn't give her permission to use me as a pity party for herself, and she's hurting me instead. Today is my dad's birthday and she posted yet another picture, so I just ended it, once and for all.
